How does laser therapy work?
The companion laser system sends
photons, or packets of light energy, deep into the tissue without damaging it. These photons are absorbed within the mitochondria of the cells and induce a chemical change called "photo-bio-modulation". This light energy then inspires production of ATP in the cell. ATP is the fuel, or energy, cells need for repair and rejuvenation. Impaired or injured cells do not make this fuel at an optimal rate. Increased ATP production leads to healthier cells, tissues and healthier animals.
How long does treatment take?
Treatment protocols are unique to
each patient and condition. Therefore, treatments will vary in time, complexity and cost. For some chronic patients,multiple joints will be treated during one laser treatment session. When appropriate, laser therapy can be used as a complementary adjunct to other treatment plans.
