What is laser therapy?
Laser therapy involves the use of a small, handheld device which delivers a painless beam of light to areas of the body that have been affected by illness, trauma or injury. The light stimulates the body’s natural healing mechanism to help reduce pain and inflammation, improve mobility and speed the healing process following surgery or injury. The therapeutic laser offers a treatment option that is painless, drug-free and completely non-invasive, making it a favorable choice for many pet parents.
