LASER IN VETERINARY

The Science

  • The MEDI LAZER X Series by MEDI LAZER delivers specific red and near-infrared wavelengths of laser light to induce a photochemical reaction and therapeutic effect. Physiological effects of photobiomodulation include increased circulation, reduced inflammation, pain reduction and enhanced tissue healing. Class IV therapy lasers have been used in Europe since the 1970s and were cleared by the United States Food and Drug Administration (FDA) in 2005.

Discover how the X Series gets the best results using the world's most advanced scientific research.

BENEFITS OF PAIN MANAGMENT

“Pain” is a perception that the brain creates from input called “nociception” (pronounced no-si-sep-tion). This is the physiology term to describe the chemical processes that are at work in the body that receive a stimulus, modify it, and transfer it to the brain for interpretation and reaction. The stimulus can be physical, temperature, chemical or inflammatory damage to tissues. The brain processes this nociceptive input, mixes it with other data, and creates the perception we call pain. Everyone’s pain perception and reaction to it may be different.

Not all pain is bad—pain lets us know that something may be harming our bodies that we need to stop. But “pathologic pain” is a type of pain that is no longer serving this helpful purpose. Most of the pain issues we are likely to encounter with our pets in the medical situation are examples of pathologic pain.



What Are the Pros of Using a Laser in veterinary?



Compared to the traditional pain managment drung laser benefits are:

  • May cause less pain in some instances, so reduces the need for anesthesia.
  • May reduce anxiety in pet owners uncomfortable with the use of drugs.
  • Minimize bleeding and swelling during soft tissue treatments.
  • May preserve more healthy and faster healing process.
