At Animal Wellness Center of Pontiac, we are constantly striving to provide our patients with the best and latest in treatment and care, so we provide laser therapy using a Companion Animal Class IV Therapeutic Laser. Therapeutic Lasers have been proven in clinical studies to help alleviate pain and inflammation, reduce swelling, and stimulate nerve regeneration and cells involved in tissue repair.
Therapeutic Lasers work by emitting a wavelength of light which penetrates deep into the tissues. This stimulates the tissue at the cellular level. Depending on the cell type, this in turn will cause: pain relief, reduction of inflammation, accelerated tissue repair and cell growth, improved circulation, reduced scar tissue, improved nerve function, accelerated wound healing, increased immune response and will stimulate acupuncture and trigger points.
The best news about Laser Therapy is that there are no side effects; it is non-painful and non-invasive. In some cases Laser Therapy may decrease or even eliminate the need for daily medication.
Some areas in which we will be using Laser Therapy are: Osteoarthritis, hip and elbow dysplasia, degenerative joint disease, skin disorders, acute and chronic ear infections, post operative healing, wound healing, snakebites, and after tooth extractions. As you can see, the possibilities are endless.
If you are interested in this treatment modality for your pet and want more information, you are welcome to give us a call at Animal Wellness Center of Pontiac, or visit the website for Companion Therapy Laser.
