"L" - Laser therapy (復健激光治療)

Laser therapy uses light energy that is absorbed by the cells to help them to upregulate and do a better job.

Friday 11th May 2018

We call this process photobiomodulation. The laser light is set at a specific wavelength that is not absorbed by blood, dark coat or water, which means it doesn’t heat the body tissue and damage your pet. We can’t see the laser light (although there is a red beam to track it, so we wear goggles and our patients were doggles to protect the retina in the eye from any risk of damage.

復健激光治療使用低波長激光打入細胞中,利用光生物調節作用以加速受傷組織的修復癒合,減緩發炎反應及痛楚。這個特定的波長不會被血液,深色皮膚或水吸收,這意味著它不會加熱並損害細胞組織。由於人類和動物的肉眼看不見激光,治療儀器特別配上紅色光以示警醒。為了保護眼睛網膜免受損壞,我們亦有專用的護目鏡提供給我們的小患者。
