Highview Animal Clinic is proud to offer cold laser therapy!
Lasers are used by health care professionals around the world. Currently, medical lasers are being used routinely for a wide variety of surgical and therapeutic applications including: wound healing, post operative incision healing, veterinary procedures, dental procedures and treating pain and inflammation in a rehabilitation or pain management setting. (AIMLA)
Laser is an acronym that originally was coined to describe the process of creating laser light. It has come to be used most commonly to name both the apparatus and the light that it produces. It is Light Amplification by Stimulated Emission of Radiation. Simply defined, a laser is any device which can be made to produce or amplify electromagnetic radiation in the wavelength range from 180 nm to 1 mm, primarily by the process of controlled stimulated emission.

Cold laser helps with the treatment of pain and healing. It is a treatment that utilizes specific wavelengths of light to interact with tissue and is thought to help accelerate the healing process.
