Sacroiliac (SI) Pain or Injury – Acute

Pain on pressure over the sacrum when standing or when the hip is extended and the sacrum is stabilized.
  1. A small or large Assisi Loop can be used to treat the sacroiliac area of the pet depending on the size of the pet.  Small Assisi Loops can be used for up to Beagle-sized pets when treating just one SI joint.  Larger Assisi Loops can be used to treat both SI joints simultaneously on small pets when positioned correctly.  Dogs larger than a Beagle should use a large Assisi Loop.  With a large Assisi Loop, both SI joints can be treated simultaneously.  Positioning is extremely important for optimal effect.  See Pictures
  2. Position the pet lying down either flat on the ground or up on their elbows.
  3. When treating one SI joint at a time, place the Assisi Loop so that the wing of the Ilium is in the center of the Loop.  See Pictures
  4. To treat both SI joints simultaneously, place the Assisi Loop around the pelvis so that the Loop is positioned over both wings of the ilium, the highest points of the pelvis.  See Pictures
  5. 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 sacroiliac joint(s).  See Pictures
  6. The signal generator can be positioned to help balance and stabilize the unit during treatment.
  7. The signal generator should be located in view of the person treating the pet.
  8. 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.
  9. 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.
  10. Keep the unit in place for the full 15 minutes until the unit shuts off.
  11. Use the unit 4 times daily, if possible, for 5 days.  Treat twice daily for an additional 5 days or until pain is completely resolved.
  12. There should be a minimum of 2 hours between treatments for optimal nitric oxide enhancement.
