Laser Therapy Uses in Pets
The veterinary field continues to advance in technology every day. One of the newest treatments on the market is veterinary laser therapy, which can be used to manage pain, inflammation, and wounds in pets.
From a technical standpoint, laser therapy uses therapeutic lasers to alter your pet’s cells and tissues which can stimulate and activate cells to promote growth, proliferation, migration, and repair.
Laser therapy helps tissues repair by causing the following:
- Endorphin release
- Muscle relaxation
- Faster healing and repair
- Decreased inflammation
Laser therapy has been used to treat a wide variety of issues including:
- Back pain
- Ear infections
- Soft tissue injuries
- Muscle, ligament, and tendon injuries
Laser therapy is a much more comforting and pain-free way to treat injuries in your pet.
