Laser Therapy

APPOINTMENT

Laser therapy is the use of specific wavelengths of light to create a therapeutic effect.

These effects include improved healing time, pain reduction, increased circulation, and decreased inflammation.

The laser emits photons, or packets of light energy, that penetrate deep into tissue without damaging it. These photons are absorbed within the mitochondria of the cells and induce a chemical change called photobiomodulation. This light energy then inspires production of ATP in the cell. ATP is the fuel that cells need for repair and rejuvenation. Impaired or injured cells do not make this fuel at an optimal rate. Increased ATP production leads to healthier cells, healthier tissue, and healthier animals.

Laser therapy is frequently used in conjunction with other forms of therapy including pain medications, chiropractic adjustments, massage, and electrotherapy. Laser therapy is also used following surgery and dental procedures.

 

Laser therapy is a sterile, pain-free, surgery-free, drug-free treatment option if your pet is feeling pain, has inflammation, or has a wound. The laser is used to treat a variety of problems, including:

  • Wounds
  • Infections
  • Cuts/bites
  • Inflammation
  • Tooth extraction pain relief
  • Sprains, strains & fractures
  • Post-surgical healing/pain relief
  • Degenerative joint disease (DJD)
  • Periodontal disease
  • Lick granulomas
  • Hip dysplasia
  • Feline acne
  • Tendonitis
  • Arthritis
  • Urinary tract disease

There are numerous documented benefits of therapeutic laser including pain relief, inflammation reduction, acceleration of tissue healing, improved blood circulation, reduction in fibrous (scar) tissue formation, improved nerve function, acceleration of wound healing, and stimulation of acupuncture points. All of these benefits are provided without any negative side effects.
