K-Laser Therapy is a drug free, surgery free, and pain free option! Laser Therapy uses specific wavelengths of light to create therapeutic effects. These effects include improved healing time, pain reduction, increased circulation and decreased swelling. Numerous studies show that Laser Therapy can help with osteoarthritis, joint pain, muscle and ligament strains, post-surgical pain, hip dysplasia, wounds, and much more.
There is little to no sensation during treatment. Occasionally the patient feels a mild, soothing warmth, or tingling. The typical treatment is 3 to 8 minutes, depending on the size of the area being treated.
Acute conditions may be treated daily, particularly if they are accompanied by significant pain. More chronic problems respond better when treatments are received 2 to 3 times per week, tapering to once every week or two as improvement is seen.
Your pet may feel improvement in their condition after the first treatment. Sometimes they will not feel improvements for a number of treatments. This does not mean that nothing is happening. Each treatment is cumulative and results are often felt after 3 or 4 sessions.
Laser Therapy is often used with other forms of therapy, including physical therapy, chiropractic adjustments, massage, and medications.
