What is the difference between hot and cold laser therapy?
Cold laser therapy is a non-invasive method of therapy that uses light to stimulate cell regeneration and increase the circulation of blood. It is used to treat the surface of the skin.
Hot laser therapy is also non-invasive and is used to treat deeper tissues. This method generates thermal energy that penetrates the tissues to provide relief and relaxation.
What conditions can be treated using laser therapy?
Laser therapy effectively treats patients who have arthritis or other soft tissue injuries. It treats acute and chronic problems like sprains, strains, swelling, surgical wounds, and more. Laser therapy also promotes wound healing.
Can my pet tolerate laser therapy?
Many people worry their pets won’t tolerate laser therapy. However, most pets find it relaxing and enjoy it very much. Therapy sessions are often short, with no additional requirements such as sedation or fur removal, making it easier for pets to sit through the sessions.
