How does Pet Laser Therapy work?
Laser therapy involves directing infra-red radiation into inflamed or damaged tissues to accelerate the body’s natural healing process.
The laser is placed in direct contact with the skin which enables light photons to penetrate the tissue and interact with molecules within the cells to cause several biochemical effects (photobiomodulation).
Pet Laser effects:
- Increases the temperature of the tissue which has a soothing effect and increases vascular supply
- Provides energy for the cells within the tissue allowing them to repair
- Reduces the transmission of pain signals from the tissue to the central nervous system
