What Does The Laser Do?

This is the question that everyone asks. In a nutshell, cold laser therapy uses energy in the form of concentrated light to enhance the body's ability to repair itself. More specifically, cold laser therapy has been demonstrated to do the following:

  • Reduces pain and inflammation in arthritic joints and spine.
  • Reduces pain and inflammation in physically injured joints, spine, tendons, ligaments and connective tissue.
  • Improves the body's ability to repair compromised or damaged cells, tissues and organs.
  • Enhances the body's immune response against infectious organisms such as virus, bacteria and fungi.
  • Accelerates wound healing.
  • Improves the body's ability to repair spinal cord injury following a disk rupture or herniation. This is especially important for Dachshunds and other small breeds prone to back injury.
  • Improves blood microcirculation to injured joints, tissues and organs.
  • Increases the body's ability to manufacture three vitally important antioxidant enzymes - super oxide dismutase, catalase and glutathione peroxidase.
  • Increases available energy to the body's repair mechanisms without increasing toxic free radical release, a consequence of normal cellular energy production.

At Plano Animal Clinic, we use an Erchonia PL 5000, class III, cold laser, one of the most advanced units on the market. In our hands, cold laser therapy has been, and will continue to be, a marvelous tool for safely improving the health and comfort of our patients.

Note: While laser therapy has helped many of our patients, individual patient response may vary. Cold laser therapy is not considered a "stand alone" therapy, but works in concert with other treatment modalities.
