Therapeutic Laser Therapy

Laser Therapy

The Grady Cold Laser Therapy provides a sterile, pain-free, surgery- free, drug-free pain management treatment. This treatment modality is useful for both acute pain, such as during recovery from a surgical procedure, and long-term suffering from chronic conditions, such as arthritis. Whether rehabilitating from trauma or injury, healing from wounds, or simply aging, your animal companion can benefit from this revolutionary new approach to pain management.

Veterinary therapeutic lasers are effective in treating osteoarthritis, hip dysplasia, IVDD, anal fistula, chronic pain and inflammation, and just about anything ending in “itis”. Laser therapy is also effective variety of injuries, infection, open wounds/wounds, fractures, lick granulomas, post-surgical incisions, neurological conditions, and dermatological problems in many species.

The Science behind Laser Therapy

Laser therapy is the only course of treatment that actually stimulates the body to heal from within. Non-thermal photons of light are administered to the body and absorbed by the injured cells. The cells are then stimulated and respond with a higher rate of metabolism. This increased circulation, an anti-inflammatory reaction, offers relief from pain and an acceleration of the healing process.

When a high power laser light beam is directed at damaged tissue the photons within the laser beam are absorbed by structures within the cells that transmit a message to increase the production of cellular energy. This energy is in the form of ATP, a cellular fuel that provides each cell with the tools it needs to repair itself. The more ATP produced the more rapid transport of nutrients into cells, the more rapid excretion of waste from these cells and the more rapid regeneration of cells is observed. This enables a much faster return to normal behavior for the tissue involved and therefore a recovery process that takes less time and alleviates the pain and inflammation your pet experiences.

If your pet is suffering from such concerns, contact our clinic for a consultation.
