Achilles / Calcaneal Tendon Injury or Rupture – With or Without Surgery

  1. A large or small Assisi Loop can be used to treat the Achilles/calcaneal tendon area of the pet.  Positioning is extremely important for optimal effect.
  2. Position the pet lying down either flat on the ground or up on their elbows with their rear limbs out to one side.
  3. Place the Assisi Loop directly over the injured area with the center of the Loop centered over the area.  See Picture
  4. The signal generator can be positioned to help balance and stabilize the unit during treatment.
  5. The signal generator should be located in view of the person treating the pet.
  6. Do not leave the pet unattended when using this placement as small movements can change the positioning of the Loop and the area being treated.
  7. Turn the unit on by pressing the button on the front of the white rubberized signal generator; green lights will illuminate about once per second.
  8. Keep the unit in place for the full 15 minutes until the unit shuts off.
  9. Use the unit 4 times daily, if possible, for 5 days and then twice daily for an additional 5-15 days to speed healing and improve strength of the tendon as it heals.
  10. The Assisi Loop can be used once or twice daily if any discomfort or inflammation return, at any point, to this location.
  11. There should be a minimum of 2 hours between treatments for optimal nitric oxide enhancement.
