Pet Laser Therapy in Raleigh
Therapeutic laser, which is sometimes know as cold laser, is the process that uses low- level laser therapy of light energy to stimulate tissue repair and pain management. The focused light of various wavelengths, stimulate the tissue at and below the surface of the skin of your pet. This therapy affects tissues at the cellular level, which leads to increased metabolism of the treated cells, which improves circulation, which decreases the healing time. It also helps decrease inflammation, while improving the release of endorphins, the body’s natural pain relievers.
Laser therapy treatment for pets has been very successful in treating post-surgical procedures, pain management, soft tissue injuries, and arthritis.
Treatment sessions vary in time, and are determined based on protocols that are unique to each pet and condition. We may recommend laser therapy to be used in conjunction with other treatment, when we feel it will improve the outcome, or increase the recovery time.
