Clinical studies show that laser therapy alleviates pain and inflammation, reduces swelling, and stimulates nerve and tissue repair. It has been proven effective on such diverse conditions as arthritis, sprains and strains, periodontal disease, and infections. Some advantages of laser therapy are:
• Provides a drug-free option for enhanced care
• Effective relief of pain, inflammation, and swelling
• Extremely well tolerated by patients
• No known side effects
• May decrease the need for surgery and medications
• Reduces healing time
• Requires no sedation or clipping
Animals receiving laser therapy feel a gentle warming of the tissues, and often will relax and enjoy, much like you would experiencing a good massage. Often there is an immediate lessening of pain, and the initial anxiety that some pets may feel often disappears. Animals receiving the therapy may even fall asleep.
If you believe your animal is suffering from a condition that may treatable with laser therapy, call VVA to arrange a consultation with one of our doctors. They may be able to recommend a customized course of treatment that can help.
