What is laser therapy?
Laser therapy is a painless, non-surgical, non-drug option that helps with and speeds up the body's natural healing process. It uses light energy to increase circulation to the area, which reduces inflammation, swelling, muscle spasms, stiffness, and pain. Many animals show results after just one treatment, but will usually improve more with each treatment. Treatments usually last just a few minutes. Animals typically handle the treatment very well, and many even seem to enjoy it!
How does laser therapy work?
Laser therapy works through a process called biomodulation, in which specific wavelengths of light energy increase local bloodflow. This brings more oxygen and nutrients to the area and removes cellular waste products more quickly than normal. The light energy stimulates the blood to release more oxygen, which improves the cells' metabolism, speeding up tissue repair, cell growth, and wound healing. Animals also have reduced inflammation, reduced pain, and improved nerve function. Laser therapy treatment also results in less scar tissue formation than seen on injuries that are not treated with laser therapy. Watch the video below for a more detailed explanation.
