K laser therapy is a procedure that uses specific wavelengths of light to improve healing time, reduce pain, increase circulation, and decrease swelling. It can be used for many conditions, such as arthritis, joint pain, burns, and pain after surgery.
The K laser (also called a “cold laser”) is a revolutionary technology that works by drawing nutrients to the damaged area to create an environment that promotes healing. As the injury heals, the pain is relieved. Typically, the patient feels little or no sensation during treatment, although occasionally there is a mild, soothing warmth or tingling. There is no patient sedation or restraint required and the experience is usually pleasant and comforting to the animal.
Your pet may show improvement in their condition after the first treatment but sometimes it takes multiple treatments to see improvement. This does not mean that nothing is happening. Most patients require several treatments (3 to 8) for greatest benefit. Treatments vary in length, but most sites require two to eight minutes.
The K Laser is a drug-free, surgery-free solution that can help your pet become pain-free and improve its quality of life. Call the Northside Animal Clinic to schedule your appointment today!
