What is Laser Therapy?


Topics | Health
Posted | January 7, 2019

Therapeutic laser therapy has been used in human medicine for decades and is now becoming a common complementary therapy in veterinary medicine. Often referred to as Low Level Laser Therapy (LLLT) or less accurately, as "cold" laser, these lasers are different from surgical lasers, which cut tissue with a very concentrated beam. Simply put, low level laser therapy works when the laser beam penetrates to the cellular level, causing a reaction that essentially boosts the cell's energy. Increased energy means faster tissue repair and cell growth creating results like pain relief, decreased swelling and faster healing of wounds and injuries, just to name a few. Laser therapy initiates the body.s own healing process meaning that, even after the treatment is over, the anti-inflammatory response can continue for up to 24 hours!

Laser therapy is a non-invasive, quick and essentially painless treatment for a wide variety of conditions. Laser can be used to treat acute conditions such as soft tissue injury, surgery recovery, wounds and bone fractures as well as chronic conditions such as arthritis, ear infections, skin infections and some neurological issues. Most treatments take less than 15 minutes and even chronic patients can experience improvement after just a few treatments. The frequency and duration of treatment depends on the condition being treated but, most patients can decrease or stop laser treatments over time and still achieve the same results as their body begins to heal itself.
