What Is Laser Therapy?

lasertherapyLaser therapy is a non-invasive, non-surgical approach to many conditions. This treatment uses specific wavelengths of light on multiple parts of the body to help the body heal. Laser therapy is used to heal the body by stimulating tissue regeneration, increasing circulation and decreasing swelling. Using a beam of laser light to deeply penetrate tissue and induce a biological response called photo-bio-modulation, laser therapy causes the body to boost self-healing by increasing cellular adenosine-triphosphate. By using laser therapy, pets will have a reduction in pain while potentially shortening their healing time.
