Nellie, an eight-year-old Springer Spaniel, used to be an agility dog. She ruptured a tendon three years ago, had recurrent shoulder injuries, and was unable to extend her elbows without weekly therapy.
Lt biceps tendon ruture 4/28/11, MSI, supraspinatus tendonopathy with shoulder osteophytes. Crepitus both patella femoral joints.
Two weeks post injection, no crepitus stifle. Still unable to extend elbows fully until adjusted. Less muscle issue. Two months later, no crepitus stifle. Still unable to extend elbows fully until adjusted. Less muscle issue.
Dramatic improvement within two months. The owner stated “Nellie is not young and is not doing agility any more, but she’s a very tough dog. She’s still very active and tries to climb trees when she’s excited. We rarely see her lame in the front. She’s still getting chiropractic and massage, and VIVR8 is an important part of her therapy.”
