Laser Therapy

What is laser?

Laser is an acronym for Light Amplification by the Stimulated Emission of Radiation.

What is laser therapy?

Laser therapy is the use of specific wavelengths of light to treat painful and debilitating conditions.

How does it work?

Light energy (Photons) enters the damaged cells and stimulates inter-cellular activity. This reduces pain in the area and speeds recovery of the damaged cells. Once the cells recover, the healing process is complete.

What can be expected during a treatment?

Therapeutic laser is a painless treatment that can last a few seconds to many minutes, depending on the condition and area being treated.

Your pet may experience a comfortable warmth sensation at the point of application.

What can be expected after the treatment?

Most pets experience positive results in 1 to 3 treatments, with the average course of treatment being 7 to 10 sessions.

Swelling is greatly reduced and there is a rapid relief of pain. Acute conditions usually subside quickly, typically within one phase of treatments, while chronic conditions can be controlled with regular treatments.
