Discover the healing power of our laser
The Elkhorn Animal Hospital is pleased to offer our clients’ pets laser treatments for advanced pain relief and enhanced tissue healing. With laser therapy, we can now help more pets than we could before in a safe, effective, and drug-free manner.
Laser therapy has been found to be beneficial for a variety of conditions, such as arthritis, ear infections, soft tissue injuries, and disc disease, just to list a few. It has also been shown to speed the healing process and reduce pain for surgical incisions, open wounds (hot spots), and trauma related injuries.
Benefits of laser therapy
Laser therapy works by stimulating production of cellular energy in damaged cells and by enhancing the cell membrane permeability. This promotes the speed and quality of healing, enhances the exchange of nutrients and wastes across the cell membrane, and improves elasticity of injured tissues.
How does laser therapy work?
Laser therapy also modulates pain and reduces inflammation. Laser therapy enhances the rate and quality of healing for acute injuries and can help with the resolution of chronic complaints, such as arthritis.
