Laser therapy is a painless, noninvasive, and drug-free therapy used to treat a variety of injuries, wounds, fractures, neurological conditions, dermatological problems, and pain.
Laser therapy focuses red and infrared light on tissue at and below the surface of the skin. The light energizes the cells, producing a structural protein called collagen used to repair tissue. Lasers continue to promote healing by supporting vascular dilation and synthesis, increasing blood circulation to the affected region. The stimulation also releases the body’s own pain-relieving hormones and enhances the body’s ability to heal itself.
Conditions improved with laser therapy:
- Hip dysplasia
- Wound and tissue healing
- Ear infections
- Dental inflammation
- Arthritis and degenerative joint disease
- Musculoskeletal injuries
- Neuromuscular disease
Treatments are a safe and relaxing experience for pets and many actually fall asleep during the session!
