Companion Animal Clinic Provides Cold Laser Therapy for Pets
All types of pets may suffer from pain, inflammation, nerve damage, and chronic discomfort related to injuries or illnesses. Fortunately, many of the same non-invasive, drug-free therapies that work on humans also work on animals.
Cold Laser Therapy: Accelerated Healing and Anti-Inflammatory Effects
Cold laser therapy represents a state-of-the-art, high-tech approach to natural healing and pain relief. Low-level laser energy passes through the skin to warm and heal the tissues underneath. The energy increases blood flow to injured or inflamed tissues, reducing the inflammation and associated pain. It also raises the production of ATP, a cellular fuel source, allowing tissues to repair themselves faster. Dr. Michelle Knerr may prescribe this therapy for arthritis, muscle strain, nerve damage, fractures, back pain, and other common problems in pets.
What to Expect From Treatment Sessions
Animals tolerate cold laser therapy with ease. The treatment method requires shaving or other preparations. Cold laser therapy may make your pet feel much more comfortable and relaxed almost immediately. Multiple sessions may be required to achieve the best results over time.
