Laser Therapy integrates biology and quantum physics to accelerate healing at the cellular level.
Core Therapies uses cold laser beams, which are directed at the local area of injury (tendon, ligament, joint, spine, or acupuncture meridian) for 3 to 20 minutes. The laser light encourages cell regeneration to grow, change, and survive.
The beams are red in color, with some lasers having multiple beams programmed at specific frequencies to target the area of involvement. The treatment allows for focus on the injury while also stimulating the brain. This leads not only to healing, but also neurological re-organization and reorientation at the brain level.
The number of sessions needed varies, depending on the severity and chronic nature of the disease process. Other variables that determine the number of sessions include the general health of the horse as well as their performance goals and nutrition levels.
PEMF stands for "Pulsed Electro-Magnetic Field" Therapy. A PEMF device creates a gently pulsing magnetic field which restores health at a cellular level by stimulating cell metabolism.
This cellular stimulation helps to increase blood flow to the area and increases the permeability of the cell wall. In doing so, nutrients and oxygen are readily absorbed, and proteins more efficiently metabolized for use within the cell and surrounding tissue.
This means that damaging toxins and cellular waste can exit the cell more efficiently, reducing pain and inflammation and improving the overall healing capabilities. PEMF Therapy optimizes cell function and enhances the bodies natural ability to heal itself.
Iontophoresis is a type of therapy that uses electrical stimulation to deliver medication into the body through the skin, utilizing a low voltage gradient.
It helps reduce pain, inflammation, and muscle spasms, as well as helps manage scar tissue making it an ideal therapy for non-healing wounds, soft tissue injuries, and localized swelling.
