What is laser therapy?
The laser delivers specific red and near-infrared wavelengths of laser light to induce a therapeutic effect within the body. These include increased circulation, decreased swelling, reduction of pain and enhanced tissue repair.
What to expect
There is no patient sedation or restraint required and the experience is usually pleasant and comforting to them. The sensation during treatment is of a soothing warmth and occasionally a mild tingling.
The length and frequency of treatments varies with your pet’s condition. Even though improvements may be seen after the first visit, most patients require several treatments.
The painless application of laser energy promotes increased circulation by drawing oxygen and nutrients to the affected area. This creates an optimal healing environment reducing inflammation, swelling, muscle spasm, stiffness and pain.
Numerous studies show that Laser therapy can help with:
Rolo Clatworthy tried K-Laser:
We could see a change in Rolo right from his first treatment. He seems to have more energy, can manage a bit more exercise (and recovers better after it) and generally has more zest. When Walter last examined him he said that he couldn’t tell which of Rolo’s elbows was the worst one as the range of motion was so improved and a similar comment about the improvement in his range of motion was made when he last went for hydrotherapy. We have been particularly pleased to have the opportunity to try out this treatment as Rolo’s dodgy tummy pretty much rules out medication to help his arthritis. I really can’t see the downside to anyone giving this treatment a try!
