Laser therapy is a non invasive therapy, frequently used to help accelerate healing. We use laser therapy in a multitude of cases and have seen first hand, the benefits of use in appropriate situations. Laser therapy can be used to the relieve pain and reduce inflammation. Laser therapy has been used for relief of arthritis in several of our patients and has shown excellent results. In addition to arthritis, we have used laser therapy for dogs with intervertebral disc disease. Patients who were previously paralyzed due to their condition have been able to regain use of their limbs with therapy and medications alone.
Laser therapy is a great modality alone or as a part of a therapy regime. It is very safe, however, is contraindicated in areas of cancer and pregnancy. Depending on the condition, one session or multiple laser sessions may be necessary for treatment or maintenance of the condition.
