Laser therapy is the use of laser light to stimulate biological processes that lead to faster healing and pain relief. These lasers are non-invasive and use much less power than surgical lasers. The beneficial effects come not from heat, but from the stimulation of the body’s natural healing processes, releasing its own pain relieving chemical compounds.
Your pet does not need to be restrained or sedated for this treatment and usually soon after the first treatment your pet may move with less pain and/or have a more relaxed stride and better range of motion. Often times, a series of treatments will be necessary, but the healing process begins immediately.
Cold Laser Therapy may be used for any condition that causes swelling and pain, such as:
- Post-surgical pain management
- Wound healing
- Neurological Injury
- Muscle Tears, Tendon & Ligament Tears
- Dental Procedures
