Does your pet suffer from painful hip dysplasia? Are you looking for a noninvasive way to treat your dog’s pain? Do you want to help your dog regain his quality of life? Meet the P.A.W. PEMF system. The P.A.W. PEMF system was developed by the dedicated team at Animal Ortho Care, lead by Derrick Campana. This innovative game changer has been specifically designed to address hip pain, including the symptoms accompanying hip dysplasia. The P.A.W. is the first active garment to include PEMF Pulsed Electromagnetic Field technology. P.A.W. is a wearable harness that is truly one of a kind. Due to this wearable design the P.A.W. system, allows pets to remain active and continue with their typical daily activities while receiving valuable healing therapy.
Dogs both young and old can use the P.A.W. system to regain their previous level of activity. At Animal Ortho Care we believe that a loss of mobility doesn’t need to signify the end of a dog’s journey. Human and animal studies have shown that PEMF therapy stimulates an anti-inflammatory response which in turn increases circulation, reduces swelling, and relieves pain. Additionally, P.A.W. can be used by owners post operation to manage their pet’s pain and discomfort. The revolutionary P.A.W. system has allowed pet parents to keep their pets by their side while being confident that their pet’s well-being is addressed. This product is perfect for elderly dogs who suffer from hip dysplasia or osteoarthritis.
The P.A.W. provides PEMF benefits in a compact, light-weight noninvasive system. PEMF technology, as evidenced by the research, is effective in providing temporary relief from common symptoms of hip dysplasia, but this device can also be used for sprains and overall pain management. The P.A.W consists of a multiple-use garment that is specifically designed to house the P.A.W. patches. This specially constructed garment has been crafted to accept hot and cold pack inserts into pockets that are located directly over the hips. The P.A.W. has been designed to provide accurate positioning by ensuring targeted PEMF Therapy to the desired treatment area.
The use of the included hot and cold packs is recommended to achieve the maximum benefit possible while using PEMF. Studies have shown that activity is good for your dog while dealing with conditions like hip dysplasia and arthritis. Consider using the heat pack to pre-warm the area and then perform your daily activities, such as going for a walk, as normal. When you get home, use the cooling packs to help control irritation. Multiple studies have shown that PEMF works to reduce the constant need for non-steroidal analgesic drugs (NSAIDs) helping to make the P.A.W. a more affordable pain management alternative.
What is PEMF? PEMF acts much like an inductive phone charger by creating an electromagnetic field outside the body that produces a voltage potential inside the body. Under normal conditions, nerves operate at -70 millivolts and fire (signaling pain) at -20 millivolts (3). Therefore, increasing the voltage potential in living cells will immediately reduce the sensation of pain. This and more is accomplished because increasing a cell’s voltage potential dramatically increases the presence of calcium ions (Ca2+).
By avoiding an invasive procedure, you’ll spare your pet the anxiety and stress of a full procedure. PEMF stimulation and thermal therapy works at the cellular level, accelerating the reaction rate of Calcium (Ca2+) and Calmodulin (CaM) binding. It is through this process that an increased Nitric Oxide production is achieved in the targeted tissue. Nitric Oxide plays a critical role in reducing COX-2, the enzyme responsible for inflammation and pain.
If your dog suffers from dysplasia, postoperative pain, fatigue, or arthritis, you may want to try using the P.A.W. to manage his symptoms. The P.A.W. is changing the ways that dogs are being treated for hip pain; when the time comes that your dog has a hard time getting up on your bed or walking down the stairs consider trying out the P.A.W. system. At Animal Ortho Care we have been caring for animals for over 13 years. Our groundbreaking team is continually coming up with new and innovative ways to keep your furry family members by your side; either with custom braces, orthotics or the P.A.W. System, Animal Ortho Care can help your pet stay where they belong - at your side.
