In addition to traditional medication, we provide alternative treatments like Class IV Laser Therapy, for both acute pain and chronic pain conditions. A laser treatment can be a very effective treatment option for your pet. It works by providing a focused light energy that penetrates deep into your pet’s skin and muscle to get to the source of the pain. As a result, last therapy accelerates the body’s natural healing process through a process called “photo-bio-modulation”.
How laser therapy helps your pet
Laser Therapy reduces inflammation by causing dilation of the blood vessels in the area and stimulation of the lymphatic drainage system. As a result, inflammation, redness, bruising, and swelling are reduced.
Laser Therapy increases the release of tissue endorphins and aids in the suppression of nerve sensors that signal sensations to the brain. The result is that your pet has a decreased perception of pain.
Accelerated tissue repair and cell growth
Photons of light energy accelerate cellular reproduction and growth. Laser light increases the energy available to the cells so that they can take on nutrients and get rid of waste products more quickly.
Improved vascular activity
Laser light significantly increases the formation of new blood supply in damaged tissue. This speeds the healing process, resulting in more rapid wound healing.
Trigger points and acupuncture points
Laser therapy stimulates muscle trigger and acupuncture points without mechanical invasion to provide musculoskeletal pain relief.
Reduced fibrous tissue formation
As an added benefit to the healing process of skin wounds, laser therapy also reduces the formation of scar tissue.
Immune system regulation
Therapy laser photons have a positive effect on your pet’s immune system by stimulating the production of antibodies and immune cells. An activated immune system helps to prevent secondary infections in wounds and allows the normal healing process to occur.
Faster wound healing
Laser light stimulates the development of new skin cells or fibroblasts. Fibroblasts produce collagen, which is predominant in wound healing in damaged tissue. Collagen is the essential protein required to replace old tissue or to repair tissue injuries. As a result, laser therapy is effective in expediting the healing of open wounds and burns.
