Laser Therapy is a treatment that utilizes a specific wave length of light to interact with tissue to help accelerate the healing process. Used to treat acute and chronic conditions such as muscle strain, soft tissue injuries and arthritis to help eliminate pain, swelling and increase mobility function.
During the painless treatment, laser energy increases circulation, drawing water, oxygen and nutrients to the damaged area. This reduces inflammation, swelling, muscle spasms, stiffness and pain and improves healing time.
Treatments vary in length from 1 – 2 treatments up to 6 treatments and some conditions may require ongoing periodic care to control pain. The typical treatment time is 3 to 8 minutes depending on the size of the area being treated. Your pet may feel improvement after their first treatment; sometimes they may not feel improvement for a number of treatments. The treatments are cumulative and results are often felt after 3 or 4 sessions.
