Pain Management for the Young and Old
Acupuncture, Therapeutic Laser, Manual Techniques and more
During the initial consult, a complete orthopedic and neurologic exam will be performed. Young, middle aged and older dogs have fairly predictable reasons to be uncomfortable. Strategies for improving their pain scores depend on their underlying primary problem, co-morbidities (if any), outcome goals, and owner preferences. Acupuncture, therapeutic laser, myofascial release techniques, stretching and massage can be very beneficial in most cases. Some animals suffer from chronic pain and can be helped with targeted pain medications. Some pets have very painful, terminal illnesses that require palliative care for the best quality of life possible. Whatever the situation, we will come up with a plan that is most suitable for your pet and you.
