Laser therapy (i.e. photobiomodulation therapy- PBMT) is used to treat inflammation and relieve pain. This therapy does not generate heat but provides light energy to the mitochondria of the cell. Mitochondria produce energy in the form of ATP. ATP is the form of energy used by a cell to perform its functions. Enhanced energy production allows cells to repair areas of the body that have been compromised by things like trauma or the aging process. It is a great tool for managing pain and inflammation in all species. It can be used as a complementary treatment with conventional medicine; as a stand alone treatment; or in conjunction with acupuncture or chiropractic. Laser therapy with our medical grade 4B unit is extremely safe and most animals enjoy their treatments.
We cannot treat eyes or cancer with PBMT.
