How does Laser Therapy provide pain relief?
Photons of light penetrate the tissues at certain wavelengths and activate anti-inflammatory and other healing mediators at the site. This acts to decrease inflammation and pain, and accelerates healing.
How does Laser Therapy accelerate healing from surgery or injury?
Laser therapy is a very helpful tool during postoperative recovery. In minor cases, laser therapy alone may be enough to alleviate pain and stimulate the healing process. Because it works directly on injured or affected areas, laser treatments can help speed up healing, strengthen muscle and tissue, improve mobility and enhance your pet's overall quality of life almost immediately.
What you can expect during a Laser Therapy treatment?
Treatment sessions take just a few minutes depending on the treatment settings. The treatment is non painful and feels like a warm beam of light. Special goggles or glasses are worn to protect the eyes during the treatment. Frequency of sessions depends on the type of treatment and vary from a single session to repeated sessions a few days a week.
