Rehabilitation and Acupuncture Service for Canines

IMG_7612

Rehabilitation can be used to treat chronic conditions such as osteoarthritis, as well as acute injuries. It is an important adjunctive treatment both before and after surgery for many orthopedic diseases, such as cruciate ligament rupture, patella luxation, or spinal surgery. Your dog may benefit from laser therapy and/or acupuncture if they are not as active as they used to be, or are showing signs of pain and slowing down.

Acupuncture

Acupuncture is a form of traditional Chinese medicine that originated in ancient China and has evolved over thousands of years. Multiple studies have shown that acupuncture improves quality of life and pain levels in dogs with arthritis and orthopedic injuries.

Acupuncture is performed using very small needles along the energy meridians of the body to unlock energy so that it can flow more freely, which decreases inflammation, improves healing, and decreases pain.

 

​MLS Veterinary Laser Treatments

Laser therapy for dogs can be used to treat a multitude of ailments, including:

  • Ulcerations and open wounds
  • Muscle, ligament, and tendon injuries
  • Post-surgical and soft tissue trauma
  • Back pain
  • Neuromuscular disease
  • Acute and chronic ear infections
  • Gingivitis and post-op dental extractions
  • Arthritis
  • Degenerative Joint Disease

 

First, by reducing inflammation through the opening of blood vessels and by activating the lymphatic drainage system, thus draining swollen areas. As a result, swelling caused by bruising or inflammation is reduced, which alleviates pain.

 

Second, by stimulating nerve cells that block pain signals from being transmitted to the brain.

Third, by stimulating the production of high levels of endorphins which are pain-killing compounds naturally produced by the dog.

 

The treatment length will vary, but most are approximately 3-8 minutes. Our veterinarians will tailor the length of the series based upon the condition and the response.
