Laser therapy stimulates cellular activity that improves the speed and quality of healing. Infrared light from the laser results in the formation of adenosine triphosphate which is needed for many metabolic processes leading to increased cell generation and regulation of growth factors, cytokines, and inflammatory mediators which are important for healing. Laser therapy also increases endorphins to relieve pain.
Wavelengths of 780-980nm (such as AnShen’s Class 3B cold laser) can be used on acupuncture points to allow acupuncture without needles for those animals who are sensitive.
Molly, a 20 year old Holstein cow, has a history of arthritis, chronic wounds and abscesses. Laser treatment healed her deep skin wounds and abscesses and helped her joints to feel more comfortable.
Ruby, a 11 year old mixed breed spaniel first came to AnShen with chronic kidney failure and no appetite. Fear of the vet after many blood draws and catheters made needle-less acupuncture easy for her. One laser acupuncture treatment got her to start eating again, and her energy, comfort and appetite have increased with regular laser acupuncture treatment.
