Laser light works on the body at the cellular level. The light particles from the laser beam stimulate cells in the body to increase metabolism and energy output. This in tsurn reduces inflammation, increases circulation, and decreases edema/swelling. Therapeutic lasers are different than surgical cutting lasers, they do not work by producing heat or burning tissue.
Conditions that benefit from laser therapy:
- Tendon & ligament injuries
- Muscle pain & stiffness
- Inflammation & swelling
- Difficult to heal wounds
Dr. Warren has over 20 years of experience using therapeutic lasers in performance horses. He has the essential knowledge of correct wavelengths, frequencies, and time to deliver appropriate dose of laser light. This insures that the desired affect is obtained and no injury occurs to the horse.
Including laser into the treatment plan for your horse can greatly reduce healing time using simple, noninvasive, drug free, and safe therapy.
