How to use the Assisi Loop and how soon you'll see results

Jun 18, 2014

 

Assisi Animal Health relies on veterinary professionals to determine when to prescribe the Assisi Loop for their patients.  We also rely on their assessment of the animal's condition to determine the most effective protocol recommendation.  People who are new to our technology frequently ask us how often to use the Loop.  The Assisi Loop is effective at accelerating healing, reducing inflammation and increasing blood flow.  This means that the Loop is effective for a variety of conditions.  Below we offer some general recommendations to answer this question.

How often to use the Assisi Loop:

    • For acute conditions (such as post-surgical treatment or recovery from a trauma), we recommend that you continue 2 to 4 treatments per day for the first week or so and then taper off for the next 7 to 10 days or until the condition is fully healed.




    • For chronic or degenerative conditions, we recommend that you continue with 2 to 4 treatments per day for 7 to 10 days and monitor the animal until you see improved mobility and less pain response.  Again, you can taper down to 1 or 2 treatments per day or even 1-3 treatments per week.  With some chronic and degenerative conditions, the patient may get to the point that they would only be treated as needed for pain, particularly if it is a condition that is prone to flair-ups.



Ultimately, you want to consider that the Assisi Loop is catalyzing the anti-inflammatory cascade as well as accelerating the body's own healing properties.  (See post about the the effects of PEMF here.) We rely on veterinarians to assess the animal and to work with the pet owner on the best treatment protocols for each case.  For example, you may have a pet on Rimadyl or other anti-inflammatory medications and your goal would be to work toward discontinuing these drugs.  In this instance, you would keep the Assisi Loop treatments at 3 or 4 times per day until you have fully discontinued the medications, then you can begin to reduce the number of treatments per day as your pet continues to show good mobility and low to no pain response.

How soon will I see results?


For acute inflammation, you should see noticeable relief after the first or second treatment.  With chronic or degenerative issues, you may not see notable results for 4 to 8 weeks.  You'll want to continue the treatments as recommended above for continued healing.

**Please note that in order to get the full number of treatments from your Loop, you'll want to allow 2 hours after every 15-minute treatment so that the capacitor can recharge.  Otherwise, the capacitor will draw from the battery and reduce the number of treatments available.**
