Laser is an acronym for Light Amplification by the Stimulated Emission of Radiation.
What is laser therapy and how does it work?
Laser therapy is the use of specific wavelengths of light
to treat painful and debilitating conditions. Light energy enters the damaged
cells and stimulates inter-cellular activity. This reduces pain in the area and
speeds recovery of the damaged cells. Once the cells recover, the healing
process is complete.
Effects of MLS Laser Therapy:
- Reduced Inflammation (Vasodilation and Activation of Lymphatic Drainage System)
- Reduced Pain (Blocks Pain Signals Transmitted to Nerve Cells)
- Accelerated Tissue Repair and Cell Growth
- Improved Vascular Activity
- Increases Metabolic Activity
- Stimulation of Trigger and Acupuncture Points
- Reduced Fibrous Tissue Formation from Cuts, Burns, etc.
- Improved Nerve Function
- Faster Wound Healing (Stimulation of Fibroblast Development)
What can be expected after the treatment?
Most pets experience positive results in 1 to 3 treatments, with the average course of treatment being 7 to 10 sessions. Swelling is greatly reduced and there is a rapid relief of pain. Acute conditions usually subside quickly, typically within one phase of treatments, while chronic
conditions can be controlled with regular treatments. The effects of MLS Laser Therapy are cumulative; therefore, expect to see improvement as the treatment plan progresses. It is important that once your pet starts receiving laser therapy that the entire course of treatments is completed, as recommended by your doctor ("Laser Therapy."
