Laser therapy, often referred to as low-level laser therapy (LLLT) or cold laser therapy, is a cutting-edge treatment option that veterinarians are increasingly harnessing to enhance the well-being of our beloved animal companions.
This non-invasive and painless procedure utilizes the power of focused light to stimulate healing and reduce pain in pets. By promoting cellular repair and blood flow, laser therapy can accelerate the recovery process for various conditions, such as arthritis, wounds, and post-surgery discomfort. Its versatility and minimal risk make it a valuable tool in veterinary medicine, allowing us to provide gentle, effective, and holistic care for our furry patients, ultimately enhancing their quality of life.
Laser is both a visible and infrared light that stimulates the body to do what it naturally does, but faster and more efficiently.
Therapy occurs when a dose of light energy reaches target tissue and results in decreased inflammation, decreased pain, and accelerated healing. It is suitable to treat a wide variety of conditions including pre-surgical, post-surgical, acute, and chronic disease states.
