Me and Remy on PEMF

Years ago when I injured my knee, (ACL and medial meniscus), surgery was not a good option. So I endured the pain of arthritis settling in, discomfort whenever I walked, and limitations on doing many things I loved doing. Then along came PEMF! (Pulsed Electro Magnetic Force)

I borrowed a PEMF machine, and after using it daily for two weeks, my knee pain was dramatically reduced. I could exercise enough to rehab my knee without surgery. Since then, I have used this excellent therapy on many people, and, through my affiliation with several veterinary offices, am now using it with animals – mostly dogs, some horses, and some cats.

Keep on truckin……

As we age, our joints and muscles continue to need motion to maintain their balance and motion. True for animals too. When your dog and cat (or other pets) begin to reach those golden years, daily exercise is even more important in some ways.

In dogs, it is very common to see that stiffness upon getting up first thing in the morning, after lying for the day, after too much vigorous activity.

Underwater Treadmills

Underwater treadmills are becoming much more common in veterinary offices around the country.  I was fortunate enough to work with a veterinarian 5 years ago that included this great therapy in her office along with acupunture and chiropractic care for her canine patients.

These treadmills are designed with rehab in mind.  The dog is supported with a life jacket (when needed) and the water is raised until the dogs feet are easily moving through the movement of the treadmill.    More water can be used with joints that need less compression – post surgical knees, symptomatic discs etc.  Speed can be monitored.
