Laser Therapy uses photons to help repair damaged cells, also reducing inflammation and inflammation in the process. Additionally, laser therapy can improve blood circulation and speed healing.

Manual therapy involves the deliberate movement of your pet's joints and limbs to decrease pain and improve mobility. This may include quick, short movements or moving the joint slowly through a passive range of motion.

Massage includes several different techniques for alleviating muscle pain by applying pressure to affected areas. This can restore normal muscle function and help your pet recover from their painful condition or injury.
