Class V Laser Therapy
Today the go-to standard care for musculoskeletal injuries is Class IV laser therapy. It is an effective tool for animals with chronic arthritis that are having issues getting around effectively. The treatment uses a beam of laser light to penetrate tissue without damaging it. The energy causes a response in the cells that causes a reduction in pain as well as inflammation and increased healing speed. The treatment lasts about 12 minutes and is virtually pain free. It can be used in a variety of ways including: post-surgical pain, wounds, infections, cuts, bites and degenerative joint disease, hip dysplasia, feline acne, tendonitis, and inflammatory bowel disease. All of this is done without medication or major surgery.
