1. What is laser therapy?
Photobiomodulation is the scientific term for the biologic effects of laser light on cells. “Laser” light is different from LED and visible light because it is coherent, monochromatic, collimated and polarized. These properties influence the healing effects of laser light, and allow for deeper penetration. Penetrating photons from the K-laser influence cell chemistry in a variety of beneficial ways by activating or inhibiting pigmented molecules called chromophores. When cytochrome c-oxidase and NADH are activated by laser light they increase the synthesis of ATP, accelerating cellular function. Additionally, stimulation of production of other endogenous chemicals and hormones decreases pain, and inflammation, and improves drainage and vascularization. A pleasant warmth is also produced at the treatment site. Treatment time, power and laser pulse frequency are based on your pet’s individual condition and body size.
3. What should I expect?
There is generally no patient sedation or restraint required and the experience is usually pleasant and comforting to the animal. Pets do not need to have their hair clipped.
