Therapeutic Laser Therapy
LASER THERAPY is an advanced modality for the treatment
of Inflammatory or Painful conditions in dogs.
Indications for Laser Therapy
The most common Laser Therapy indications are:
- Arthritis (Degenerative Joint Disease)
- Back Pain (Intervertebral Disc Disease)
- Trauma (Skin, Muscle, Bone)
- Wounds (Trauma)
- Surgery (Incisions, Growth Removals, Bone Surgery)
- Inflammatory Conditions:
- Acute or chronic otitis (Ear problems)
- Anal Gland inflammation
- Periodontitis (Gingivitis)
- Hot Spots
- Lick Granulomas
- Idiopathic Cystitis - (Bladder Inflammation)
- Sinusitis, Rhinitis (Nasal problems)
What is Laser Therapy?
There are basically two types of laser therapy units: Continuous and Pulsed Lasers. Continuous Laser emissions act fast on inflammation, stimulating blood and lymphatic circulation, and inducing fast reabsorption of fluid build-ups; however, they only have a secondary effect on pain, which is diminished after reducing the inflammatory process. Pulsed Laser emissions, on the other hand, have an immediate effect on pain, since they are able to produce analgesia, interfering with the very transmission of the pain impulse to the higher brain centers, but they are less effective at treating inflammation and edema, only achieving results after a long period of application. Until now, no diode laser was able to induce strong anti-inflammatory, anti-edema, and analgesic effects simultaneously and within a short period of time.
The MLS Therapy Laser was developed to overcome the limits of traditional Laser therapy. The MLS Therapy Laser is able to overcome the limits imposed by selecting one of the two emission types, since it is based on the characteristic therapeutic properties of a new Laser Pulse. It uses an MLS Pulse, which combines and synchronizes emission of continuous and pulsed Laser emissions with different infrared wavelengths. This patented control system synchronizes the two emissions and shortens the treatment period for treating pain, inflammation, and edema, and for repairing superficial lesions.
MLS Therapy Laser
Conventional Laser therapy has been in use for more than 25 years. More than 3,000 scientific publications have been written validating its effectiveness. It has been demonstrated to be non-toxic and to have no side effects.
