Dr. Kristen Hammett of the Animal Hospital of Waynesville announces the addition of K-Laser Class IV therapeutic laser treatments for advanced pain relief and enhanced tissue healing.

“We are very excited to offer these new treatment modality for our patients,” said Hammett. “Therapeutic lasers have been used in Europe for dozens of years, but have been used in the U.S. only since 2005. The K-Laser is an effective treatment for conditions that involve pain, swelling, inflammation or that need to heal.”

The K-Laser is a product of K-Laser USA, the leading company in Class IV laser therapy.

"We can help many more patients than we could before, in a safe, effective and drug-free manner,” said Hammet. “The K-Laser is one of the most exciting new therapies in veterinary medicine. It is very rewarding to help our patients get the results they want, and with virtually no side effects. We have been treating arthritis, spinal disease in backs and neck, sprains, hot spots, ear, skin and anal infections, sinusitis, lick granulomas, as well as our incisions after surgery.”

Laser therapy works by stimulating production of cellular energy in damaged cells and by enhancing the cell membrane permeability. This promotes the speed and the quality of healing, enhances the exchange of nutrients and wastes across the cell membrane, and improves elasticity of injured tissues.

Laser therapy also modulates pain and reduces inflammation. It can be used immediately on acute injuries, over broken skin and over metal implants. Laser therapy enhances the rate and quality of healing of acute injuries and can help with the resolution of chronic complaints such as arthritis.

“The K-Laser is being used in the very best veterinary hospitals across the country,” said Hammet. “We are very pleased to offer the latest laser therapy technology to our patients with the K-Laser.”
