Laser Therapy

Laser Therapy has long been known for its usefulness in pain relief, wound healing, arthritic conditions, intervertebral disk disease, pyotraumatic dermatitis (hot spots), post-surgical pain relief and incision healing, degenerative joint disease, lick granulomas, lacerations and abrasions, periodontal disease, gingivitis and otitis, among other things.

Therapeutic lasers are able to deliver larger doses of optimal wavelength light over a larger area for consistent treatment outcomes. Laser therapy, like acupuncture, eases pain and actually heals without the use of pharmaceuticals and in many cases surgery. Studies have shown that when tissue cultures are irradiated by lasers, intracellular proteins, specifically cytochrome C, absorb the energy from the laser. Photons are absorbed within the mitochondria and the cell membrane, producing higher ATP levels and boosting DNA production, leading to an increase in cellular health and energy. Like acupuncture, Laser Therapy reduces pain and inflammation, and stimulates nerve regeneration, muscle relaxation, and immune system response.
