Although it is only one tool in an arsenal of holistic modalities, laser therapy is an option we especially love, because it can restore quality of life to pets with a wide range of incapacitating health conditions and allows us to eliminate the use of potentially harmful drugs and expensive surgeries.
Laser therapy is a pain-free, drug-free, non-invasive procedure that uses light energy, a process called photobiomodulation, to stimulate healing and reduce pain and inflammation. It is highly effective and very well tolerated.
The benefits of laser therapy can’t be overstated. It not only hastens healing, it actually improves the way tissue repairs and renews itself. Additionally, laser therapy enhances the body’s immune response and encourages nerve tissue regeneration. In post-operative patients, laser treatments reduce the risk of complications and act as a potent pain reliever by stimulating the release of your dog’s own endorphins thus diminishing the need for large doses of pain medication.
Laser therapy can reverse muscle atrophy and improve tendon and ligament strength and resilience. Range of motion, function, flexibility, and mobility are all enhanced. In addition, the probability of re-injury is significantly less. Pets get back on their feet and return to their normal activities faster. Run, Spot run!
Laser therapy treatments last about 5–15 minutes and most conditions require multiple sessions. The frequency and duration of the treatment protocol is determined on a case by case basis. The treatments can be a stand alone therapy or, more commonly, combined with other modalities such as acupuncture, Chinese Herbals or The Assisi Loop.
Whether your pet is rehabilitating from trauma or injury, healing from wounds or surgery, or simply aging, this revolutionary new approach to veterinary medicine should improve your pet’s comfort and quality of life.
