Electrotherapy: Pets with atrophy including IVDD or down from weakness are in need of muscle stimulation. Electrical stim stimulates muscle to move for a passive contraction when muscle can’t or won’t move on its own. Goal with this therapy is to blunt atrophy while healing the underlying cause of weakness or paralysis, lend the ability to get a pet back some quality of function (strength) and back to active movement (reduces the severity of weakness and muscle loss that makes getting back on moving limbs even more of a challenge when down).
