Here at Aurora Hills Animal Hospital we utilize the CTC Companion Compact Class IV Laser Therapy system. This laser is the veterinary version used by many professional sports teams including the Denver Broncos and the Colorado Rockies. Right now Aurora Hills Animal Hospital is one of only four veterinary hospitals in the eastern greater Denver Metro area to offer this advanced treatment option.
Laser Therapy is an FDA-cleared modality that reduces inflammation and this results in a reduction of pain. Laser Therapy is effective in treating chronic conditions, acute pain, and post-operative pain.
Laser therapy treatment is a painless, safe and fast option for pain control. Treatments to deeper tissues can be administered in as little as 5 minutes but can take as long as 10 minutes. Typically, even chronic patients exhibit improvement after 3 to 5 treatment sessions. Laser therapy utilizes the body's own healing powers by stimulating cellular activity. Even though the treatment times are short, laser therapy treatments initiate a healing process that continues to actively reduce inflammation for up to 24 hours after treatment.
Laser therapy has been clinically proven in both veterinary and human medicine as a viable modality for pain control.
