Therapy lasers exert a biochemical change or response called photobiomodulation (PBM), to promote tissue healing and relieve pain through the use of near-infrared light. Also known as low-level light (or laser) therapy, PBM is a non-invasive, non-thermal therapy that stimulates cells to generate more energy and undergo self-repair, with no side effects.
Clinical studies of laser therapy have shown many beneficial effects on a myriad of conditions including osteoarthritis, intervertebral disc disease, lick granulomas and cellulitis, to name a few.
Any place there is pain or inflammation in the body, we can use laser therapy to reduce it, including on the skin, muscles and tendons.
Laser therapy has been shown to be effective in promoting surgical and trauma-related wound healing, healing from infection, increasing metabolism to specific tissues, reducing the formation of scar tissue and improving nerve function and nerve regeneration.
If you have any questions about whether your pet would benefit from laser therapy or what happens during a session, please reach out to us at 250-545-8200.
