Laser Therapy

Laser Therapy

Laser therapy is a way to promote faster healing, provide pain relief, and decrease inflammation. It can also be used to perform needle-free laser acupuncture. L.A.S.E.R. means: Light Amplification by the Stimulated Emission of Radiation. The laser is used to treat a variety of injuries, wounds, fractures, neurological conditions, skin conditions, and pain. Whether your pet is rehabilitating from trauma or injury, healing from wounds, or simply aging, laser therapy has been shown to provide relief and speed healing.

At Rox Falls Vet we use Multi Radiance Super Pulsed Lasers. Multi Radiance Medical provides FDA-cleared laser therapy devices. They have the safest classification of lasers with no risk of overheating. These lasers use innovative technology to deliver light energy to the tissue, which reduces pain and increases circulation. This safe and powerful technology is applied with a cordless hand-held applicator providing targeted therapy.

Some conditions we treat with the laser:

  • Arthritis
  • Intervertebral disk disease
  • Ear infections
  • Lick granulomas
  • Anal gland abscesses
  • Injuries and lameness
  • Wounds or burns
  • After surgery for pain relief and faster healing
  • After dental extractions
