Annie is our 16 year old rescue Border Collie. She was a ranch dog and had a very hard life prior to her coming to live with us resulting in much body pain and stiffness. Dr. Carlson and Mountainside Veterinary Rehabilitation have provided her with significant pain relief using massage therapy and acupuncture as well as some chiropractic treatments. Dr. Carlson’s knowledge of this Integrative approach and her quiet and calmness with Annie has been such a positive experience for all of us. Annie now lives a happy life with ongoing support through the exercises Dr. Carlson has taught us to support her aging body.
Due to their fur and ability to hide their injuries this tool can be instrumental in diagnosing which leg/area of the animal is affected. It uses ultra-thin sensors and innovative scanning electronics to provide objective bio-mechanical data. This information helps us to identify areas of problems in gait, asymmetries and weight bearing to help make better decisions for treatment to help improve patient outcomes and results. It will help us monitor improvements in gait and weight-bearing.
