Since the late 1980's the Acuscope/Myopulse System has been used extensively in the treatment of both large and small animals. It has been successfully applied to a wide range of neuro-muscular conditions commonly affecting animal athletes participating in every area of competition: Racing (all breeds), Harness and Barrel Racing, Roping, Cutting and Reining, Dressage, Jumping, Show Horses, Cross-Country/Eventing, Polo, Endurance, Sled Dog Racing (endurance and sprint), Field Trial Dogs, Agility Dogs, Show Dogs, Weight Pull Dogs, and many more.

In each of these fields, injuries frequently occur. Injury can result in an inability to perform competitively. Acute conditions often become chronic problems if not handled immediately. Without proper treatment, seemingly minor problems may become seriously complicated. The following are some of the most common conditions which have been treated successfully with the Acuscope/Myopulse Therapy System, and well documented by Veterinarians and Animal Therapists for over ten years:

Wound Series Slideshow Picture #1 of the series. This is the initial wound. Notice how severe and deep the wound is. This is the second wound photo of this series. This is an initial photo prior to Acuscope treatments. Please note that this wound was treated with animal calibrated instruments. This photo was taken after 1 week of Acuscope treatments. Notice that the tissue looks healthy and is already starting to fill in. Please note that this injury was treated with animal calibrated instruments. This photo was taken after 3 weeks of Acuscope treatments. Notice how the wound is healing from the inside and filling in nicely. The tissue looks healthy, and there is no abnormal scar tissue or proud flesh. Please note that this injury was treated with animal calibrated instruments. This photo was taken after 3 weeks of Acuscope treatments. Please note that this injury was treated with animal calibrated instruments. This picture was taken after 3 weeks of Acuscope treatments. Notice how the wound has filled in significantly without proud flesh or abnormal scar tissue. Also notice that the surrounding tissue and muscles have healed normally. Please note that this injury was treated with animal calibrated instruments. This picture was taken after 3 weeks of Acuscope treatments. Please note that this injury was treated with animal calibrated instruments. This picture was taken after 5 weeks from the initial injury date. There was actually only 4 weeks worth of Acuscope treatments at this time within the 5 weeks period. Notice how healthy the tissue looks, no scar tissue, and no proud flesh. Please note that this injury was treated with animal calibrated instruments. This picture was taken afte 5 weeks from the initial injury date. There were actually only 4 weeks of Acuscope treatments within this time period. Please note that this injury was treated with animal calibrated instruments. This picture was taken 9 weeks from the injury date. There was a total of 4 full weeks of Acuscope treatments within the first 5 weeks, and then there was minimal treatments until this point. Notice that the wound healed extremely well without scar tissue or proud flesh. Please note that this injury was treated with animal calibrated instruments. This is one of the final pictures that was taken at 9 weeks from the injury date. Now compare to the first picture that you looked at. It was suggested to put this horse down due to the severity of his injury and the depth of the wound. He did not have to be put down, the wound healed extremely well, and he went on to being riden again and living a good quality of life! Please note that this injury was treated with animal calibrated instruments. <     >

  • laminitis
  • wobblers syndrome
  • disc disease
  • spinal damage
  • navicular disease/syndrome
  • avascular necrosis
  • founder
  • nerve paralysis
  • FELV (long-term symptomatic relief)
  • hip dysplasia
  • spondylolithesis
  • sweeney

The Electro-Acuscope/Myopulse Therapy System are FDA-approved instruments created originally for use on humans. This system has been used in physical therapy clinics, doctors' offices, and hospitals throughout the country since 1978. Some of the athletic teams who have used the Acuscope/Myopulse Therapy System include: San Francisco 49ers, Pittsburgh Steelers, Oakland A's, San Francisco Giants, US Water Ski Team, Utah Jazz, Tampa Bay Buccaneers, and the LA Rams.

Electro-Acuscope/Myopulse Therapy compliments traditional veterinary procedures to ensure a quicker recovery for the animal, but is not intended to replace proper veterinary care.
