Our dedication to providing advanced techniques and technologies includes the use of a non-surgical, drug-free modality known as cold laser therapy -- and this form of care could turn out to be just what your pet needs.
What Is Cold Laser Therapy?
Cold laser therapy is so named to differentiate it from surgical laser treatment, which utilizes a hotter" or higher-frequency beam that actually cuts tissue. A cold or low-level laser operates at a much lower frequency, one that permits the beam to pass through the skin without cutting or damaging it. Its destination is the tissue a few centimeters down, at the site of a painful injury or chronic inflammatory condition. When the laser touches this site, it signals the production of a cellular substance called ATP. ATP is an energy source for cells, so this extra fuel helps the cells rebuild themselves more effectively, thus speeding the healing process.
Cold laser therapy also eases pain and inflammation even as it helps tissues repair themselves. The beam's energy increases circulation in the tissues, helping nutrients to enter and inflammatory substances to exit. This benefit can prove extraordinarily useful for pets who suffer from chronic pain issues but shouldn't be taking heavy painkilling medications.
