Laser Therapy at Toll Barn Vets
At Toll Barn Vets we believe in constantly providing the highest standard of care for our patients
by utilising cutting edge technology to reduce reliance on medication and speed recovery. This
is particularly beneficial for chronic conditions and significantly improves our pets’ quality of life.
As part of this commitment we offer our patients Laser Therapy which reduces inflammation
and provides pain relief. It is effective at treating acute and chronic pain as well as improving wound healing. It is most frequently performed in contact with the area being treated, however,
for nervous patients it can be used without contact with the body and can also be applied to acupuncture points to achieve similar responses to traditional acupuncture without requiring application of needles.
Laser therapy is safe, painless and fast with most sessions taking 5-10 minutes per area of treatment and most patients show significant improvement after 3-5 treatment sessions.
Laser therapy stimulates the body’s own healing powers by stimulating cellular activity which reduces inflammation, provides pain relief, stimulates nerve regeneration and improves tissue repair often leading to a reduction in requirement for medication and reduced healing times.
Laser therapy often forms part of the treatment for
degenerative joint disease (eg hip and elbow dysplasia)
intervertebral disc disease (spinal pain)
post operative wound healing
sprains and strains
treatment of orthopaedic disease (eg cruciate ligament rupture)
We are one of the few centres within East Anglia to have a Laser suitable to perform these treatments and are happy to discuss the suitability of laser therapy as part of your pets care.
