Laser Therapy is the use of specific wavelengths of light (red and near infra-red) to create therapeutic effects. These effects include improved healing time, pain reduction, increased circulation and decreased swelling.
There is no patient sedation or restraint and the experience is usualy pleasant and comforting. Although improvement is often seen after the first visit, most patients require several treatments (3 to 8) for greatest benefit. For most conditions, we recommend a multi-visit treatment plan. Treatments vary in length, but most sites require 2 to 8 minutes. A majority of patients exhibit greater comfort and mobility within 12 to 24 hours after a laser treatment.
Class IV Laser Therapy treatments are cumulative in nature. The length and frequency of treatments varies with your pets condition. A sample treatment schedule is as follows:
- Every other day for one week (3 in total)
- Twice the second week (2 in total)
- Once the thrid week (1 in total)
During each painless treatment, laser energy increases circulation, drawing water, oxygen ad nutrients to the damaged area. This creates an optimal healing environment that reduces inflammation, swelling, muscle spasms, stiffness and pain. As the injured area returns to normal, function is restored and pain is relieved.
During Laser Therapy the infra-red laser light interacts with tissues at the cellular level and metabolic activity increases within the cell, improving the transport of nutrients across the cell membrane. This initiates the increased production of cellular energy (ATP) that leads to a cascade of beneficial effects, increasing cellular function and health.
Numerous studies show that Laser Therapy can help with:
