One of the most positive features of Laser Therapy is that there are no side effects, as long as it's applied by a professional trained in the proper use of the laser and at the appropriate dosages. The lack of side effects and its efficiency make it so that, sometimes, Laser Therapy can be a great substitute to pharmaceutical interventions to reduce pain in patients with long-term, degenerative conditions.
Laser Therapy has been studied in depth and the many benefits of its use been documented extensively; to the point of laser therapy being approved by the FDA for use in humans in the US and many countries around the world.
So, you may be wondering... what conditions does Laser Therapy help with?
Laser Therapy has proven to be effective with conditions that cause pain and/or inflammation, including but not limited to:
IVDD (Intervertebral Disc Disease)
CCL tears (as well as CCL surgical repair)
Soft tissue injuries like muscle and tendon tears
And much more...
Though laser therapy can be very effective and helpful in managing the conditions mentioned above and many more, it is not intended to be a stand-alone approach to any condition. As a modality, laser therapy is meant to be yet another tool that certified canine therapists & veterinarians may use, in conjunction with other rehab methods to enhance the quality of life of your beloved dog by controlling pain & inflammation.
