Therapeutic laser, also referred to as photobiomodulation, is one of our regularly used modalities for both acute and chronic musculo-skeletal injury, surgical cases, pain and wounds. We have a Class 4 laser which is specifically developed for veterinary physiotherapists and veterinarians as well as a Class 3B laser and a Class 3R laser for certain cases.
The lasers are categorised according to power output. Correctly used, laser therapy is very effective for reducing pain, improving the quality of tissue healing and regeneration, reduces swelling and inflammation, improves elasticity and tensile strength and appears to accelerate the healing process. More recent research shows that it may assist in reducing muscle fatigue.
