LASER Therapy

Laser treatments are becoming more widely recognised within the veterinary industry. Here at Foxwood, we offer laser sessions using a class 3b EMS laser unit. 

What is Laser Therapy?

The light produced by a laser, which is an acronym for light amplification by stimulated emission of radiation, has the ability to be absorbed by tissues, creating both photothermal and photochemical reactions that create a therapeutic benefit.

Laser therapy can be used to treat a number of issues including:

  • Surgical and traumatic wounds

  • Reducing the formation of scar tissue

  • Improving nerve function and nerve regeneration

  • Releasing of painful trigger points and tight muscle 

  • Speeding the healing of infections

  • Arthritis

  • Tendon/ligament injuries 

How Does Laser Therapy Work?

Therapeutic laser therapy uses light energy, which is cold or low-level, to work its “magic.” Light used at specific frequencies causes a physiological change at the cellular level.

These changes can include replenishing adenosine triphosphate (ATP, the molecule that carries energy in the cells of every living being), reducing inflammation and decreasing pain transmission.

If you have any further questions or concerns about laser treatments, please do not hesitate to contact Sam and she will be happy to have a chat.
