Laser therapy accelerates the body’s natural healing process through photo-bio-modulation. This means that the laser acts at a cellular level promoting biological and photo stimulation of cells, decreasing pain and inflammation while promoting healing. Therapy is effective in treating both chronic and acute conditions such as strains, sprains and osteoarthritis, and reducing post-surgical pain and inflammation.Therapy laser has been shown to be beneficial in small and large animals. Some examples of use in small animals include managing osteoarthritis, back pain, torn muscles, ligaments, or tendons.
At Claresholm Vet Services, all of our small animal surgical incisions are treated with therapy laser post-operatively. In our equine patients the therapy laser has been effective in aiding in the treatment of back pain, sacroiliac inflammation, arthritis, disease of the tendons, and with torn muscles and ligaments.
Benefits may include:
- Pain relief
- Decreased swelling and inflammation
- Faster healing times after an injury or surgery
- Easy, comfortable, non-invasive treatment option
