Veterinarian Ultrasound Therapy
The qualified veterinarian team at Valley Animal Rehabilitation in Clifton, NJ, provides the latest ultrasound therapy technology for detecting animal pregnancy, tumors, or blockages. It is also a therapeutic tool that can diminish or eliminate soft tissue injury or illness pain. Call us if you live in Clifton, Nutley, or Montclair, NJ, and your pet might benefit.
Ultrasound technology is both a diagnostic and therapeutic tool. On the one hand, it can see inside your pet’s body and detect injuries, conditions, diseases, and illnesses. On the other hand, it can stimulate the body’s cells to regenerate and mend themselves, reducing significant pain levels.
As a therapeutic instrument, ultrasound sends high-frequency sound waves into the body, reawakening damaged cells and triggering them to regenerate. It is a painless therapy where a rounded handheld probe presses against the skin to apply harmless sound waves. There are no side effects related to ultrasound therapy.
How Ultrasound Therapy Works on Pets
Ultrasound therapy is a non-invasive treatment modality used in veterinary medicine to promote healing, reduce pain, and improve pets’ well-being. It involves using sound waves to provide targeted therapeutic effects to specific tissues within the body. Let’s take a look:
- Shave the area to be treated.
- A water-based gel is applied to allow free movement of the probe over the skin.
- A probe is pressed onto the skin and moved in a circular pattern as the vet chooses.
- The process lasts from 10-20 minutes.
- The gel is removed, and the process is complete.
Benefits of Veterinary Ultrasound Therapy
The benefits of ultrasound therapy are significant. If your pet is a candidate for ultrasound therapy, it can dramatically speed the healing process and restore health to your pet’s body on a cellular level. Ultrasound therapy works excellently in a veterinarian's capacity because it:
- Relieves pain
- Increases blood flow
- Decreases inflammation
- Reduces muscle spasms
- Triggers cells to regenerate and heal themselves
- Accelerates the healing of bone fractures
- Stretching soft tissues to allow better movement of joints, bones, and soft tissues
- Softens and breaks down scar tissue
