What to expect
There is no patient sedation or restraint required and the experience is usually pleasant and comforting to them.
Although improvement is often seen after the first visit, most patients require several treatments (3-8) for greatest benefit. For most conditions, we recommend a multi-visit treatment plan. Treatments vary in length, but most sites require 2-8 minutes. A majority of patients exhibit greater comfort and mobility in 12-24 hours after laser treatment.
Class IV Laser Therapy treatments are cumulative in nature. The length and frequency of treatment varies with your pet’s condition, but a general treatment recommendation is outlined below:
- Week 1- 3 treatments
- Week 2- 2 treatments
- Week 3- 1 treatment
- Additional treatments dictated by pet’s comfort level.
Laser Therapeutic Effects
During each painless treatment, laser energy increases circulation, drawing water, oxygen, and nutrients to the damaged area. This creates optimal healing environment that reduces inflammation, swelling, muscle spasms, stiffness, and pain. As the injured area returns to normal, function is restored and pain is relieved.
Cellular Effects of Laser Therapy
During laser therapy the infrared laser light interacts with tissues at the cellular level, and metabolic activity increases within the cell, improving the transport of nutrients across the cell membrane. This initiates the increased production of cellular energy (ATP) that leads to a cascade of beneficial effects, increasing cellular function and health.
