Cold Laser Therapy
What is Cold Laser Treatment
Cold Laser Therapy is a natural and drug free solution to pain. Multi Radiance Laser Technology has proven success rates alike to traditional treatment methods, including surgery, without the risks, complications, and lengthy recovery times. It is a safe and powerful technology that is applied with a cordless handheld applicator that is able to provide targeted super pulsed laser light that stimulates cells.
+ Why use lasers for veterinary treatment?
Laser Therapy devices provide accelerated pain relief and healing. This safe and powerful technology is applied with a cordless hand-held applicator providing targeted Super Pulsed Laser light that stimulates cell regeneration. Throughout the world, cold Laser Therapy is used to relieve acute/chronic pain, back pain, carpal tunnel, arthritis pain, fibromyalgia, tennis elbow, muscle strain, bursitis, tendonitis, and other injuries in humans; and is expanding into pet care
Laser Therapy can be particularly helpful in reducing pain and enabling arthritic animals to be more active. It also is beneficial in managing wounds and dermatological abnormalities including hot spots, lick granulomas, otitis externa, pyoderma and healing of surgical incisions. If there is infection, blue light therapy can be used to reduce the bacterial load and minimize the need for anti-microbial therapy. Laser Therapy can speed healing by decreasing pain and inflammation and promote blood flow to the affected areas.
+ What is low-level laser therapy?
Also known as soft laser, low-level laser therapy is a form of photo-therapy used to stimulate tissue repair and provide pain management. The laser uses focused red and infrared light to stimulate tissue at and below the surface of your pet’s skin. The biochemical effect of the low-level light increases the production of cellular energy and thus promotes cellular regeneration, production of collagen for tissue repair, and vascular dilation and synthesis for better circulation. Light from the low-level laser also encourages production of the body’s natural pain-relievers.
+ How long has low-level laser therapy been in veterinary medicine
The first low-level laser was developed in 1960 and early testing showed an increase in the speed and overall success of the healing process when it was used. Originally used for wound repair, clinical trials done throughout the 1970’s showed the applicability of the low-level laser in therapy to be more widespread than previously thought. The 1990’s came with the invention of more powerful and effective versions of the cold laser, eventually increasing its popularity in the field of rehabilitation.
