Myofascial pain syndrome
Cats can also suffer from back pain. Cats’ spines consists of 27 movable vertebral bodies and are divided into 7 cervical vertebrae, 13 thoracic vertebrae and 7 lumbar vertebrae. In addition to protecting the spinal cord, which runs within the spinal canal, they serve to facilitate movement and ensure a stable posture. The vertebrae represent the starting point for strong torso muscles, which are responsible for proprioception, also known as the sense of balance.
Behandlung mit dem NOVAFON
Neben dem Gelenk selbst spielen vor allem die zugehörige Muskulatur und die Triggerpunkte eine Rolle. Mit dem NOVAFON kann aber die gesamte Kaumuskulatur unterstützend behandelt werden, um die muskuläre Dysbalance auszugleichen und die Bewegungseinschränkungen zu reduzieren.
Treatment with NOVAFONMyofascial pain syndrome does not respond to painkillers (analgesics), so while treating pain with drugs is still common, it makes little sense in this case. Instead, the muscles have to be relaxed. Treatment with the NOVAFON should last a total of 10 to 15 minutes and can be repeated daily. The intensity setting should be individually adapted, as each animal perceives the vibration very differently. Always treat both sides.

Step 1 — Relaxing the muscle groups to the right and left of the spine
In the first step, set the device to vibration level 2 and use the disc attachment on the marked area. You can work in either a stroking or continuous circular motion. The direction of treatment plays a subordinate role – pay more attention to whether the cat is relaxed and is allowing its muscles to relax. Depending on the condition of the coat, it is recommended that you work in the direction of the coat growth. Treat each side of the face for 2 to 3 minutes.
Step 2 — Treatment of stress points
Use the ball attachment to work directly on the trigger points. It is best to feel for the trigger points with your fingertips at the marked areas. To treat these areas, connect the ball attachment, select level 2, and adjust the intensity accordingly. Treat the trigger points for about 1 to 2 minutes each, either by applying light pressure without moving or in small circular movements. After this, treat the next sore area.
In der Anwendung einfach und angenehm. Ich habe bisher die besonders beanspruchte Kiefermuskulatur behandelt (Zähne-Knirsch-Problematik). Sehr angenehm und entspannend! (...) Ich nutze es regelmäßig und gern! 1, 2 Anwenderin S., 15.02.2017, NOVAFON power

»Gelenkprobleme und Muskelverspannungen lassen sich bei einer kooperativen Katze sehr gut mit dem NOVAFON und dem entsprechenden Magnetaufsatz behandeln. Merlin jedenfalls hat die Behandlung sehr genossen und mit lautstarkem Schnurren kommentiert.« ¹
