K-Laser Class IV therapeutic Pet Treatments
NLVC is proud to offer K-Laser Class IV therapeutic laser treatments for advanced pain relief and enhanced tissue healing for your pet. We are very excited to offer these treatments to our patients. Laser Therapy has been widely utilized in Europe by physical therapists, nurses and doctors as far back as the 1970’s. Now, after FDA clearance in 2002, Laser Therapy is being used extensively in the United States. Acceptance has been rapid in human rehabilitation and is quickly on the rise in veterinary medicine.
With Laser Therapy we can help many more patients than we could before, in a safe, effective and drug-free manner. It is very exciting to help our patients get the results they want, and with virtually no side effects. We can treat Lick Granulomas, Stomatitis, Bug and Spider Bites, Acute and Chronic Intervertebral disc disease, Fractures, Tendonitis, Extractions, Arthritis, Rhinitis and Sinusitis, Sprains/Strains, Otitis (ear infections), Post-surgical incisions, Cystitis (bladder inflammation), Hip Dysplasia, Hot Spots, and Trauma.
Many therapeutic lasers being used to this point were Class III, since their power output was under 500 milliwatts. The K-Laser Class IV Therapeutic Laser delivers up to 12,000 milliwatts of therapeutic laser energy. It is the only Class IV therapy laser with wavelength selectability, intense superpulse, and multiple therapy presets. The higher power of Class IV therapy lasers delivers a therapeutic dosage of laser energy to a larger volume of tissue, thus producing more immediate and significant results.
Laser therapy works by stimulating production of cellular energy in damaged cells and by enhancing the cell membrane permeability. This promotes the speed and the quality of healing, enhances the exchange of nutrients and wastes across the cell membrane and improves elasticity of injured tissues. Laser therapy also modulates pain and reduces inflammation. It can be used immediately on acute injuries, over broken skin and over metal implants. Laser therapy enhances the rate and quality of healing of acute injuries, and can help with the resolution of chronic complaints such as arthritis.
The K-Laser is being used in the very best Veterinary clinics across the country. We are very pleased to offer the latest laser therapy technology to our patients with the K-Laser.
