Frequent Laser Therapy Q&A:
How does laser therapy work?
The laser beam stimulates the cells and tissue to be healthy. It also reduces inflammation so that healing can begin. By reducing inflammation, the laser is also a great tool for helping to minimize the pain of many chronic conditions, like arthritis.
What will my animal feel when receiving the laser treatments?
Laser therapy is a painless application of healing light. Your animal might feel a slight tingling as the light enters the tissue and cells, but it is very minimal if at all.
How long will each treatment take?
The treatment time depends on how chronic the condition is and the depth the laser light needs to reach to be effective. However, almost all treatments will be between two and ten minutes.
How many treatments will my animal need?
The number of treatments can vary greatly based on the condition, but many pet owners notice a positive difference within three or four treatments.
What is the cost of the treatments?
Talk to your veterinary staff as cost can vary depending on whether you purchase a package of multiple treatments, or prefer to pay per treatment.
Are the results guaranteed?
We are not able to guarantee the results on every animal. However, laser therapy has been proven to be effective in clinical studies and in both human medical and veterinary medical rehab settings. There is over thirty years of research to support the efficacy of this holistic treatment.
