Dr. Greene from the University of Illinois, College of Veterinary Medicine states:
"New medicinal therapies have fewer side effects than older therapies. Hydrotherapy, massage, laser light, magnets, electro-acupuncture, and electrical energy can also aid in pain relief. Often a combination of
modalities may be used."
Some of the benefits of magnetic therapy are:
- Increases blood flow
- Relieves pain
- Attracts oxygen and increases tissue oxygenation
- Reduces bone and tissue regeneration
- Reduces inflammation and swelling
- Promotes a sound and restful sleep
Magnetic therapy for pets is quite successful because dogs and cats have a faster circulatory system than humans so the magnetic fields are more easily absorbed into the body and you can even use this therapy in conjunction with other traditional treatments.
