What Is Laser Therapy Used For?

Laser therapy is commonly used to treat musculoskeletal conditions and injuries, such as sprains and strains, and the resultant pain. In addition, some clinicians use it for osteoarthritis treatment and to stimulate and accelerate healing of wounds. Common applications include:

■ Chronic arthritis
■ Surgical incisions
■ Tendon and ligament injuries

According to AAHA, the main clinical benefits of laser therapy use in pets include decreased inflammation, decreased pain, and improved wound healing due to vasodilation, endorphin release, decreased inflammation, and muscle relaxation.

Why Invest in Laser Therapy Technology?

Laser therapy can be used in conjunction with or in place of medication to manage pain, inflammation, and wound healing. It represents both a new offering for practices as well as an add on service to improve procedures already offered. Technicians take the leading role in laser safety, training, client education, and record keeping.

AVG. LENGTH OF THERAPY SESSIONS:
■ 15 to 30 minutes
(Number of sessions and frequency of treatments dependent on the injury)

AVG. COST OF THERAPY:
■ $25 to $75 per session
(Depending on the length of exposure required)

Treatment can go on for several weeks. The treatment of chronic conditions may be treated weekly and often represents a new treatment offering for clinics newly entering the laser therapy market. The treatment of surgical incisions and open wounds, which often require daily treatment, allow clinics the chance to offer improved treatment of procedure already offered.

Will Laser Therapy Work at Your Practice?

In a market seeing mass spending by pet owners who prioritize their four-legged children and view them as cherished family members, ‘luxury’ and ‘add-on’ services are quickly becoming a very profitable norm. US pet owner spending has exceeded $100 billion in the last few years, with more people than ever owning pets, and these trends aren’t letting up.

Do your clients consider their pet part of the family? When considering bringing laser therapy to your clinic, you have to consider if it’s worth it – who will want this offering, and who will actually pay for this service? Many people may see laser as a luxury, but these types of services set you apart and give you a competitive edge.
