Manage pain. Reduce inflammation. Speed Recovery
Angel Oak Animal Hospital performs cold laser therapy for many conditions in pets, particularly those with arthritis. Laser therapy uses wavelengths of light at certain frequencies to accelerate the body’s natural healing processes. The laser beam is moved over the skin so that the light energy penetrates the tissue where it interacts with various molecules that cause different biological effects. It provides anti-inflammatory and analgesic benefits for a host of conditions.
The benefits of laser therapy are a marked improvement in a patient’s quality of life, and most notably in the reduction of pain and swelling and the increase in mobility.
