What is Therapeutic Laser Therapy?
Therapeutic Laser Therapy, or Low-Level Laser Therapy (LLLT), is a form of photobiomodulation (light therapy) which involves the application of monochromatic and coherent light to injuries and skin lesions to stimulate healing, reduce pain, and to promote tissue repair and nerve regeneration.
Unlike non-coherent light-emitting devices, such as common LED’s, the coherent, monochromatic and polarised radiation emitted by LASER has unique, specific, and scientifically-proven effects that, at the 810nm wavelength primarily used by SpectraVET, persist deep into the tissue.
What is Laser Therapy used for?
Laser therapy is used to increase the speed, quality, and strength of tissue repair, resolve inflammation, and give pain relief. It shortens recovery times and can reduce the lay-off time for sporting dogs.
The SpectraVET LASER is portable so treatment can be carried out in your home, or in the field, allowing the immediate and therefore more effective treatment of sports injuries, such as muscle tears, haematomas, and tendinopathies.
Who is Laser Therapy for?
Laser therapy is indicated in the treatment of animals with musculoskeletal pain, injuries, arthritis, and post-surgically. It can help speed up healing, reduce inflammation and pain, and shorten recovery time.
The Animal Wellness and Performance Clinic currently offers laser therapy for dogs and other small animals.
