Therapeutic laser is currently being used to successfully treat chronic pain and other inflammatory conditions in human chiropractics. Light energy is used to warm deeper tissues increasing regional blood flow, decreasing inflammation and to promote healing. The process is painless and can be done in the absence of anesthesia or sedation. A treatment typically takes 5-10 minutes, but can vary depending on the number of areas to treat and the nature of the pain. We often encourage you to stay with your pet during the therapeutic laser treatment to decrease your pet's anxiety.
Therapy lasers have been used not only to treat conditions such as chronic joint pain and acute soft tissue injuries, but also to expedite post operative healing.
