K laser Therapy
We at the Kedron Veterinary clinic are excited to introduce the addition of a “K-Laser”. The machine offers therapeutic laser treatments for advanced pain relief and enhanced tissue/wound healing.
K-Laser Class IV therapeutic lasers deliver specific red and near-infrared wavelengths of laser light to induce a photochemical reaction and therapeutic effect.
Physiological effects include increased circulation, reduced inflammation, pain reduction and enhanced tissue healing. Laser therapy has been used in Europe since the 1970s for human medicine and now becoming an intricate part of veterinary medicine with 1 in 4 practices in America practicing laser therapy.
Laser Therapeutic Effects
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.
During K-Laser Therapy, infrared laser light interacts with tissues at the cellular level increasing metabolic activity within the cell. By improving the transport of nutrients across the cell membrane, the increased production of cellular energy (ATP) is stimulated. The cascade of beneficial effects that follows includes increased cellular function and tissue repair.
Numerous studies show Laser therapy can assist with :
* Joint pain
* Ligament sprains
* Puncture wounds
* Post surgical pain & post -orthopaedic surgical recovery
* Hip Dysplasia
* Chronic wounds
* Burns and more
We are very excited to be able to offer the very latest laser therapy technology to our patients with the K-Laser. For more information on the Laser therapy and to find out if it can benefit your pet, please do not hesitate to call us at Kedron veterinary clinic.
