What is Laser Therapy?

MLS Laser Therapy is a painless, non-invasive pain management treatment that uses specific wavelengths of light to treat painful and debilitating conditions.  

How does it work?

The lasers increase circulation of the treatment area, sending oxygen and blood to the painful region. The light energy enters the damaged cells and stimulates inter-cellular activity to stimulate tissue healing, cell repair and healthy tissue growth. This reduces pain in the area and speeds recovery of the damaged cells. The typical treatment lasts about three minutes.  

What can be expected after the treatment?

Most patients see improvement in one to three treatments. Chronic conditions can be managed with regular monthly treatments. In addition, there are no known side effects and pain medications can be reduced or eliminated after treatment.

  • "We love Dr. Wood. He has saved our puppy from very bad things several times. He loves and cares for our pet as if he were his own. I highly recommend Northside!! I love that they do diagnostics - blood work and x-rays, same as us humans have to get real answers."
    ★★★★★ | Corinna M
  • "Thank you to Dr Wood and staff for fixing our Micks leg today after we had taken him to another vet for a laceration repair. The sutures that we’re placed by the other vet ripped open five days later. Mick is home resting comfortably with his cozy pillow around his neck. We appreciate your help in getting this fixed correctly! Thank you for your time and compassion!"

I would like to say thank you to their newest Vet. Dr.Roth. She took excellent care of my little Lou Lou yesterday with her many seizures.
