Pulsed Signal Therapy

 

We are proud to be the only clinic in the state of Ohio to offer this service!

Cartilage and connective tissues help support and protect our pet's joints. Throughout life as both routine and strenuous activity are performed, enormous stress can be placed on these structures.

Research has revealed that when these tissues are stressed, a lower power electrical signal is produced. Scientists believe that this natural signal tells the body to repair, nourish or replace the damaged tissue. Disease, aging and injury can disrupt these signals. When this happens, the body is unable to make the necessary repairs, resulting in pain, stiffness and mobility deficits. 

It is estimated that one in five adult dogs suffer from painful or degenerative joint diseases, which can seriously impact their quality of life. Signs exhibited by dogs experiencing these diseases can include:

  • Limping
  • Reluctance to perform daily activities
  • Falling behind on walks
  • Difficulty rising after naps or in the morning
  • Stiffness
  • Repeated licking of a joint
  • Personality changes
  • Loss of appetite
  • Worsening of symptoms in rainy or cold weather

 


 

Pulsed Signal Therapy (PST) can mimic these natural low power electric signals. This activates the normal healing process and stimulates the growth and repair of tissue! It affords the body an opportunity to heal itself through non-invasive and pain-free means. Since the signal produced by the machine replicates the signal already present in the body, there are no side effects.

The benefits of this therapy include a significant decrease in the severity of joint pain and swelling. It improves mobility, activities of daily life and can even help our pets sleep more soundly!

The success of the treatments have been documented in multiple clinical studies, including a six month investigation in Munich that revealed a 65% reduction in pain in over 3/4 of the dogs treated! Other combined studies have demonstrated significant and long-term pain reduction in over 35,000 pets.
