LASER THERAPY FOR YOUR PETS
Therapeutic cold laser treatments can provide remarkable
relief from chronic pain. During each painless treatment, laser
energy increases circulation, drawing water, oxygen and nutrients to
the damaged area. This creates an optimal healing environment that
reduces inflammation, swelling, muscle spasms, stiffness, and pain.
As the injured area returns to normal, function is restored and pain
is relieved. Treatments last about 2-5 minutes per site and are
completely comfortable for the patient.
High-energy laser therapy can penetrate deeply into the body to
diminish pain and stimulate healing. Many pets suffer from chronic
pain due to arthritis caused by hip dysplasia, spondylosis,
traumatic injury, etc. A class of drugs, non-steroid anti-inflammatories
(NSAIDS), has provided significant relief from pain, but long-term
use of these drugs can have some undesirable effects. In addition,
some animals are NSAID-intolerant.
Cats are particularly sensitive to some of
these medications, so there are fewer pain management options
available for the feline patient. Therapeutic cold laser
treatments provide a safe solution for them.
