Laser Therapy:

Dr. Campbell is certified to provide Laser therapy for dogs. Generally speaking, he uses a “cold” or “Low Level” device that produces light of a certain wavelength which will penetrate the dogs tissues.

He will use it alone or in conjunction with a chiropractic adjustment if necessary. Sessions run from 15 minutes to 30 minutes on Mondays between the hours of 5pm and 7pm.

It works by using a process called “photobiostimulation”, where energy from photons is delivered from the laser to cells in the affected area. The cells then use this energy to produce a variety of cellular functions.  This allows the body to increase circulation, repair tissues faster, and decrease inflammation, aid in nerve healing and reduce pain.   

Laser allows Dr. Campbell to reach both superficial injuries as well as deeper pain and inflammation such as with arthritis or post operative joint surgeries. 

Accelerates wound healing. The energy from the cold laser speeds cellular growth and reproduction and prompts the development of fibroblasts, cells that play a vital role in wound healing. The result is a faster recovery from injury.

Reduces swelling and inflammation. Swelling and inflammation may be part of the body’s natural response to an injury, but they often contribute to the patient’s discomfort and limit their ability to move the damaged area. With less inflammation and swelling, patients see a decrease in bruising and discomfort and an increase in mobility.

Decreases scar tissue. Cold laser therapy reduces the formation of fibrous tissue during the recovery process, so less scar tissue forms as surgical incisions, cuts, scratches, and burns heal.

Improves vascular activity. Treatment with laser energy encourages blood and lymph circulation, flooding the affected tissue with the raw materials the body needs to perform repairs on its tissues.

Enhances metabolic activity. The laser’s energy spurs increased oxygen delivery to the targeted area, prompts a more effective immune response, and fuels a greater output of specific enzymes. This additional activity contributes to speedier healing.

Stimulates nerve function. When nerve function in damaged tissue slows down, the result is numbness or loss of function. The light energy emitted by the cold laser supports the recovery and reconnection of nerve cells, speeding the restoration of “feeling” and control to the site of the injury.

Reduces pain. Cold laser therapy fights pain in multiple ways. For starters, it supports faster healing, and a shorter recovery time means less time spent being uncomfortable. More directly, this therapy is effective in decreasing inflammation, swelling, scar tissue, and nerve dysfunction. Since these are all factors that can cause discomfort, reducing their impact means the patient experiences less pain and will require less pain medication.
