How Often Should a Patient be Treated?
Acute conditions may be treated daily, particularly if they are accompanied by significant pain. More chronic problems respond better when treatments are received 2 to 3 times a week, tapering to once ever week or two as improvement is seen.
How Many Treatments Does it Take?
This depends on the nature of the condition being treated. For some acute conditions, 1-2 treatments may be sufficient. Those of a more chronic nature may require 5 to 8 (or more) treatments. Some conditions require ongoing periodic care to control pain.
How Long Before the Results are Felt?
Your pet may feel improvement in their condition (usually pain reduction) after the first treatment. Sometimes they will not feel improvement for a number of treatments. This does not mean that nothing is happening! Each treatment is cumulative and results are often felt after 3 or 4 sessions.
Can it be Used in Conjunction with Other Forms of Treatment?
Yes! Laser Therapy is often used with other forms of therapy, including physical therapy, chiropractic adjustments, massage, soft tissue mobilization, electrotherapy and following surgery. Other healing modalities are complementary and can be used with laser to increase the effectiveness of the treatment.
Does it Hurt? What Does a Treatment Feel Like?
There is little to no sensation during treatment. Occasionally, the patient feels mild, soothing warmth, or tingling. Areas of pain or inflammation may be sensitive briefly before pain reduction.
Are There Any Side Effects or Associated Risks?
During more than twenty years of use by healthcare providers all over the world, very few side effects have ever been reported. Occasionally, some old injuries or pain syndromes may feel aggravated for a few days, as the healing response is more active after treatment.
How Long Does Each Treatment Take?
The typical treatment is 3 to 8 minutes, depending on the size of the area being treated.
