Cold Laser Therapy

Cold Laser Therapy

 

Laser therapy has been proven to be successful in treating many medical conditions such as:

  • Chronic non-healing wounds
  • Chronic joint pain
  • Muscle strains and tears
  • Degenerative conditions
  • Post-surgical pain
  • Tendon and ligament injuries
  • Bone fractures
  • Hip dysplasia
During treatment, a photochemical interaction takes place between the laser beam and the cells. Photons from the laser affect the tissue at the cellular level. The cold laser enters the tissue, alters cell membrane permeability and, at the cellular level, is absorbed in the mitochondria thereby increasing the energy, enhancing cell regeneration and speeding the healing process of your pet. Healing progress may be immediately evident!
  • Increases Healthy Tissue Regeneration: The laser accelerates cellular reproduction and growth
  • Aids Faster Wound Healing: The laser stimulates wound healing in damaged tissue. The improvement in recovery time is an important consideration
  • Increases Metabolic Activity: Low level laser therapy helps the body increase the output of specific enzymes, increases oxygen in the blood and enhances immune response.
  • Reduces Fibrous Tissue Formation: The laser reduces the formation of scar tissue following tissue damage from trauma, cuts, bites, scratches, burns, or following surgery
  • Stimulates Anti-Inflammatory Action: The laser reduces swelling, inflammation of joints and soft tissue, decreases pain caused by acute trauma or chronic repetitive stress.
  • Increases Vascular Activity: The laser stimulates lymph and blood circulation to allow the affected tissue to have the best possible circulation. This increase in circulation is necessary for optimum tissue regeneration and healing.
