Traditional medicine is invaluable, but sometimes other techniques are worth pursuing.
Are you interested in a drug-free, surgery-free alternative to pain relief for your pet? At CareFirst Animal Hospital we are excited to offer Laser Therapy as a noninvasive treatment to reduce pain, reduce inflammation, and increase speed of healing.
Laser Therapy uses a beam of laser light to deeply penetrate tissue and induce a biological response in cells called “photo-bio-modulation,” causing the body to increase localized self-healing through an increase in cellular ATP (Adenosine-triphosphate).
This non-invasive, painless process leads to reduced pain, reduced inflammation, and increased healing speed, with no surgery required!
Physical therapy can be just as effective for dogs as it is for humans. CareFirst Animal Hospital uses many effective techniques in order to promote healing, relieve pain and help with recovery for musculoskeletal injuries.
Results can often be rapid, and many dogs will be exhibiting improvement after a single visit. Typically, however, most dogs reach full recovery in a two- to four-month period. The more you work one-on-one with your dog outside of the therapist’s office, the more dramatic your results will be.Ask a CareFirst Animal Hospital veterinarian whether physical therapy is right for your dog »
