Fitness, Conditioning & Exercise Therapy
To create a magnetic field, a current must flow through a conductor (i.e. wire). When current flows through a wire a magnetic field is induced at right angles to the wire. When multiple wires are placed together in a parallel fashion, the magnetic fields from all of the wires are added together to intensify the overall magnetic field. It is believed that the benefits of magnetic field are due to its influence on oxygen utilization by the tissues and therefore promotion of healing and/or turnover of cells.
Examples of Indications for Magnetic Field Therapy:
Healthy, end stage rehabilitation patients, and geriatric or deconditioned dogs can be conditioned by means of individualized exercise programs to enhance fine motor control, general strength, endurance, and advanced proprioception by means of a wide range of indoor and outdoor tools and exercise equipment all year around. Proper muscle timing and coordination can mean the difference between re-injury and complete recovery.
Examples of Indications for Exercise Therapy:
- Following an Injury
- Following a Surgery
- Following Spinal Manual Therapy
- Following Trauma
- To build muscle mass and/or core stability (ie. For Show Dogs)
- Following deconditioning due to prolonged illness
- Following Spinal Cord Injuries
- For young animals to help develop body awareness
- For older animals to maintain muscle conditioning and promote enhanced circulation
