Pulsed Signal Therapy (PST) is a new medical treatment for small animals that effectively treat osteoarthritis, hip dysplasia, degenerative joint disease, rheumatoid disease, back pain, and sports-type injuries. PST significantly relieves the severity of joint pain, tenderness, and swelling. It also improves mobility, allows for restful sleep and restores the activities of daily living without drugs or surgery. Studies have shown that PST offers long-term positive results.
PST consists of pulsed signals that mimic the normal healthy physiological signals transmitted by the body into the joints. This promotes the repair of damaged cells and stimulates the body’s natural repair and maintenance processes. Treatment using prescription medication often focuses on alleviating symptoms. Pulsed Signal Therapy, instead, concentrates on the root cause of the symptoms: the breakdown of cartilage and joint tissue. Pain and swelling can occur when the cartilage wears because of degenerative joint disease, overuse or injury. Pulsed Signal Therapy reproduces the bio-physically correct restoration signal and directs it into the joint. This stimulates the existing cartilage and other damaged structures to repair themselves and function more efficiently. It also accelerates the convalescent period and restores joint function.
Pets receive nine half-hour treatment sessions that take place on consecutive days. The joint or body area is positioned within the PST device, which emits the bio-physiological pulsed signal. Pulsed Signal Therapy is always administered under the prescription and supervision of a veterinarian. The goal is short- and long-term pain reduction and a return to full functionality, all while improving the pet’s quality of life.
