A non-invasive, drug-free, complete laser therapy approach to care

The use and understanding of laser therapy, has evolved significantly over the past decade. Today’s devices offer new opportunities for laser therapy to play a larger role in the continuum of care system (CoCS), moving beyond analgesia, and to areas such as dermatology, dental care, and perioperative support.

Laser therapy, commonly called photobiomodulation, is a non-thermal process that utilizes light to stimulate photo-physical events within the body. This technology supports a multi-modal approach to pain management, tissue healing, and the long-term management of chronic conditions.

Clinical goals, condition, patient size, and colour determine treatment parameters. This “photoceutical” approach to care is non-invasive and drug-free. Clinical studies validate photoceuticals, which use light in a specific dose to produce safe, reproducible outcomes.

A Complete Approach to Pain Relief, Tissue Healing, and Long-Term Care

There is an expanding role and argument for multiple lasers able to deliver high power and super-pulsed laser energy, both in the clinic and at home, to expand the continuum of care. This mix-and-match concept extends to laser therapy in a unique way. Until recently, it was believed a single laser worked for everything.

In general, most devices are designed to promote pain control. However, not all work at the same level of analgesia, and newer technologies can promote anti-inflammatory effects, accelerate tissue healing, and provide antimicrobial effects.

There are different goals for your patients at each stage of care.

1. Relieve Pain: Treatment protocols employ higher power to block pain and prime patients for tissue healing. Protocols are designed to treat large areas to address the source and referral sites of pain.

2. Heal Tissue: After the pain is under control, targeted treatments support tissue healing. Treatment protocols are highly targeted at the source of tissue dysfunction for cellular repair.

3. Maintain Relief: After short-term resolution is achieved, chronic conditions require on-going treatment. Simple treatment programs address the target area for long-term relief.

The right tool in the laser therapy toolbox for every patient, and every stage of care

The Laser Therapy CoCs is designed to provide you with the right non-invasive tools in your laser therapy toolbox to meet your clinical goals throughout a complete plan of care.

Laser therapy has been effectively used for many years in veterinary medicine. What we have learned, just like a pharmaceutical approach to care, it is not a one-size-fits-all approach. With the evolution of lasers within the CoCS, you now have access to multiple lasers for each stage of care; pain management, acute care/tissue healing, and at-home, long-term care. It is important to have options at each stage of the process.
