What is Laser Therapy and how does it work?

Laser Therapy is a surgery-free, drug-free, noninvasive treatment to reduce pain, reduce inflammation and speed healing.

Class IV Deep Tissue Laser Therapy uses a beam of laser light to deeply penetrate tissue without damaging it. Laser energy induces a biological response in the cells called “photo-bio-modulation”, which leads to reduced pain, reduced inflammation, and increased healing speed.

The laser light is delivered through a noninvasive handpiece to treat the affected area. Your pet may feel a gentle and soothing warmth during treatment. Most treatments take only a matter of minutes. With laser therapy, “longer is not necessarily better”. Each treatment is dependent upon the issue and the location of the problem area.

Generally speaking, a single laser therapy treatment in middle Tennessee will cost the consumer approximately $50.00 – $65.00. Because better results are seen after multiple treatments, this per treatment cost makes laser therapy too expensive for many clients.

Dr. Anderson’s approach to animal care is to make the needed services as affordable as reasonably possible. Our team at Companion Animal Hospital seeks to “help you love your pets!”. To do this, we strive to keep our prices as reasonable as possible though it can be difficult as prices rise for medications and equipment. None the less, at least once or twice each year, Dr. Anderson offers Laser Therapy specials at significantly low prices in order to make this technology and pain reduction available to her patients.

Laser Therapy has been scientifically proven to be successful in treating post-surgical pain and many acute and chronic conditions.
