*NEW* Low Level Laser Therapy

Omega Low Level Laser Therapy System
Treating a large splint on a horse's hindlimb
Posted 6th July, 2010
The most recent addition to my "therapy toolbox" is a Low Level Laser Therapy (LLLT) system. It will be getting its own section on my website soon but in the meantime I wanted to give people a chance to hear about the benefits of this treatment.

In short - LLLT works by stimulating cell processes, accelerating healing. It also reduces pain and inflammation by means of vasodilation and inhibition of pain receptors. Levels of serotonin and endorphins also increase during LLLT, meaning most animals enter a state of relaxation. It can also be used to neutralise infection and bacterial growth.

LLLT can help with a wide range of conditions, including:
* Wound healing - recovery from accidental or post-surgical wounds
* Soft tissue injuries and bruising
* Muscle spasm
* Tendon and ligament injuries
* Scarring
* Fractures
* Blemishes - splints, windgalls, capped hocks, etc
* Thrush and mud fever
* Joint pain, i.e. due to arthritis.

I received my LLLT system in June 2010 and am already having a great deal of success with it. If you have any enquiries about whether your animal would benefit from LLLT, please do not hesitate to contact me.
