The application of light energy to areas of the body to stimulate healing and pain reduction. A laser utilizes wavelengths (measured in nanometers) that influences the biological effects of the tissue resulting in pain relief. The wavelength also determines the depth of penetration into the body’s tissues (the high the nanometer the deeper the penetration). Laser can be extremely beneficial in areas that may be hard to treat for example within joints.
Examples for use: osteoarthritis, hip dysplasia, IVDD (InterVertebral Disc Disease), recovery after orthopedic procedures (ie. Tibial Plateau Level Osteotomy, Extracapsular Repair), post operative application around incision/extraction sites (ie. spay/neuter procedures, dental procedures), wounds/swelling (to stimulate and accelerate healing)
