Laser, Platelet-Rich Plasma and Stem Cell Therapies
THERAPEUTIC LASER TREATMENT
Laser Therapy ("Cold Laser" or "K-Laser") uses light to accelerate the body’s natural healing processes.
Laser therapy increases the speed of wound healing by altering cell metabolism and specific blood hormone and protein levels. It can be used to speed the healing rate in chronic ulcers and skin wounds.
By controlling chemicals released from cells during inflammation, we use laser therapy as an alternative to painkilling drugs which have strong analgesic and anti-inflammatory effects. It can be used for a wide range of clinical conditions from arthritis and muscle damage to skin conditions like inflamed ears.
With its pain management and wound properties it is routinely used by our practice after surgery, such as neutering and other more invasive procedures, as an effective alternative or addition to traditional painkillers. We find that it dramatically reduces pain and inflammation.
No Side Effects:
Many clients prefer the use of laser therapy compared to NSAID medication, e.g. meloxicam, as there are no side effects and the anti-inflammatory and analgesic benefits are quickly seen. This is especially important when pets need to be on long-term painkillers for conditions such as arthritis. Laser therapy is safe and compatible with other pain-relieving treatments.
