Welcome To Against All Odds Animal Therapy

Against All Odds is dedicated to the healthcare and balance, both mentally and physically of our equine and canine friends through a natural, holistic approach.

Regardless of the discipline or level of athleticism, whether a backyard companion or a top competitor, an agility dog or a family dog, it is our belief that by treating the “whole” animal….mind…. body… and spirit, one can achieve the optimum level of health, so that they can perform to their highest capabilities.

It is the Acuscope/Myopulse Therapy System, that has allowed us to reach this new level of health for our animals.

This system has been successful in treating common equine problems such as pulled muscles, strained tendons and ligaments, inflammation, abscessed feet, and nerve paralysis. Canine conditions include lick granulomas, hip dysplasia, and disc disease just to name a few.

It is particularly successful in relieving or greatly reducing the swelling and pain of tissue damage occurring from athletic injury.

In addition, the Acuscope/Myopulse has proven effective in the treatment of conditions thought to be life threatening or crippling, such as laminitis, navicular problems, deep puncture wounds, and deteriorating coffin bones, as well as degenerative conditions.

All services offered here are not substitutes for proper veterinary care.

The Electro-Acuscope/Myopulse System is specially modified to meet the electrical potentials of large and small animals. It is used to treat a wide variety of conditions commonly affecting both horses and dogs .

How it works...

The body is made up of a vast number of cells. In many ways, these cells act like tiny car batteries, storing and releasing energy, doing their work of taking in nutrients, releasing waste products, repairing and reproducing themselves, etc. Each cell, like any battery, has a measurable electrical charge which must be maintained in order to function properly.

Energy flows constantly between all cells throughout the electrical circuitry of the body. When damage or trauma occurs to living tissue, there is a disruption in the electrical capacity of the involved cells and after an initial surge, there results a measurable decrease in the production and flow of energy through the electrical network of the involved tissues. This condition is generally accompanied by pain in the area and often results in the body's inability to completely repair itself. Thus, lengthy rest periods and inactivity are often prescribed in order to attain eventual restoration of normal function.
At this point, the Acuscope is frequently introduced. The treatment has been likened to putting a "jump start" on the dead battery of a car. Since the instrument has both feedback and therapeutic functions, it actually provides auditory and numerical readouts which indicate the locations where tissue is damaged and unhealthy. Once abnormal areas are located, the Acuscope can then treat the tissue according to its needs.

The Acuscope DOES NOT actually heal...... it assists the body in healing itself by improving the circulation of blood and oxygen in the involved area and normalizing the electrical circuitry in the nerves and muscles of damaged tissue.

Acuscope Therapy is a modality applied primarily for pain relief, to improve soft tissue function, and to increase range of motion. The Acuscope differs from other electrical stimulation devices in that it delivers its treatment in micro-amps. Most nerve stimulation devices (ordinary TENS) produce milliamperage current designed to bombard the tissue and simply block pain signals from reaching the brain. The Acuscope, in contrast, generates only the level of current required to gently encourage nerve and muscle fiber to return to conduction of normal electrical impulses. In contrast also, ordinary TENS devices provide only temporary relief, whereas a series of Acuscope treatments has a cumulative, long-term healing effect.

In numerous scientific studies, microcurrent stimulation had been proven to have a profoundly beneficial effect on living tissue. Microamperage (below 1 millamp) is the naturally occurring level of current generated by cells throughout the body. In technical terms, some of the benefits of microcurrent stimulation at the cellular level are: opening of voltage-sensitive calcium ion channels, normalizing cell membrane potential, restoring the sodium pump function, enhancing protein synthesis, and increasing ATP production .With this in mind, it is easy to understand why supplying the kind of current naturally occurring in healthy tissue promotes regenerative metabolic activity.

What Our Customers Are Saying

I had never heard of Acuscope or Myoscope therapy until Sheri Betancourt from Against All Odds Animal Therapy and Equine Solutions reached out to me to help my little Leon. She had heard of his tough beginning and thought she could be of help. Click on Image to read more..

Stella 4 year Old Quarter Horse Howell, NJ - On April 20th, 2015, I arrived at the barn after work to find that Stella was not acting quite right. I looked at her more closely and realized that her elbows were swollen, hot, and tender to touch. Click on Image to read more..

Alley is a 12 year old Hanoverian Mare that I purchased in May 2015 to eventually show in the amateur owner hunters. I noticed she was showing some signs of discomfort in her hocks, and stiffness in her shoulders and neck. A friend of mine was trying a new therapy for her pony, called ...

Just wanted to give a special thank you to Sheri Betancourt from Against All Odds! I, like many, was a skeptic (mainly because financially I have to be and must choose what I do as wisely as possible) but Im also a firm believer in you get out what you put in.... Click on Image to read more..

My daughter told me about Sheri and Acuscope/Myoscope therapy after my dog was diagnosed with a partial rupture of her ACL. The vet recommended rest and possible surgery. Marley is 10 years old and I did not want to put her through surgery. Sheri treated Marley for 7 weeks and Marley is once again walking on all 4 legs with no visible limp. Thank you Sheri for helping heal her!
