Woodland Springs Veterinary Hospital strives to stay on the cutting edge of veterinary medicine by offering the most current treatment and utilizing the most up-to-date veterinary technology. One service we offer that exemplifies our commitment to veterinary excellence is the use of the therapy laser. This technology offers an effective alternative to traditional pain management regimens that call for the use of pain medication.
Similar to laser therapy used on humans, this non-invasive medical technology uses concentrated light to stimulate cells and increase blood flow to areas of pets’ bodies that are affected by pain from various causes including arthritis and hip dysplasia. The therapy laser works through a process known as photobiostimulation, which brings about an internal reaction that increases the amount of oxygen that enters and leaves the cells in pets’ afflicted areas. This process increases blood circulation and cell fuel while reducing pain and inflammation. The conditions Woodland Springs can effectively treat with our therapy laser include, but are not limited to:
- Post-surgical pain
- Chronic medical conditions
- Hip dysplasia
- Degenerative joint disease
- Acute medical conditions
The therapy laser is not only an effective tool to utilize for pain relief; it also quickens healing time, improves tissue repair and even provides a relaxing effect for the furry patients on which it is used.If your pet is sickly, debilitated or suffers from one of the aforementioned conditions, laser therapy may be a viable option for treatment and pain management.
