What is Class 4 Laser?
A Class 4 laser is a therapeutic tool used for treating animals that offers:
Deep tissue penetration: Higher power output allows for treatment of deeper structures, such as muscles, tendons, and joints.
Faster treatment times: Increased energy delivery enables shorter therapy sessions while maintaining effectiveness.
Pain relief: Reduces inflammation and stimulates endorphins to provide pain relief for acute and chronic conditions.
Accelerated healing: Promotes cellular repair and regeneration, leading to faster recovery times.
Non-invasive treatment: Safe, painless, and drug-free therapy option suitable for various conditions and injuries.
At RehabVet Clinic, we utilise Class 4 lasers to provide effective, state-of-the-art care for your beloved pets.
What specific conditions can a class 4 laser treat in animals?
Class 4 lasers can treat various conditions in animals, including:
Arthritis: Reducing inflammation and pain in affected joints.
Soft tissue injuries: Accelerating healing of sprains, strains, and muscle tears.
Tendonitis: Alleviating pain and inflammation in tendons.
Wound healing: Promoting faster recovery in surgical incisions, cuts, and abrasions.
Post-operative care: Enhancing healing and reducing pain after orthopaedic or soft tissue surgeries.
Nerve injuries: Supporting nerve regeneration and reducing associated discomfort.
Skin conditions: Treating issues such as hot spots, lick granulomas, and dermatitis.
Does a class 4 laser provide long-term benefits for animals?
Lasting pain relief: Alleviating chronic pain by reducing inflammation and promoting endorphin release.
Enhanced mobility: Improving joint function and flexibility through ongoing treatments.
Sustained healing: Accelerating tissue repair and regeneration, leading to long-term recovery.
Reduced reliance on medication: Potentially decreasing the need for painkillers and anti-inflammatory drugs.
Preventive care: Regular laser treatments can help manage chronic conditions, reducing the risk of complications.
How long does a class 4 laser treatment typically take?
Class 4 laser treatment duration typically depends on factors such as the condition being treated and the size of the treatment area. However, some general points include:
Faster treatment times: Due to the higher power output, Class 4 laser therapy sessions are generally quicker than those using lower-powered lasers.
Varying durations: Treatment sessions may range from 5 to 20 minutes, depending on the complexity and severity of the condition.
Ongoing therapy: Multiple treatment sessions are often required, with a frequency determined by the pet’s individual needs and progress.
At RehabVet Clinic, our therapists tailor each laser therapy session to provide optimal care for your pets.
