Common treatment methods

  • Physiotherapy or chiropractic
  • Drug treatment

  • Laser treatment with low level lasers with PowerCure Pro.

Research has shown that using low level lasers like PowerCure Pro for back pain gives cells more energy to perform their functions, maintain health and well-being and to regenerate and heal after injury.

Laser therapy with PowerCure Pro

PowerCure Pro provides cutting-edge laser therapy, offering the power of professional lasers used in clinics, in a lightweight portable device that can be used from the comfort of your home. With no medication required, the treatment is safe, effective and provides lasting pain relief. PowerCure Pro’s restorative power is provided by advanced laser technology.

PowerCure Pro is placed in contact with the skin so that the photon energy can penetrate the tissues. This stimulates the body to produce adenosine triphosphate, also known as ATP, which carries energy into the cells. ATP interacts with various biomolecules inside the cells, promoting normal cell function and enhancing the body’s natural healing processes.

Low energy laser therapy (LLLT) is a treatment method that is gaining in popularity. Using lasers, we can manage pain, swelling and inflammation throughout the body. By focusing on affected tissues at the cellular level, these Class 3B medical lasers trigger beneficial physiological activities to promote healing and repair – where and when it is needed most. This results in:

  • Increased production of ATP (adenosine triphosphate)
  • Increased cell metabolism
  • Increased collagen production
  • Increased enzyme production
  • Increased protein synthesis
  • Improved blood circulation
  • Improved lymphatic flow and drainage
  • Reduced inflammation

The benefits of these therapeutic effects on dogs and cats are numerous, including accelerating healing and reducing chronic pain, as well as reducing pain, inflammation and drug consumption. LLLT has been proven to be safe and effective with no known side effects and can be safely used at home.
