Laser Therapy

Laser therapy (also known as Photobiomodulation therapy, or PBM) is a non-invasive therapeutic option that uses light to reach target tissue and has the potential to provide immediate results. Bowdon Animal Hospital may use laser therapy to promote healing in a variety of common conditions, including muscular pain, osteoarthritis, postoperative pain from incisions and wounds, and the majority of musculoskeletal pain situations.

What is veterinary laser therapy?

Laser therapy is a non-invasive, painless treatment that stimulates the body’s natural healing and pain control mechanisms. It can be used as a stand-alone therapy or in conjunction with other forms of treatment. Our veterinary team uses a small, handheld device to apply a low-level laser to the affected area, stimulating normal cellular function. This leads to faster wound healing and better pain relief. The best part is that because laser therapy does not require medication or surgery, there are no negative side effects.

The laser uses painless light waves to treat areas of the body that are in pain or have been traumatised. This causes a natural response, eliminating the need for medication or other invasive measures. As a result, your loved one will experience less pain, increased mobility, and shorter recovery times. Because each pet is unique, so are their responses to laser therapy. Treatment strategies will differ depending on your loved one’s specific condition, severity, and other determining factors. Some patients see positive results after just one session. Others may necessitate a longer-term strategy to achieve the desired result. We will provide you with an individual treatment recommendation after we have evaluated your companion’s situation.
