The therapy laser is a tool that we greatly value here at Animal Medical Hospital and use on a daily basis. It works by way of low intensity light emissions close to the surface of the skin that penetrate through the tissue layers. During a therapy laser session, the cells at the affected site absorb the light at a frequency that increases the metabolism. This causes them to divide and regenerate much more quickly, repairing tissue.
We use the therapy laser on the following conditions:
- Soft tissue trauma, including surgery
- Acute and chronic pain
- Hot spots and other infections
Aside from alleviating pain, therapy lasers also help to shorten recovery time so your pet will be back to normal in no time!
