Lulu receiving Laser Therapy for her Arthritis in her Knee.
Laser therapy is the application of light at a certain wavelength that helps to promote blood flow, healing, and the relief of pain.
Laser therapy can be used for pain management in a variety of conditions including: Arthritis, intervetebral disc disease, cruciate ligament tears, patella luxation, hip dysplasia, elbow dysplasia, and more.
Laser therapy also can be used to promote healing of wounds, and abrasions. And it can shorten the healing time post-operatively for surgery and dental procedures.
Best of all Laser Therapy is painless, and non-invasive. A “probe” is placed onto the painful area, or hovered above an open wound for a period of time established by the veterinarian. The light admitted from the “probe” stimulates blood flow.
For pain management, a significant difference is usually seen after four-five treatments. However for wound healing, one treatment can significantly decrease healing time.
