Innovative Therapy

Dr. Roberts uses a cutting edge class 3b frequency specific laser as part of his extensive therapy plan.

Laser Therapy is an innovative treatment that provides many tissue-healing benefits for a wide variety of medical conditions. There are an abundance of applications for laser therapy in our patients.
Laser is the acronym for “light amplification of stimulated emission of radiation”. A laser is a device that emits focused, penetrating light beams with three qualities:

  • Light that is a single wavelength (monochromatic)
  • Photons traveling in the same phase and direction (coherent)
  • Photons that travel in a single straight beam (collimated)

These qualities allow the therapeutic laser to be tissue penetrating, in a focused area, which leads to activation of a whole range of positive cellular activity (photobiomodulation). These stimulated cellular activities, lead to the positive effects of laser therapy such as:

  • Relief of chronic and acute pain by modulation of nerves’ function and speed
  • Increases speed of tissue repair by increasing blood circulation
  • Stimulates the Immune System
  • Reduces Inflammation
  • Enhances collagen and muscle development, which in turn enhances healing
  • Stimulates development of new blood vessels
  • Reduces swelling from injury
  • Stimulates nerve healing, and reduces nerve damage


Conditions benefiting from laser therapy include:

  • Pain and inflammation
  • Spinal related injuries (including disc disease)
  • Joint disorders
  • Lameness – acute and non-acute
  • Progressive lameness (arthritis)
  • GI motility disease
  • Progressive myelopathies (“down in the rear” dogs)
  • Organ disorders
  • (e.g. liver disorders)
  • Wound healing
  • Cats and Exotics with limited medication options
