What is laser therapy?
Laser therapy uses a drug-free, surgery free beam of laser light to deeply penetrate the tissue. The laser energy is absorbed by the cells, and this initiates a chemical change in the cells that reduces pain, reduces swelling, reduces inflammation and speeds healing.
What are the costs?
Treatment protocols are unique to each patient and the patient’s condition. For some conditions, a single treatment may be all that is required. For more chronic and difficult conditions, a series of treatments might be necessary to get the maximum benefit.
What does ‘Class IV’ mean?
Class IV lasers are more powerful than laser pointers or laser printers, or the laser scanners at checkout counters. This additional power is critical for healing equine athletes, as it important to get an adequate dose of laser energy deep into the affected tissue to start the healing process.
How are treatments given?
The laser light is delivered to the affected area through a noninvasive handpiece. Many horses feel immediate relief, and are often calmed by the treatment, Treatments are painless. Human athletes receiving similar treatments report feeling a soothing warmth during treatment. Treatment times vary from a few to many minutes depending upon the condition, the number of musculoskeletal structures involved, or the size of the area that must be treated.
What can laser therapy treat?
Laser therapy is beneficial for almost any condition where inflammation or pain are present. In addition to treating pain and inflammation, many veterinary professionals also use it to prevent injury and to maintain peak performance in equine athletes.
Class IV Therapy Lasers emit a powerful yet painless beam of laser light deep into tissue to stimulate a photo-bio-chemical cascade of events at the cellular level which relieves pain, reduces inflammation and increases microcirculation. Combined, these three events accelerate healing.
