Low Level Laser Therapy Origins
Cold Laser Therapy (often referred to Low Level Laser Therapy or LLLT) was first used by Endre Mester, at the Semmelweiss University in Hungary. Mester discovered biostimulation, when hair that was shaved off the backs of mice grew back quicker than the untreated group.
LLLT is today used to increase the tensile strength and quality of repaired tissue whilst reducing pain and inflammation.
Cold Laser Therapy
Low Level Laser Therapy (often referred to as Cold Laser or Soft Laser) involves applying red (635nm, 660nm) and near infra-red (785nm, 808nm, 830nm, 904nm) wavelengths to injured muscle groups improving the healing of soft tissue injuries and wounds, reducing chronic pain.
LLLT is commonly used for treating soft tissue injuries as well as conditions in joints, ligaments as well as tendons.
Class 3B Laser
Being a Class 3B laser (<500mW), the VetLaser 3000 does not heat muscle tissue and is safe and effective for use by Vets as well as owners and trainers.
With the correct wavelength and treatment protocol, the laser produces the required dosage to improve the metabolism of the cell s well as reducing inflammation.
Continuous Wave and Pulsed Nogier Frequencies
The VetLaser 3000 comes with Continuous Wave as well as 7 Pulsed Nogier frequencies.
These effects can be enhanced with pulses however when analgesia is required there is a second mechanism which works best when a strong continuous beam is applied.
