Laser Therapy

MLS Class 4 Laser Therapy is used extensively to treat a wide range of inflammatory and painful conditions, as well as stimulate wound healing in companion animals, horses and exotics.
Class 4 laser therapy is seen as an effective alternative to NSAIDs (for example Metacam, Previcox, Onsior) reducing pain and inflammation quickly, by significantly decreasing COX 2 inflammatory mediators, stimulating tissue perfusion and metabolism.

Laser treatment can help with:

  • Osteoarthritis
  • Sprains / strains
  • Fractures
  • Inflammation
  • Wounds
  • Post-op dental treatment
  • Superficial dermatitis

And in addition, for horses:

  •  Osteoarthritis
  • Back pain
  • Exertional rhabdomyolysis
  • Bursitis / Synovitis
  • Navicular disease
  • Splint reduction
  • Abscesses / haematomas
  • Acute laminitis
  • Sacroiliac subluxation
  • Tendonitis / Desmitis
  • Post surgical swelling

The laser unit is mobile so treatment at yards is available.
Laser therapy is highly effective by itself but is particularly beneficial when used in conjunction with physio, hydrotherapy and a prescribed home exercise plan.
