Class IV Laser Therapy
(aka: Therapeutic Laser)

Laser therapy is used for musculoskeletal injuries, arthritis, soft tissue injuries, wound healing, and the stimulation of nerve regeneration. On a biochemical level, the infrared light produced by the laser unit increases the production of cellular energy, which in turn promotes cellular regeneration, tissue repair, and increased circulation. Therapeutic lasers also stimulate the release of the body’s own pain killing chemicals making your pet feel more comfortable. With just one treatment, you will see your pet noticeably relax and feel better, however, for long term recovery, multiple treatments may be necessary.

That is why at Healthy Paw Rehab we organize our visits in the same fashion as a human therapy. We perform what your pet needs on that day, no matter what the modality. Since laser treatments are quick and painless, it is easy to add them into any treatment session, along with massage, stretching exercises, or any other modality. Typically, depending on the condition, laser therapy may be performed every few days for the first few weeks, then at weekly or biweekly intervals.
