Laser Therapy at CVVH
At Conejo Valley Veterinary Hospital, laser therapy is a new technology used to aid in the treatment of a variety of injuries and conditions such as wounds, dermatological conditions, and orthopedic and neurological problems. Laser therapy is an FDA-approved, sterile, and painless treatment for pets.
Laser Therapy Relieves Pain & Promotes Healing
This technique originated in Europe and Russia, where it has been used for many years. Sports medicine physicians and chiropractors now use it successfully on professional and Olympic athletes for pain relief as well as to improve their bodies’ ability to heal.
The therapeutic laser provides energy in the form of light waves that change cellular metabolism. This in turn affects the production of endorphins, relieving pain. Injured cells stimulated this way heal at a faster rate. What this means for your pet is that he or she can heal more quickly and comfortably.
Uses for Laser Therapy
We use a class Ⅳ therapy laser, which is the most effective therapy laser on the market today. Some of the many uses of laser therapy include:
- Arthritis and degenerative joint disease
- Pain relief and faster healing after surgery
- Skin infections and inflammation such as lick granulomas
- Back pain
- Open or necrotic non-healing wounds
- Faster healing from traumatic injuries
When used after a surgical procedure, our Class Ⅳ therapeutic laser reduces pain, inflammation, and swelling. It is an amazing and effective tool for pain management and arthritis.
