Class IV lasers are the highest class of medical laser and are used in both human and veterinary medicine to treat a wide range of conditions.
They emit infrared wavelengths of energy which can be adjusted to target difference depths of tissue. When they are absorbed by cells, they increase the energy inside them, which results in reduced inflammation, reduced nerve perception of pain and an increase in local blood flow which speeds healing.
Laser therapy is a safe, drug free treatment which is comfortable and non-invasive for your pet to receive. Animals are awake during the treatment and you can stay with them whilst it is given.
There are many uses for the laser but we most commonly use it for:
- Treatment of osteoarthritis
- Treatment of musculoskeletal injuries
- Encouraging healing of wounds
