At the Animal Medical Center we use the class 4 K Laser. Lasers are classified according to their output power. A Class 4 laser has more than 500 milliwatts of power. Higher power means it can deliver more energy per unit of time – which means we can treat a very large area on your pet in just a few minutes.
Laser Therapy, is the use of specific wavelengths of light to create therapeutic effects. These effects include improved healing time, pain reduction, increased circulation and decreased swelling.
During Laser Therapy the infrared laser light interacts with tissues at the cellular level, and metabolic activity increases within the cell, improving the transport of nutrients across the cell membrane. This initiates the increased production of cellular energy (ATP) that leads to a cascade of beneficial effects, increasing cellular function and health.
During each painless treatment, laser energy increases circulation, drawing water, oxygen, and nutrients to the damaged area. This creates an optimal healing environment that reduces inflammation, swelling, muscle spasms, stiffness, and pain. As the injured area returns to normal, function is restored and pain is relieved.
Common Injuries treated with Laser Therapy:
- Ear infections
- Hot Spots
- Back Pain
- Soft tissue injury
Shockwave therapy is offered by The Animal Medical Center in collaboration with Equine Sport Solutions, our equine sports medicine service. Although most commonly used in our equine patients, we are starting to perform this treatment in our small animal patients as well.
A shock wave is an acoustic (pressure) wave that aims at a specific point within a tissue. The original use of shock waves was in humans to fragment uroliths (kidney stones), and then was expanded to orthopedic applications to stimulate non-union fractures and tendons/ligaments to heal. We are currently using this treatment modality for the following conditions.
- Tendon and ligament injuries: accelerating and improving the healing process
- Wound Healing: antibacterial properties facilitate healing of chronic wounds
- Bone Healing: accelerating healing and improving bone density
- Osteoarthritis/Degenerative Joint Disease: Alleviating pain/ inflammation and slowing the disease process
Depending on the type and severity of the condition, we recommend a total of three consecutive treatments at 3-4 week intervals.
