Is your pet slowing down? Decreased mobility is not a sign of age as many pet owners mistakenly believe, but actually a sign of pain! Chronic pain may be the result of an ongoing condition such as arthritis, an injury, or even a recent surgery, and the good news is that it can be treated!
Pain management is an issue near and dear to the hearts of the Boggy Creek Animal Hospital team. We are committed to keeping our patients feeling their best so that they can have a quality life. One of the most popular, cutting-edge pain management techniques we offer is the therapy laser.
How Does Laser Therapy Work?
At Boggy Creek Animal Hospital, we utilize the K-Laser, a state-of-the-art tool that uses photobiomodulation, or specific wavelengths of red and near-infrared light, to stimulate healing cells to relieve pain and also to eliminate the associated health problems that cause the pain. The therapeutic effects caused by laser therapy are:
- Decreased swelling
- Faster healing time
- Increased circulation
- Pain reduction
- …and more
Pets have been shown to experience results in the form of improved conditions within just a few treatments. The average is 3-4 sessions before results are apparent.
