What is Laser Therapy?

Laser Therapy accelerates the body’s natural healing process through photo-bio-modulation. It is effective in treating chronic conditions, acute conditions, and post- surgical pain and inflammation.  Laser therapy works through laser light that is delivered through a non-invasive handpiece to treat the affected area.  The therapy laser system sends photons, or packets of light energy, deep into tissue without damaging it. These photons are absorbed within the mitochondria of the cells and induce a chemical change called “photo-bio-modulation”.   This light energy then inspires production of ATP in the cell.  ATP is the fuel, or energy, cells need for repair and rejuvenation.  Impaired or injured cells do not make this fuel at an optimal rate.  Increased ATP production leads to healthier cells, healthier tissue, and healthier animals. Your pet will feel a gentle and soothing warmth. As the laser is administered, many pets will relax, much like you would experiencing a good massage. The almost immediate relief of pain will allow your pet to be comfortable and any anxiety that your pet initially experienced will dissipate.
