Modern therapeutic lasers in humans and animals have a wide range of clinical applications including the management of osteoarthritis. They are also widely used in many veterinary clinics to accelerate healing, improve microcirculation and reduce inflammation in wounds, otitis and dental disorders.
Delivering the appropriate dosage to the target tissues is a key to successful laser treatment. Laser therapy dosage is measured in Joules per square centimeter, J/cm2. A dosage too low will have minimal treatment effects, whilst too high of a dosage will inhibit healing and may exacerbate the patient’s condition. The laser company’s pre-set protocols as well as your own dosage calculations can be used so you can deliver the most effective therapeutic dosage to your patients.
