Laser therapy is one of our newest technologies here at Riverside! Therapeutic lasers are Class IV lasers that emit a light energy source for tissue healing and pain reduction. The light energy penetrates deeply into damaged cells, tissue, ligaments, and muscles which accelerates healing. Our Cutting Edge MLS Laser utilizes continuous and pulse wave technology. This allows the injured area to be treated without thermal or burn injury from the laser.
Laser therapy is a quick, non-invasive, and painless method for fast and effective relief:
- Joint Pain
- Hip Dysplasia
- Wounds/ Post op
- Inflamed Ears
- Hot Spots
- And much more!
Our veterinarians will assess your pet and determine the appropriate treatment protocol necessary for your pet's individual condition. There are specific guidelines for the frequency of treatments, which may range from a single treatment to six treatments spread out over several weeks. The length of the treatment varies from 5-15 minutes depending on the number of areas being treated.
