How is laser therapy used to treat acute and chronic pain? - Advanced Animal Care

Acute pain would be something along the lines of right after surgery or if your dog had a wound or anything like that that was initially a cut. And so we can use the laser that to run over that wound. We especially like to use it after surgery. So if your dog was spayed or neutered we can use the laser over that site to help reduce swelling and inflammation in that area and also speed up healing time a bit. When it comes to chronic wounds, we can use those the laser for things like arthritis. We can also use it for ear infections that have maybe caused the ear canal itself to become really swollen. And kind of the same concept, we're trying to decrease a lot of that inflammation that's associated with those tissues and promote overall healing and a lot healthier, normal cells to develop.
