How Does Laser Therapy Work?

How Can Our Laser Therapies Benefit Your Pet?

Help your pet heal with therapy laser. Drug Free. Surgery Free. Relief for your pet. Therapy Lasers have been scientifically proven and successful in treating post-surgical pain and many acute and chronic conditions.

1. Anti-Inflammation

Laser Therapy has an anti-edema 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 brusing or inflammation.

2. 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 glands.

3. Accelerated Tissue Repair and Cell Growth

Photons of light from lasers penetrate deeply into the 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.

4. 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 diameter of blood vessels.

5. Increased Metabolic Activity

Laser Therapy creates higher outputs of specific enzymes, greater oxygen and food particle loads for blood cells.

6. Trigger Points and Acupuncture Points

Laser Therapy stimulates muscle trigger points and acupuncture points on a non-invasive basis providing musculoskeletal pain relief.

7. Reduced Fibrous Tissue Formation

Laser Therapy reduces the formation of scar tissue following damage from cuts, scratches, burns or surgery.

8. 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 reconnection and increase the amplitude of action potentials to optimizw muscle action.

9. Immunoregulation

Laser light has a direct effect on immunity status by stimulation of immunoglobines and lymphocytes. Laser therapy is absorbed by chromophores (molecule enzymes) that react to laser light. The enzyme flavomononucleotide is activated and starts the production of ATP (adenosine-tri-phosphate), which is the the major carrier of cell energy and the energy source for all chemical reactions in the cells.

10. 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.

  • "I love this vet! Dr. Robbie is the best! Great staff also! The staff is so caring. I had to board my two cats while I was in the process of moving and they took great care of them! Not only that I was worried because my cat wasn't breathing well and she ended up having asthma and Dr. Robbie did everything to get her back to feeling better. My baby is doing great!!"
