How Pet Laser Therapy Heals
It might seem almost miraculous that light can be used to heal injuries and relieve pain. What happens when your pet undergoes laser therapy is a process called photobiomodulation. In simple terms, when low-level infrared light energy penetrates the skin and muscle tissue, it gets metabolized by the body’s cells. This increases cell repair and production, which:
- Accelerates healing
- Reduces inflammation and swelling
- Relieves pain
- Increases circulation
- Energizes the body
