Laser Therapy at Physio-Vet
This uses light that is beyond the spectrum visible to the human eye. The laser beam can penetrate about 5cm into the body. We have several different lasers in the practice. All are Class 3b cold lasers so the tissues do not heat up and the operator and patient do not have to wear goggles. Laser light speeds up how fast cells multiply. This brings about more rapid healing. Laser therapy also results in the production of more collagen which is the building block of repair.
Lasers also increase blood supply to the area being treated that again speeds up healing.
Lasers also stimulate the animals brain to release endorphins – the body’s natural pain killer.
