Laser Therapy

Laser Therapy uses specific wavelengths of light to treat conditions that are painful and debilitating for cats or dogs. The light stimulates inter-cellular activity within damaged cells, to reduce pain and speed recovery of the cell. As the cells recover, healing occurs. Laser therapy is painless and can treat acute and chronic ailments, with no known negative side effects.

Class IV Laser Therapy is designed to produce an efficient and simultaneous effect on pain and inflammation within a short period of time.

Laser Therapy Benefits include:

Chronic pain relief including arthritis

Acute pain relief including trauma or injuries

Anti-Inflammation

Damaged tissue healing

Improved local blood circulation

Faster post-surgical recovery

Restoring mobility

Frequently Asked Questions

 

What is laser therapy?
        Laser therapy is a surgery-free, drug-free, noninvasive treatment to reduce pain, reduce inflammation and speed and promote healing. It can be used alone or in conjunction with another therapeutic modality such as acupuncture or chiropractic. It has been scientifically proven to be successful in treating post-surgical pain and many acute and chronic conditions.

 

How does a Class IV laser work?
        Class IV deep tissue laser therapy uses a beam of laser light to deeply penetrate tissue without damaging it. Laser energy induces a biological response in the cells called “photobiomodulation,” which leads to decreased pain, reduced inflammation and increased healing speed. The laser light is delivered through a noninvasive handpiece to treat the affected area. The animal may feel a gentle soothing warmth as the amount of laser light penetrating into the animal is substantial to help heal.
