Cold Laser Therapy

Kona laser therapy for dogsCold laser therapy is effective in treating:

  • Surgical and traumatic wounds and lesions
  • Mobility issues caused by muscle strain, fractures, joint disease and injuries to tendons or ligaments
  • Arthritis
  • Nerve damage

Protons within the laser beam aid healing by increasing cellular function to help with better absorption of nutrients and improved cell reproduction. Cold laser therapy works by:

  • Reducing inflammation of soft tissue
  • Increasing blood flow
  • Releasing fluid build-up in body tissue (edema)
  • Easing pain
  • Decreasing bacteria

Depending on the medical situation, a series of applications, spaced over days or weeks, is usually recommended for full treatment.
