Laser therapy is a painless, non-invasive and very safe treatment using controlled amounts of laser light in a veterinary laser to enhance the natural biological processes of healing. Laser assisted rehabilitation can be combined with other treatment modalities to reduce recovery times and enhance outcomes or can be used alone.
Laser therapy is an effective treatment for acute pain and chronic conditions, sprains and strains, arthritis, hip dysplasia, muscular, ligament and tendon injuries, swelling due to back disc problems, post-operative pain and muscular-skeletal abnormalities. It also helps to regenerate nerve tissue and reduces inflammation which in turn results in a reduction of pain.
Laser therapy can be used on it's own or it can be combined with Bowen Therapy to give effective results.
Although improvement is often seen after the first visit, your dog's condition will influence how often and long laser therapy is necessary. Treatments vary in length, but most cases require 5 to 10 minutes depending on the size of the area to be treated. Laser treatments for dogs are cumulative, so each additional treatment facilitates a greater improvement in your dog's condition. The length and frequency of treatments vary by condition, so a laser therapy schedule will be formulated specifically for your canine companion.
Laser therapy is a painless, non-invasive and very safe method of using a veterinary laser to enhance the natural biological processes of healing. Laser assisted rehabilitation can be combined with other treatment modalities or can be used on it's own to reduce recovery times and enhance outcomes by increasing cellular activity, speeding up the healing of damaged tissue and penetrates deep into the muscle tissue repairing damaged tissue, reducing inflammation and increasing circulation to promote faster healing. It also stimulates the body to release its own pain relieving endorphins so the animal feels less pain.
Laser therapy is a safe alternative for dogs for whom analgesic and anti-inflammatory medications are ineffective or produce negative side-effects. Laser therapy is a non-invasive, drug and pain free treatment.
It is also an effective option for dogs and cats that can't or won't tolerate hands-on, physical therapy.
This internationally recognised technique was developed here in Australia by Ross Emmett and is being taught and practised in over 40 Countries . It can be used as a stand alone therapy or combined with other modalities and is referred to as the "Chameleon" approach to animal therapy.
This gentle and safe neuro-muscular, muscle release technique can be used to address pain and discomfort, improve body movement and restrictions. Emmett technique is based on the belief that the brain has the ability to self -evaluate and re-calibrate using sensory receptors within the body. Using light pressure the Technique works on unique micro points within muscles and muscle groups. The technique needs to be performed with the right pressure, in the correct direction and with precise timing to achieve the best outcome. Accurate and fast assessments of imbalances in the body are an integral feature of this technique.
An EMMETT treatment improves recovery from workouts helping competition dogs achieve peak performance, along with addressing lameness, muscle restrictions, uneven gait and lack of performance.
