The laser produces specific light wavelengths and frequencies to affect a photochemical alteration of cells, which results in decreased pain, decreased edema and inflammation, and promotion of healing at the affected site.
Laser therapy is becoming increasingly widespread and is now being offered at NEAMC with our newly acquired Thor Laser system. We offer single laser treatment prices as well as package pricing, where you can purchase five treatments and receive the sixth treatment free in order to complete the recommended full course of therapy. Treatments only take a few minutes, and laser therapy offers a drug-free alternative for older patients or can act as an adjunct to other therapies without the risk of interaction.
Please call NEAMC at 508-584-1600 to learn more details of how this treatment can benefit your pet today!
