Post Cruciate Surgery

ACL, CCL, torn cruciate.
  1. A small or large Assisi Loop can be used to treat the knee area of the pet depending on the positioning of the Loop and size of the pet.  Small Assisi Loops can be used for up to Beagle sized pets when treating the pet from inside or outside of the knee. Larger pets need the larger Loop for this positioning.  Positioning is extremely important for optimal effect. See Pictures
  2. The Assisi Loop can be placed on the outside of the knee if treating one knee.  See Picture
  3. If treating both knees, then the pet should be lying on their side with their knees pulled down and back so both are positioned below the abdominal cavity.  Place the Loop between the knees so as to treat them simultaneously. See Picture
  4. If the pet will not lie down, an Assisi LOOP-AID can be used.  Attach the Assisi Loop with two Velcro straps to maintain the Loop position with the center of the Assisi Loop over the knee.  See Picture
  5. The signal generator can be positioned to balance and stabilize the unit during treatment.
  6. The signal generator should be located in view of the person treating the pet.
  7. 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.
  8. 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.
  9. Keep the unit in place for the full 15 minutes until the unit shuts off.
  10. Use the unit 3 times daily for 5-10 days or until pain is completely resolved.  Then use as needed.
  11. It is common to utilize the Assisi Loop after long walks or unusual activity when chronic knee issues exist.
  12. There should be a minimum of 2 hours between treatments for optimal nitric oxide enhancement.
