Laser stands for light amplification by stimulated emission of radiation. Cold or low level laser therapy (LLLT), gained FDA approval in 2002. Here at Animal Health Center we firmly believe in Therapeutic Laser on all our small and large animal patients. The laser has shown remarkable improvement in the health of our patients with quicker recovery and no side effects. Benefits include intense anti-inflammatory and anti-edemic effects and also strong analgesic effect.
Lasers can reduce pain in several ways. The anti-inflammatory effects of the laser treatments are similar to pharmacologic agents. Lasers also can control pain by reducing oxidative stress, improving angiogenesis and augmenting collagen synthesis and skeletal repair.
When using the laser on some patients, the positive effect can be seen immediately. On more severe cases and depending on the type of injury, it may take a few treatments before noticing improvement. The Therapeutic Laser can treat a wide variety of things from chronic joint disorders, wounds, peripheral nerve injuries, muscle sprangs and even surgical incisions to promote faster healing.
