Sports medicine physicians and chiropractors have used the therapeutic laser for many years to offer pain relief to professional and Olympic athletes. The laser also has been proven to enhance the body’s ability to heal. Now being used extensively in the veterinary field, Justin Animal Hospital is pleased to provide this treatment for your pet.
Laser therapy applied with the Companion Therapy Laser System can be used to treat many injuries, wounds, and fractures. In addition, the laser treats some neurological conditions and dermatological problems. Whether your pet is rehabilitating from trauma or injury, healing from wounds, or simply aging, your companion will benefit from this revolutionary new approach to veterinary medicine.
Instead of cutting like the focused beam laser used in surgery, the therapeutic laser’s sterile, pain-free, surgery-free, and drug-free treatment provides energy in the form of light waves. Laser treatments change cellular metabolism, increasing endorphins and relieving pain. Injured cells stimulated this way heal at a faster rate. What this means for your pet is that he or she can heal more quickly and comfortably.
Therapeutic laser treatment provides the latest technology in veterinary care for:
- Pain relief and faster healing after surgery
- Ear infections and inflammation
- Back pain
- Arthritis and degenerative joint disease
- Skin conditions such as hot spots or lick granulomas
- Snake bites and insect bites or stings
- Faster healing from traumatic injuries
The therapeutic laser has the added advantage that your pet will experience none of the potential side effects that are associated with some medications. After a surgical procedure, the therapeutic laser can reduce pain, inflammation, and swelling.
