We are happy to announce that CFE is now carrying the Assisi Loop! The cost for our clients is $265 plus tax – which is about $15 less than if you were to purchase a loop directly from Assisi’s web site.
If you would like us to bring one to your animal’s next visit, just give us a heads up in advance by calling 952-484-5460 or contact Tricia so she can get those arrangements made.
We love the loop as a non-pharmaceutical way to help decrease pain and inflammation. Conceptually, it should help deepen / sustain the benefits of your animal’s chiropractic or acupuncture treatment by creating an environment that supports the body’s restorative processes.
For those of you that would prefer a far nerdier explanation of the Loop – the following paragraphs were taken directly from the Assisi Loop web site (assisianimalhealth.com) …
“By emitting bursts of microcurrent electricity, the Assisi Loop creates a field which evenly penetrates both soft and hard body tissue around the target area. This electromagnetic field causes a chemical cascade, which activates the Nitric Oxide cycle. Nitric Oxide is a key molecule in healing for humans and animals. The compound is released when we exercise, and when we are injured, for the body to naturally repair itself.
The Loop increases Nitric Oxide production to help speed healing of soft and hard tissues–that includes skin, tendons, ligaments, bones and organs. The specific ratio of frequency to burst width used by the Loop has been found to be the most effective at delivering the amount of current that is similar to what is already used by the body. More is not always better, and too much Nitric Oxide production can actually slow healing. When choosing a PEMF device, it is good to know that more power is not correlated with faster healing.
In general, tPEMF™ can be used to speed healing, reduce inflammation, and lower pain levels. For any kind of orthopedic injury or surgery, the Loop is a great tool to use in the recovery stage. The field penetrates fur, bandages, and casts to reach all the tissue in the target area.”
