Laser therapy, also called photobiomodulation, low level or cold laser therapy, is becoming more widely used in human and animal medicine. There is a growing body of evidence that the application of a therapeutic dose of light, in the proper wavelength and for the proper duration to impaired or dysfunctional tissue, leads to a
cellular response mediated by mitochondrial mechanisms
that reduce pain and inflammation and speed healing.
In short, energy in the form of light stimulates several
intracellular and extracellular mechanisms to increase
energy, oxygen, blood flow, and cellular repair.
Treatments are non-invasive, rather quick,
well-tolerated, and relatively economical
compared to more traditional therapies
like drugs or medicaments.
