Pet Cold Laser Therapy in Virginia Beach, VA
Virtually any disease process that involves inflammation can be helped with laser therapy. One of the most common applications of laser therapy in veterinary medicine is musculoskeletal disease and injury. The laser is effective in helping injured muscles heal more quickly, as well as improving the function of muscles that have been strained secondary to arthritis, hip dysplasia, or other injuries. Dogs recovering from orthopedic surgery benefit from laser treatment, as inflammation and pain are decreased while the circulation improves. Wounds and incisions heal more quickly when treated with the laser.
Low-level laser therapy can easily be integrated into your pet’s veterinary care. Because treatment is painless and quick, even the most nervous animal can be easily treated. In fact, many animals feel more comfortable after just a few minutes of treatment. Depending on the condition, treatments are performed every few days for the first one to two weeks, then at a weekly or biweekly interval as healing progresses. Many pets are significantly improved in as few as six treatments. Periodic follow-up treatments can help pets maintain normal function and comfort, allowing them to live with minimal pain, without drugs or invasive procedures.
