Therapeutic Laser

What is a laser?
Laser is an acronym for Light Amplification by the Stimulated Emission of Radiation.

What is laser therapy?
Laser therapy is the use of specific wavelengths of light to treat painful and debilitating conditions.

How does it work?
Light energy (Photons) enters the damaged cells and stimulates inter-cellular activity. This reduces pain in the area and speeds recovery of the damaged cells. Once the cells recover, the healing process is complete.

What are the most common indications for therapy?

  • Arthritis
  • Tendonitis
  • Muscle strain or sprain
  • Wounds
  • Post-Surgical Swelling/Pain
  • Hip Dysplasia
  • Disc Disease
  • Lameness

What can be expected during a treatment?
Therapeutic laser is a painless treatment that can last a few seconds to many minutes, depending on the condition and area being treated. Your pet may experience a comfortable warmth sensation at the point of application.

What can be expected after the treatment?
Most pets experience positive results in 1 to 3 treatments, with the average course of treatment being 7 to 10 sessions. Swelling is greatly reduced and there is a rapid relief of pain. Acute conditions usually subside quickly, typically within one phase of treatments, while chronic conditions can be controlled with regular treatments.

Therapeutic Ultrasound

The continuous transmission of ultrasonic waves increases tissue cell metabolism, promoting healing of injuries and reduces pain.

Neuromuscular Electrical Stimulation (NMES)

uses of a low level electrical current to stimulate muscle contraction. Commonly use in neurological condition:

  • Activate muscle contractions
  • Facilitates neuromuscular connections
  • Prevents muscular atrophy

Pulsed Electromagnetic Field Therapy (PEMF)

PEMF uses pulsing electromagnetic fields to jump start and accelerate normal biological cellular reactions. It’s a very comfortable 30minutes treatment.

It is beneficial for conditions such as:-

  • Arthritis
  • Tendon and Ligament Tears
  • Joint Conditions
  • Neurologic Injuries
  • Hip Dysplasia
  • Degenerative Joint Disease
  • Degenerative Myelopathy
  • Fresh and Delayed Union Bone Fractures
  • Stiffness and Muscle Soreness
  • Post Op ACL surgery
