Pain Management

Animal Medical Center of Mid-America combines multiple approaches to treating pain in order to achieve the best possible outcome for each pet. Supplements, medications, and state-of-the-art equipment can greatly reduce pain and improve a pet’s quality of life. Exams are focused on finding where pain is affecting patients, and then therapy can be focused on specific areas of the body. Specialized diagnostic equipment, including a Stance Analyzer and an infrared camera, improves the detection of pain when used in conjunction with traditional diagnostic tools.

Our Integrated Veterinary Pain Management Center at our Maryland Heights location is one of the few centers of its kind in the United States. And, we are excited to announce that we've begun construction on our Integrated Veterinary Pain Managment Center at our St. Louis City location!

Pain management services include:  

Underwater Treadmill

This allows pets to either return to their previous state of mobility or aid in their transition to new state of mobility.

Rehabilitation Services

Through the use of assistance, multiple mobility devices and exercises help pets return to previous states of mobility or help a pet adjust to a new state of mobility.

Class IV Laser Therapy

Laser therapy targets specific body areas to relieve pain and inflammation, stimulates tissue regeneration, and helps the body release endorphins to fight pain naturally.

Platelet-Rich Plasma Therapy

A patient's own blood cells are processed and injected back into the specific joints where arthritis is occurring. The high concentration of growth factors and healing proteins help reverse the joint damage and aid the body in restoring healthy joint tissue.

Nutrition Counselling

Pet obesity is the number one health problem encountered today.  Not only does the extra weight place stress on joints and ligaments, but fat tissue also promotes inflammatory conditions inside the pet's body.

Chiropractic Care

AMCMA works with experienced individuals in veterinary chiropractic care to bring these resources into our facility to treat pets.
