Cold laser therapy
How it works:
Cold laser therapy is a type of treatment that emits laser energy to cells in the body. This energy is used up by the cells to promote faster healing and pain relieving compounds.
The best part about laser therapy is the instant relief most patients feel. It is a painless experience with no side effects.
It can even replace the need for pharmaceuticals and surgery!
Laser therapy has been studied for decades now with ever promising results. It has also been approved by the US FDA as a treatment option in human medicine.
How often are treatments recommended?
That will depend on the nature of the issue. A recent or acute injury can resolve in with a few treatments , spaced out twice a week or weekly. An ongoing issue may require more treatments and will likely benefit from regular treatment for best results.
Laser therapy can be combined with any other treatment modality we offer : acupuncture, Chinese herbals, nutrition/ supplements guidance. It can also be added to your animal’s current medication regimen. We will collaborate with your animal’s primary vet for the best possible outcome for you and your pet.
If you are noticing PAIN and/or SWELLING with your animal, laser therapy can help!
