Hurricane Animal Hospital is now offering laser therapy for pain relief and control, for wound management and for rehabilitation cases. Dr Jeffrey Shy and Michelle Fleet, RVT are excited to be expanding our services with this therapy because it can be applied and benefit so many pets with a wide range of conditions.
What is Laser Therapy?
Class IV laser therapy uses a beam of laser light to deeply penetrate tissue without damaging the tissue. Laser energy makes a biological response in the cells called "photo-bio-modulation", which leads to reduced pain, reduced inflammation, and increased healing speed to the tissue being treated. The laser is delivered through a noninvasive hand piece to treat the affected area. Pets may feel a warm, gentle sensation. Most treatments do not take more than a few minutes.
Why Laser Therapy?
A surgery free, drug free, noninvasive way to reduce pain, reduce inflammation, and increase healing time. The Class IV Therapy Laser provides wavelengths that achieve optimal cellular stimulation to enhance wound healing and penetrate deep within the tissues to encourage healing within tendons, ligaments, muscles, nerves, dermal layers, intra-articular structures and even layers of bone.
How does it work?
The Class IV Therapy Laser has a biochemical, photochemical effect on cells. These photons stimulate each individual cell to revitalize and reactivate its own healing processes through a biochemical cascade of events. It provides photons at the ideal wave lengths and in sufficient numbers over time to stimulate individual cells deep within the tissues. This stimulation provides the cell with more energy to optimize its individual role in the healing process.
What are the biological effects of Laser Therapy?
What conditions can it treat?
Laser therapy will often be used as a adjunct therapy where medication or surgery is needed but laser provides for faster healing, reduction of pain medication required, and improved prognosis or outcome. If you have questions about laser therapy or feel your pet has a condition that could be improved with laser therapy, call our office for an appointment to review the possibilities with Dr Shy, Dr Sette, or Dr Morrissette. 304-757-2287.
