Introducing Laser Therapy for Your Pet!
January 15th, 2013
We are excited to announce laser therapy for your pet!Laser therapy is a surgery-free, drug-free, noninvasive treatment that can help reduce pain and inflammation, and speed up the body's natural healing processes. The beneficial effects of laser therapy were recognized forty years ago, with strong case studies supporting the healing power of laser treatment. Today, many sports teams, such as the Duke basketball team, use laser therapy to help with injuries and chronic pain. Thanks to advances in technology, Colony Park is proud to bring the same therapy to your pet.
How does laser therapy work?Laser therapy uses a beam of laser light to penetrate tissue without causing damage. The laser energy causes a biological response in cells called "photo-bio-modulation" which leads to reduced pain and inflammation, and increased healing speed. Through the use of a noninvasive hand-piece, the laser light is delivered by gently moving over affected areas. Your pet may feel gentle warmth from the hand-piece, which may be soothing to them. Most treatments only take a few minutes to complete. Depending on the protocol your veterinarian decides upon, you may begin to see results in as little as 2 to 3 treatments.
What conditions can laser therapy be used for?Laser therapy has been scientifically proven to be successful in treating post-surgical pain, as well as many acute and chronic conditions.
