Class 4 LASER Therapy

Laser therapy is a non-invasive, drug-free treatment that improves healing and relieves pain by delivering high power light energy directly into the cells, stimulating the body's metabolic processes at the cellular level, creating an upregulation effect to improve cell function and release endorphins. 

Class 4 LASER therapy is proven to be successful in treating the following (backed by research and case studies):

  • Osteoarthritis and DJD

  • Hip and elbow dysplasia

  • Tendonitis and tenosynovitis (tendons)

  • Desmitis (ligaments), cranial cruciate ligament injuries in dogs

  • Wound healing, including traumatic and post-operative

  • Sacroiliac disease/pain

  • Neurological injury and deficits, including degenerative myelopathy and IVDD in dogs

  • Spinal pain and conditions such as kissing spines

  • Muscular pain, trigger points

  • Muscular strains and tears

  • Navicular disease and laminitis

  • Fracture healing

  • Bone spavin

  • Bursitis

  • Deep tissue bruising

  • Oedema/swelling

  • Athletic recovery and performance 

As well as providing LASER therapy as an optional part of physiotherapy sessions, I also provide shorter 30-45 min canine and equine sessions which includes LASER therapy to 3-4 areas/as needed. No time off is required after treatment, and savings can be made on block bookings, making it a highly convenient part of your rehabilitation programme.

Recommended treatment frequency is completely dependant on the individual presentation and condition treated, as well as the budget available, however recommended doses are: twice weekly appointments for 1-2 weeks, then once weekly for two weeks, then two fortnightly, then once a month maintenance and as then as needed.

LASER therapy is extremely therapeutic, there is no discomfort involved and a lot of animals may fall asleep during treatment due to the gentle warming effect to the target tissue. Dogs get to wear super cute 'doggles' to protect their eyes, as well as us humans.
