    How does Laser Therapy help my pet?

    Laser Therapy is a clinically proven modality in both human and veterinary medicine. It is an FDA-cleared treatment that reduces inflammation and results in pain reduction which is effective in treating acute pain, chronic conditions, as well as post-operative pain.

    Laser therapy treatment is safe, painless, and fast.  Treatments to deeper tissues are administered in 5 to 10 minutes.  Typically, even chronic patients exhibit improvement after 4 to 7 treatment sessions.  Laser Therapy utilizes the body's own healing powers to stimulate cellular activity.  Despite short treatment times, Laser Therapy treatments initiate a healing process that continues to actively reduce inflammation for up to 24 hours after treatment.

    Frequently Asked Questions About Laser Therapy

    How long does the treatment take?  The treatment protocols are unique to each patient and condition.  Therefore, treatments will vary in time, complexity, and cost.  for some chronic patients, multiple joints will be treated during a single laser treatment.  When appropriate, laser therapy can be used as a complementary adjunct to other treatment plans, such as post-surgical to reduce pain and inflammation, and accelerate healing.

    What can be treated with laser therapy?  If your pet is feeling pain, has inflammation or a wound, the laser is a sterile, pain-free, surgery-free, drug-free treatment.  The laser is used to treat a variety of injuries, wounds, fractures, neurological conditions, numerous dermatological problems, and pain.  Whether your pet is rehabilitating from trauma or injury, healing from wounds, or simply aging, the laser has been shown to provide relief and accelerate healing.

    What is involved with treating my pet?  The laser light is delivered though a non-invasive hand piece to treat the affected area.  You pet will feel a gentle and soothing warmth.   As the laser is administered, many pets will relax, much like you would while experiencing a good massage.  The almost immediate relief of pain will allow your pet to be comfortable and any anxiety that your pet initially experienced will dissipate.

    How does Laser Therapy work?  The Companion Therapy Laser system sends photons, or packets of light energy, deep into tissue without damaging it.  These photons are absorbed within the mitochondria of the cells and induce a chemical change called "photo-bio-modulation".  This light energy then inspires production of ATP in the cell.  ATP is the fuel, or energy, cells need for repair and rejuvenation.  Impaired or injured cells do not make this fuel at the optimal rate.  Increased ATP production leads to healthier cells, healthier tissue, and healthier pets more quickly.

    Are there any side effects?  There are no known side effects with Laser Therapy treatment.
