Laser Therapy

Laser therapy is a therapeutic treatment that utilizes light energy to stimulate tissue repair and provide pain relief. This technology uses pulsed emissions to relieve pain and continuous emissions to boost circulation and reduce inflammation.

What is Laser Therapy?
Laser therapy is a therapeutic treatment that uses light energy (photons) for tissue healing and pain reduction. Until now, there have been only pulsed light lasers that control swelling and continuous light lasers that control pain, but not both.

How does the MLS Laser work?
The area to be treated is carefully identified and MLS Laser Therapy is applied in a rhythmic manner. The dual action and precise synchronization of pulsed and continuous laser emissions work at the cellular level and strengthen the therapeutic effect. MLS Laser Therapy promotes healing and quickly brings cells back to an optimal condition.

Are there side effects?
There are no known side effects. In human medicine, patients have stated they feel a comfortable warm sensation in the area being treated; but generally patients don’t feel the laser. There is no pain, heat, redness or swelling during or after treatment.

Will the laser hurt my pet’s eyes?
No. Protective eye wear is worn by the patient and therapist operating the laser, as well as anyone else in the treatment room.

How long does it take to work?
Some patients notice improvement after the very first treatment session; with others it may take a few treatments. The effect of laser therapy is cumulative, meaning that each successive treatment builds on previous ones.

Who should not have laser therapy?
Laser Therapy cannot be given directly over an area within 48 hours after cortisone injection, over an area with cancer and over the abdomen of pregnant females.

What kind of laser are you using?
This type of laser is a state of the art Class IV Infrared Cold Laser.
