H-Wave is a neuromuscular stimulator that is a safe, non-painful method of deep penetration. It uses two frequencies, for pain reduction and tissue healing.
Heat is a method that owners can use at home between sessions to improve function and reduce pain. Hot water bottles are the easiest way of achieving this for owners as most dogs tolerate this well.
They can be placed over or under joints and commonly on their backs.
The choice of electrotherapy used will depend on the individual case and they can benefit a range of cases and owners can take home certain modalities to use themselves between sessions.
The most common therapies I use are LASER, ultrasound, H-Wave, heat and cold.
There are many benefits of using electrotherapy:
Improve muscle tone
Improve joint range of motion
Improve neurological issues
Accelerate wound healing
