What is Laser Therapy and how does it work?
Laser Therapy (using Respond Systems LuminexVet Laser) is a painless treatment that uses clinically tested wavelengths of light to stimulate natural biological processes leading to faster healing and pain relief. Like plans absorb sunlight through photosynthesis, cells in the body absorb laser energy that stimulates the body to release pain relieving compounds (endorphins) and are energized to participate in the healing process. There are no side effects and many times laser therapy can take the place of pharmaceuticals and surgery to treat long-term, degenerative conditions.
Laser Therapy can provide: pain relief, faster healing, increased mobility and reduce inflammation.
Laser Therapy can treat any condition that causes swelling and pain, including: wounds and soft tissue injuries, arthritis, intervertebral disc disease, lick granuloma, muscles, tendon and ligament tears, neurologic injuries, skin conditions, chronic pain and more.
Acute conditions can be resolved with just a few treatments, however it is not unusual for a chronic condition to require multiple treatments over a period of several weeks. Mos treatments take up to an hour for an equine or 15 minutes on a canine.
