Cold Laser Therapy
LASER THERAPEUTIC EFFECTS
During each apinless treatment, laser energy increases circulation, drawing water, oxygen, and nutrients to the damaged area. This creates an optimal healing environment that reduces inflammation, swelling, muscle spasms, stiffness, and pain. As the injured area returns to normal, function is restored and pain is relieved.
DOES IT HURT? WHAT DOES A TREATMENT FEEL LIKE?
There is little or no sensation during treatment. Occasionally the patient feels mild, soothing warmth, or tingling. Areas of pain or inflammation may be sensitive briefly before pain reduction.
HOW OFTEN SHOULD A PATIENT BE TREATED?
Acute conditions may be treated daily. particularly if they are accompanied by significant pain. More chronic problems resond better when treatments are received 2 to 3 times a week, tapering to once every week or two as improvment is seen.
HOW LONG BEFORE THE RESULTS ARE FELT?
Your pet may feel improvement in their condition (usually pain reduction) after the first treatment. Sometimes they will not feel improvement for a number of treatments. This does not mean that nothing is happening. Each treatment is cumulative and results are ofter felt after 3 or 4 sessions.
