Laser Therapy

Laser Therapy

Laser therapy is the use of laser light to stimulate biological processes that lead to faster healing and pain relief.

Lasers used for therapy use much less power than surgical lasers, and the beneficial effects come not from heat, but from the stimulation of the body’s natural healing processes. Like plants absorbing sunlight through photosynthesis, the cells in the body absorb the laser’s energy, which stimulates the body to release its own pain relieving and anti-inflammatory chemical compounds.

The veterinarians at Iowa Veterinary Wellness Center utilize laser therapy for a myriad of applications:

  • Post-surgical management
  • Wound healing
  • Lick granulomas
  • Neurologic injury
  • Stomatitis
  • Muscle tears
  • Tendon and ligament tears
  • Trauma and bruising
  • Intervertebral disc disease
  • Arthritis
  • Dental procedures

Any condition that causes swelling and pain can be treated with laser therapy! Please call us for more information about our laser therapy services, or to schedule an appointment for a laser therapy consultation.
