What is Laser Therapy?
Laser Therapy is a drug free, surgery free treatment that uses a beam of light to deeply penetrate tissue. The laser energy is absorbed by the cells, initiating a chemical change that reduces pain, reduces inflammation and speeds healing.
What are Treatments like?
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 may be necessary to get the maximum benefit.
How are Treatments administered?
The laser light is delivered to the affected area through a noninvasive handpiece. Many animals can feel immediate relief, and are often calmed by the painless treatment. Human athletes receiving similar treatments report feeling a soothing warmth during treatment. Treatment times vary depending upon the condition and the number of musculoskeletal structures involved.
What can Laser Therapy Treat?
Laser Therapy is beneficial for almost any condition where inflammation is present. In addition to treating pain, we use it to prevent injury and to maintain peak physical performance in out equine athletes.
