Drug Free, Surgery Free, Pain Free
K-Laser Class IV therapeutic lasers deliver specific red and near-infrared wavelengths of laser light to induce a photochemical reaction and therapeutic effect. Physiological effects include increased circulation, reduced inflammation, pain reduction and enhanced tissue healing. Laser therapy has been used in Europe since the 1970s and was cleared by the United States Food and Drug Administration (FDA) in 2005.
Studies show Laser Therapy helps reduce pain associated with these common veterinary conditions:
- Joint Pain
- Edema and Congestion
- Ligament Sprains
- Muscle Strain
- Puncture Wounds
- Post-Traumatic Injury
- Post-Surgical Pain
- Neck and Back Pain
- Hip Dysplasia
- Chronic Wounds
- Post-Orthopedic Surgical Recovery
The painless application of laser energy promotes increased circulation by drawing oxygen and nutrients to the affected area. This creates an optimal healing environment reducing inflammation, swelling, muscle spasm, stiffness and pain. As the injured area returns to normal, pain is relieved and function is restored.
During treatment, infrared laser light interacts with tissues at the cellular level. Increased metabolic activity within the cell stimulates the transport of nutrients across the cell membrane initiation increased production of cellular energy (ATP). This leads to a cascade of beneficial events promoting the acceleration of the healing process and reduced pain.
Reintroduction to Activity
While your pet may exhibit renewed energy after the first treatment, consult the veterinarian before your pet returns to full activity. A gradual introduction of activity may be suggested to ensure the patient does not aggravate the condition.
What to Expect
There is no patient sedation or restraint required and the experience is usually pleasant and comforting to them. K-Laser Therapy treatments are cumulative in nature. The length and frequency of treatments varies with your pet’s condition. Even though improvement may be seen after the first visit, most patients require several treatment (3 to 8) for greatest benefit, and we recommend a multi-visit treatment plan. Most sites require 3 to 8 minutes per treatment.
A sample treatment schedule is as follows:
- Every other day for one week (3 total)
- Twice the second week (2 total)
- Once the third week (1 total)
- Boosters as needed
The veterinarian will recommend a treatment plan specific to your pet’s condition.
