Pain control generally requires a combination of techniques. A typical spinal disease or other arthritic patient, for example, has a wide range of options. The best current therapy involves stem cells, piezo acoustic wave, laser therapy and PRP (platelet rich plasma) . Other options include pain medications, cortisone injections, physical therapy, acupuncture, weight loss and various surgeries. A plan customized to your pet’s condition is paramount.
At Divine Animal Hospital, we offer multiple pain management options, including:
Reducing pain and promoting healing is a top priority at Divine Animal Hospital in Vero Beach. To that end, we have invested in a Class IV therapeutic laser, which we use on patients following surgery or an injury to help manage a range of chronic and acute conditions.
Laser therapy is a painless, FDA-approved medical procedure that uses low-level lasers to stimulate the natural healing capabilities of the body's cells. This form of laser therapy is effective at promoting healing on a cellular level as well as decreasing inflammation after surgery, injury, or areas of the body affected by chronic illnesses such as arthritis or acute conditions such as otitis. It can also be used to increase joint mobility and relieve the aches and pains common to geriatric pets.
Divine Animal Hospital in Vero Beach, Florida has been having remarkable success with stem cell therapy for spinal disease as well as other joints. Some time ago, a 15-year-old spaniel was brought in for euthanasia because it could not walk. The owner asked, “Is there anything you can do?” We suggested a wide range of treatments and our Vero Beach stem cell and laser therapy combination was selected. To our delight, within a week, this old dog was not only walking, but wanting to go on walks and pulling on the leash.
In order to provide your pet with the most state-of-the-art medical technology, Divine Animal Hospital has invested in Piezo Acoustic Wave Therapy. Similar to shockwave therapy, this non-invasive treatment uses soundwaves to target and heal specific areas of pain. This procedure is quiet, nearly painless, and generates a strong pressure wave at the point of focus. Energy coupling is spread over a broad area, which reduces the energy density at the surface of the skin while decreasing your pet’s sensation of pain.
Effective and gentle Piezo Acoustic Wave Therapy can help with:
