Cold Laser Therapy
Cold laser therapy uses light in the form of low-level laser treatments to stimulate tissue repair and increase blood flow to provide pain management after an injury or surgery. When the correct laser wavelength is used, it releases endorphins for pain relief and pain signals are reduced and nerve sensitivity decreases.
This non-invasive procedure does more than just reduce pain and sensitivity. The use of low-level light triggers the production of cellular energy, promoting cellular regeneration, production of collagen for tissue repair and vascular dilation and synthesis for improved circulation. Because cold laser therapy triggers growth and the rejuvenation of some cells, it also can stimulate blood flow to cancer cells in pets with cancer and is not recommended for those patients.
