Infrared Laser Therapy for Animals

Infrared Laser Therapy for Animals
Infrared Laser Therapy is used to relax muscles, improve circulation and lessen pain.  IFT works by sending a very specific type of infrared light into the muscle, joint, or nerve tissue.  This light stimulates the cells within the area to release endorphins.  Endorphins relieve the body of pain and allows the soft tissue in the area to relax.  The laser also has the additional effect of stimulating the cells to produce more energy, (ATP) which increases the rate of recovery and allows the muscle, nerve, or joint tissue to recover faster.

This modality is often used for the animals that may not be so cooperative with acupuncture.
