PEMF / Loop Use with Acupuncture and Laser Therapy

  • February 16, 2016 10:46 AM EST

    A common FAQ from veterinarians relates to the use of PEMF (the LOOP) in conjunction with laser therapy and acupuncture. Specifically, whether the LOOP can be used on the same day as an acupuncture treatment or laser therapy.

    The answer is absolutely. There are no contraindications to using PEMF with other modalities, and the LOOP is a great take-home treatment option for pet owners to continue the healing process between laser or acupuncture treatments. Because these modalities have different mechanisms of action, there should be at least 2 hours between each treatment modality so that the effect of each individual therapy is maximized.
