Low level light therapy, or photobiomodulation, is a new form of treatment in both human and animal medicine. Laser energy causes a series of reactions in cells, which leads to a normalization of cell function. This in turn allows three important things to happen: decreased inflammation, decreased pain and accelerated tissue healing.
Many conditions have responded well to laser therapy in scientific studies:
- arthritis and dysplasias
- muscle, ligament and tendon injuries
- open wounds such as lick granulomas and abscesses
- chronic otitis (ear infections)
- post-surgical pain
- neck and back pain
In addition, current studies in human medicine are evaluating laser therapy's possible usage in neurologic traumas such as intervertebral disc disease.
