How does it work?
Light energy 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.
Laser therapy is the use of specific wavelengths of light to treat painful and debilitating conditions.
Accelerated Tissue Repair and Cell Growth
Improved Vascular Activity
Increases Metabolic Activity
Stimulation of Trigger and Acupuncture Points
Reduced Fibrous Tissue Formation from Cuts, Burnts, etc.
Improved Nerve Function
Faster Wound Healing
Effects of Laser Therapy
What can be expected during treatment?
Laser Therapy is a painless treatment that can typically last a few minutes, depending on the condition and area being treated. Your pet may experience a comfortable sensation at the point of application, but it is common to have no sensation during the treatment. Your pet should not feel any heat during the treatment, which is unique to Laser Therapy.
What can be expected after 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 can be controlled with regular treatments. The effects of Laser Therapy are cumulative; therefore, expect to see improvement as the treatment plan progresses. it is important that once your pet starts receiving laser therapy that the entire course of treatments is completed, as recommended by your doctor.
"When we first started our 10 year old Samoyed, Bear on laser treatments at Belmont Vet. He could hardly get up from laying down position, couldn't navigate the stairs very well, or enjoy a walk. The vet took x-rays and determined he had arthritis in his right knee and hip and suggested we try the laser treatments.
Since then, Bear gets up much easier, is able to go up and down the steps off the deck into the back yard and we walk a mile a day. We keep him on a maintenance laser treatment as needed. It has been great for us too as he weighs 100 punds and is not a dog you can pick up and carry. The laser treatment has been a lifesaver for us and Bear."
