Here at Piddle Valley Vets, we have a state of the art K-Laser that can be used by our vets and nurses to provide pain-free, non-evasive treatment for a wide range of conditions for a wide range of species.
We use the K-Laser postoperatively to aid recovery after surgery, to help treat joint pain and osteoarthritis, trauma, fracture, sprains and strains.
The K-Laser can be used to treat acute and chronic conditions so some animals require one or two sessions, for example, post-operative but it can also be used longer term for chronic conditions with regular weekly or monthly sessions ongoing.
“K-LASER therapy does not treat conditions; it stimulates the body’s inherent healing mechanisms via a process called photobiomodulation. Through a combination of different wavelengths, power and frequency of laser light K-LASER is able to achieve improved healing times, pain reduction, increased circulation and decreased swelling. Laser Therapy has been utilised in human and animal medicine for many decades, however recent technical advances in laser miniaturisation has allowed laser therapy to be used for a wider range of patients.” – From the K-Laser website
