Laser Therapy Treatment Options:
Class IV medical laser therapy provides a clean, painless, surgery and drug-free option to treat a variety of postoperative, injury, fracture, neurological conditions, some dermatological problems, and orthopedic or spinal pain. If your pet family member is healing from trauma or injury or merely aging, there might be a medical benefit derived from therapeutic laser treatment.
Laser therapy stimulates the body to heal from within. Light photons are administered to the body and absorbed by injured cells causing an increased rate of metabolism resulting in: improved blood and lymphatic circulation; anti-inflammatory reaction; pain relief, and accelerated healing process.
Upper Keys Veterinary Hospital has the two best Class IV laser therapy instruments: K-Laser, the Cube, and Companion Laser Therapy unit.
Laser often provides instantaneous relief. The pets relax and lean into the therapy application wand. The muscle relaxation effect, decreased inflammation and decreased swelling begins immediately.
Laser treatments are offered as single sessions or multi session packages of 3 and 6 treatments. Laser therapy is sometimes used simultaneous with acupuncture treatment by Dr. Foley. Our hospital animal care staff are certified in laser therapy safety and usage. The Upper Keys Veterinary Hospital staff can arrange for therapy sessions.
