Laser therapy is actually commonly used in human physical therapy and rehab, and it involves a low-level radiation output that allows your veterinarian to pinpoint the energy exactly where it’s needed most - and nowhere else. The dual function laser offers the most advanced platform for photobiomodulation treatments and, the first of its kind, photo thermal therapy for low-grade mast cell tumors.
This low-level laser energy uses a process called photobiomodulation (PBM) that transmits light energy from the laser to the cells of injured tissue. This process results in decreased inflammation, decreased pain, and accelerates your pet's healing so that they recover quickly.
This doctor-prescribed, technician-driven modality effectively treats a wide variety of conditions including pre-surgical, post-surgical, acute, and chronic disease states. Benefits include increased local blood stimulation, increased nutrient levels in the affected area, boosted collagen production, accelerated formation of new blood vessels, and production of endorphins - all things that help your pet’s injury or wound heal faster and feel less painful along the way.
How numerous and how frequent we recommend the treatments to be depends on the severity and type of injury or condition. Generally, wounds require two to three cold laser treatments per week for at least a few weeks.
