Soft Tissue Injuries
Lasers are well known for their treatment properties and have been used by Veterinarians to treat numerous pain conditions and soft tissue injuries in horses and greyhounds for many years. There are literally hundreds of studies conducted around the world that indicate the benefits of using laser therapy as a treatment modality and the positive outcomes that arise through its use.
Inflammation, Swelling & Wounds
Lasers are very effective in treating inflammation, swelling and wounds. Laser therapy produces millions of photons to sick or injured cells that require healing or rejuvenation. This has a positive effect on tissues, muscles and nerves allowing for the quickest recovery and healing possible.
Acute & Chronic Pain
The Laser 3000™ is a low level laser therapy machine ideal for use on acute and chronic pain found in greyhounds and horses. Greyhounds and horses place enormous strain on their muscles during both training and racing, thus increasing the likelihood of developing debilitating injuries that can disrupt their racing career. Being drug free and non-invasive, this form of treatment has many advantages over conventional therapies.
Additionally, therapeutic lasers are excellent for treating acupuncture points, wounds and scars, the types of problems that are found close to the surface of the animal’s body.
Laser light enters the muscle tissue, increasing micro-circulation, with the effect of speeding the healing process and providing pain relief.
