Parkway Animal clinic is now offering a low cost alternative for pain management for arthritic patients, acute injuries, post surgery healing and more. The laser uses light waves to aid in the healing process, increase blood flow and decrease inflammation and pain.
How does it work?
Laser Therapy (also called Light Therapy) uses electromagnetic energy to interact chemically and biologically with the tissues causing "photobiostimulation". In a sense, the laser works on tissue the same way the sun works for a plant during photosynthesis, to stimulate the "healing cells," boost recovery, and shorten healing time. This creates an optimal healing environment that reduces inflammation, swelling, muscle spasms, stiffness, and pain.
Our laser allows us to concentrate that energy and target the specific area we are treating. Each patient has his or her own treatment plan to fit the individual need(s).
Cats are particularly sensitive to some medications, so there are fewer pain management options available for the feline patient. Laser treatment provides a safe solution for them.
Some of the advantages to using Laser Therapy are:
- Safer than most drugs with almost no side effects
- Not harmful to the liver or kidneys
- Treatments are quick and painless
- Cost efficient
- Speeds up recovery/ healing time
A new non-invasive way to manage conditions such as:
- Back and joint pain
- Sprains and strains
- Post-surgical recovery
- Intervertebral disc disease
- Injuries and wounds ( including hot spots )
- Lick granulomas
And much more
