Laser therapy is an intense beam of light directed into tissues to help reduce pain and inflammation while increasing blood flow and enhancing the rate and quality of tissue healing. Laser therapy can help patients with chronic conditions like arthritis, hip dysplasia, and neuropathies. It can also help with acute conditions such as abscess, hematomas, and acute muscle discomfort. Laser can help increase healing post operatively for cruciate repairs and other elective surgeries.
The primary action of laser light interacts with tissues at a cellular level, increasing metabolic activity within cells and improving the transport of nutrients across the cell membrane. This initiates the increased production of cellular energy that leads to a cascade of beneficial effects. These effects promote tissue repair and remodeling, improve circulation, and reduce inflammation.
This therapy is non-invasive and pain free. Each treatment takes ten to fifteen minutes, depending on the number of areas treated. The number and length of treatments will be determined by the veterinarian and customized for each individual pet.
