For a limited time, Averill Animal Hospital is offering a free K-Laser treatment to our patients!
If your pet is suffering from arthritis, back pain, chronic pain, wounds, lick granulomas, or any other discomfort, this is the perfect time to take advantage of this offer.
K-Laser Therapy is an FDA-cleared therapeutic treatment that manages pain and inflammation while accelerating tissue regeneration. Laser energy increases circulation, drawing water, oxygen, and nutrients to the damaged area. This creates an optimal healing environment that reduces inflammation, swelling, muscle spasm, stiffness, and pain.
During K-Laser Therapy, infrared laser light interacts with tissues at the cellular level increasing metabolic activity within the cell. By improving the transport of nutrients across the cell membrane, the increased production of cellular energy (ATP) is stimulated. The cascade of beneficial effects that follows includes increased cellular function and tissue repair.
Commonly Asked Questions
How long before the results are felt? Your pet may feel improvement in its condition (usually pain reduction) after the very first treatment. Sometimes they will not feel improvement for a number of treatments. This does not mean that the condition is not improving. Each treatment is cumulative and results are often felt after 3 or 4 sessions.
Can laser therapy be used in conjunction with other forms of treatment? Yes. Laser therapy is often used with other forms of treatment, including physical therapy, chiropractic, massage, soft tissue mobilization, electrotherapy and even following surgery. Other healing modalities are complementary and can be used with laser to increase the effectiveness of the treatment.
Does laser therapy hurt? What does a treatment feel like? There is little or no sensation during treatment. Occasionally one feels a mild, soothing warmth or tingling. Areas of pain or inflammation may be sensitive briefly before pain reduction.
Are there any side effects or associated risks? During more than twenty years of use by healthcare providers all over the world, very few side effects have ever been reported. Occasionally some old injuries or pain syndromes may feel aggravated for a few days, as the healing response is more active after treatment.
How long does each treatment take? The typical treatment is 4 to 8 minutes, depending on the size of the area being treated.
