Therapeutic Cold Laser
Low-level laser therapy (LLLT) is a painless treatment that uses clinically tested wavelengths of light to stimulate natural biological processes leading to faster healing and pain relief. Cells in the body absorb laser energy that stimulates the body to release pain relieving compounds, increases circulation and energizes the cells to participate in the healing process. There are no side effects and many times laser therapy can take the place of pharmaceuticals and surgery to treat long-term, degenerative diseases.
Manual therapy is an umbrella term for a variety of techniques using the therapists hands as the tool for treatment. This includes palpation, Massage, Joint mobilization, Scar release etc. Dr. Katy utilizes advanced techniques including myofascial release, active release technique, joint mobilization/manipulation, and trigger point therapy to treat her patients. Manual therapy helps reduce pain, inflammation, and soreness while improving soft tissue and joint mobility.
TENS - Transcutaneous electrical nerve stimulation is a modality that is most commonly used for conservative pain management. TENS can be utilized in a wide variety of cases, from geriatric dogs with chronic pain to post-operative dogs for management of acute post surgical pain. This device utilizes low-level electrical stimulation via the Gate Theory of pain management to block pain signals to the brain, as well as helping the body to release endorphins. The TENS unit is highly adjustable according to treatment objectives and your therapist will adjust treatment parameters according to your specific case.
NMES- Neuromuscular electrical stimulation is used to rehabilitate muscles by stimulating the nerve that causes the muscles to contract. This method is delivered to the patient via leads and flexible, low-resistance electrodes that conform to the skin. NMES can be used to help prevent muscle atrophy, increase local blood circulation, and maintain or increase joint mobility. It is particularly useful in patients with edema, delayed wound healing, or in those unable to perform voluntary movement.
