How Cold Laser Therapy Works
Cold lasers therapy uses focused light to stimulate the tissue at and below the surface of the skin. The biochemical effect of this process is the promotion of cellular energy and regeneration, resulting in tissue repair, better circulation and pain relief.
Laser therapy is considered safe and effective in the veterinary industry, and can effectively treat conditions, diseases, and injuries such as musculoskeletal injuries, soft tissue injuries (sprains and strains) and arthritis. It is often recommended as a supplement to other treatment options to provide an improved outcome.
Before treatment, your pet will undergo a full physical exam, along with x-rays if necessary. During the treatment session itself, the laser wand is applied to the area to be treated for 5 to 20 minutes.
Cold laser therapy has a cumulative effect, and so treatments should be done at the frequency recommended by your veterinarian for the best results.
Laser therapy has a variety of benefits for pets including:
- Reduces pain and swelling
- Speeds the healing process
- Enhances circulation
- Decreases nerve sensitivity
- No negative side effects
- No sedation is required
- No need to shave or clip the treatment area
