Laser Light Therapy

We have seen some great success in using Laser Light Therapy (Cold Laser Therapy) here at the Wellness Center. From post-surgery, ruptured disk, and torn or pulled ligaments, it has been offering great relief for many of my client’s pets. I have had clients who it has been a “quick” fix and others who make appointments for maintenance.
Clinical studies and research using laser therapy technology indicate the following beneficial effects of laser therapy on tissues and cells. Here are some benefits your pets can receive that are non-evasive and do not require drugs.

Anti-Inflammation
Anti-Pain (Analgesic)
Reduced Fibrous Tissue Formation
Improved Nerve Function
Accelerated Tissue Repair and Cell Growth
Improved Vascular Activity
Faster Wound Healing
Increased Metabolic Activity

Anti-Inflammation
Laser therapy has an anti-edemic effect as it causes vasodilation, but also because it activates the lymphatic drainage system (drains swollen areas). As a result, there is a reduction in swelling caused by bruising or inflammation

Anti-Pain (Analgesic)
Laser therapy has a high beneficial effect on nerve cells which block pain transmitted by these cells to the brain and which decreases nerve sensitivity. Also, due to less inflammation, there is less edema and less pain. Another pain blocking mechanism involves the production of high levels of pain killing chemicals such as endorphins and enkephlins from the brain and adrenal gland.

Reduced Fibrous Tissue Formation
Laser therapy reduces the formation of scar tissue following tissue damage from cuts, scratches, bums or surgery.

Improved Nerve Function
Slow recovery of nerve functions in damaged tissue can result in numbness and impaired limbs. Laser light will speed up the process of nerve cell reconnection and increase the amplitude of action potentials to optimize muscle action.

Accelerated Tissue Repair and Cell Growth
Photons of light from lasers penetrate deeply into tissue and accelerate cellular reproduction and growth. The laser light increases the energy available to the cell so that the cell can take on nutrients faster and get rid of waste products. As a result of exposure to laser light, the cells of tendons, ligaments and muscles are repaired faster.

Improved Vascular Activity
Laser light will significantly increase the formation of new capillaries in damaged tissue that speeds up the healing process, closes wounds quickly and reduces scar tissue. Additional benefits include acceleration of angiogenesis, which causes temporary vasodilatation, an increase in the diameter of blood vessels.

Faster Wound Healing
Laser light stimulates fibroblast development (fibroblasts are the building blocks of collagen, which is predominant in wound healing) in damaged tissue. Collagen is the essential protein required to replace old tissue or to repair tissue injuries. As a result, Laser Therapy is effective on open wounds and burns.

Increased Metabolic Activity
Laser therapy creates higher outputs of specific enzymes, greater oxygen and food particle loads for blood cells.

Along with the laser therapy, if needed, I can provide a free consult as per nutrition and or supplements that may be beneficial to your pet’s condition. Remember, Let food be thy medicine and medicine be thy food.” ~ Hippocrates
