Little Critters Veterinary Hospital - Offering Therapeutic Laser Therapy
Photobiomodulation (PBM) therapy occurs when a dose of light energy reaches target tissue and results in decreased inflammation, decreased pain, and accelerated healing. This doctor-prescribed, technician-driven modality effectively treats a wide variety of conditions including pre-surgical, post-surgical, acute, and chronic disease states.
Why Treat with Laser Therapy?
Laser therapy provides you with a versatile tool that is a trustworthy adjunct to existing treatments – and can generate relief for hard-to-treat-conditions where pain and inflammation are present.
Treatments are non-invasive, drug and surgery-free and can be administered in 1-10 minutes. Clients enjoy being involved with their pet’s treatment as they see their loved one quickly relax as their pain is soothed away.
There is a vast body of research supporting the effects of photobiomodulation (PBM). For PBM to occur, a therapeutic dose of light is delivered to impaired or dysfunctional tissue, which leads to a cellular response mediated by mitochondrial mechanisms that reduce pain and inflammation and speed healing.1 There are a number of factors that can help maximize the amount of light that reaches target tissue, including: proper wavelength selection, sufficient laser power, reducing reflection off the skin, and minimizing absorption by molecules not involved in photobiomodulation.
