Companion Therapy Laser
Laser Therapy Available
Ina Road Animal Hospital is thrilled to announce the availability of a new treatment available for dogs and cats. Laser Therapy is an effective, proven, pain free treatment for conditions such as arthritis, joint pain, disc disease, hip dysplasia, tendonitis, wounds, and post-op pain. The new Laser painlessly relieves inflammation, speeding recovery and reducing or eliminating the need for medications that may harm the liver or kidneys.
This comfortable, safe therapy uses specific wavelengths of light that quickly reduce inflammation and swelling in tissues that are exposed to the laser. The light energy penetrates deeply into tissue and speeds up cellular reproduction and growth, bringing new blood flow to the area. As a result of exposure to the Laser, the cells of tendons, ligaments, and muscles repair themselves faster. As inflammation is reduced, pain subsides very quickly. In simple terms, laser energy kick-starts the healing process, thereby speeding recovery. There are no known negative side effects! Most patients see positive results in 1 to 3 treatments. Swelling is greatly reduced and there is rapid relief of pain and increased mobility. This is the very same breakthrough technology successfully used in human treatment.
