Suffering from painful ailments or arthritis is something we do not want our pets to be going through. If they are suffering, however, laser therapy might be a solution. Murrayville Veterinary Clinic in Murrayville, Georgia, specializes in Class IV laser therapy, which is a type of phototherapy that uses a beam of light to stimulate healing from inside the body. Without using invasive treatments or drugs, fast treatment and pain relief can be received with laser therapy.
Laser therapy can be used to treat a variety of symptoms, including:
Degenerative joint disease
Post-operative and wound healing
Intervertebral Disc Disease
Laser therapy works by improving blood flow, reducing inflammation, and spurring the release of natural endorphins. Many of these conditions were treated in the past with pain medication or anti-inflammatory drugs. Prolonged use of these drugs has actually shown to have severe and long-lasting negative side effects for pets. Laser therapy is a treatment that is an effective and safe alternative to treating many diseases or common and chronic conditions, especially arthritis.
