Laser Therapy

Laser Therapy involves the use of red and near infrared wavelengths of light to create therapeutic effects; improve healing time following surgery, reduce pain, increase circulation and decrease swelling. Laser Therapy may also reduce the pain and discomfort of osteoarthritis, joint pain, muscle strains and ligament sprains.

Laser therapy is entirely painless

No patient sedation is required and hair clipping is seldom necessary. Although improvement may be apparent after a first visit, a sequence of treatments usually produces the best results. Individual treatments last about ten minutes.

Laser Therapy was given FDA approval in 2002 and quickly earned its way into human medicine. More recently, in spite of initial costs, Laser Therapy is increasingly being used in veterinary medicine.

MCAH utilizes Laser Therapy to reduce surgical swelling, pain, and healing time. Laser Therapy is also offered as a “stand alone” procedure for non-surgical applications.
