What is Laser Therapy

Treating your pets with state of the art technology.

Laser TherapyLaser Therapy is a painless treatment that uses clinically tested wavelengths  of light to stimulate natural biological processes leading to faster healing and pain relief.  Like plants absorb sunlight through photosynthesis, cells in the body absorb laser energy that stimulates the body to release pain relieving compounds and are energized to participate in the healing process.  There are no side effects and many times laser therapy can take the place of pharmaceuticals and surgery to treat long-term, degenerative conditions.

  • Wounds and Soft Tissue Injuries

Is this going to hurt?

Laser TherapyLaser therapy treatment is pain free and in fact, depending on the condition, some patients experience immediate relief.  Soon after the first treatment, your pet may be able to move with less pain or have a more relaxed stride and better range of motion.

Ask your veterinarian how laser therapy may be an effective choice in helping your pet feel  better!

 

Your therapist may ask you, your pet or everyone in the room to wear safety goggles during the treatment.

 

How often do I have to be treated?

Acute conditions can be resolved with just a few treatments, however it is not unusual for a chronic condition to require multiple-treatments over a period of several weeks. Most treatments take up to 15 minutes and are frequently used in conjunction with other forms of rehabilitation. Your veterinarian can evaluate your condition and recommend the best treatment protocol and dosage.Acute conditions can be resolved with just a few treatments, however it is not unusual for a chronic condition to require multiple-treatments over a period of several weeks.  Most treatments take up to 15 minutes and are frequently used in conjunction with other forms of rehabilitation.  Your veterinarian can evaluate your condition and recommend the best treatment protocol and dosage.
