Practitioner: Justine Nord
Session Fee: $175
Session Length: 70 – 90 Minutes
Equine Cold Laser Therapy is a painless treatment that uses clinically tested wavelengths of light to stimulate natural biological processes leading to faster healing and pain relief. Like plants absorb sunlight through photosynthesis, cells in the body absorb laser energy that stimulates the body to release pain relieving compounds and are energized to participate in the healing process. There are no side effects and many times laser therapy can take the place of pharmaceuticals and surgery to treat long-term, degenerative conditions.
Equine athletes (i.e. Hunter Jumper, Dressage, Western Pleasure and Racehorses) are also ideal recipients of cold laser therapy to enhance strength while maintaining flexibility.
Our senior friends are excellent candidates for cold laser therapy maintenance and can be extremely beneficial for arthritis, metabolic conditions and other health problems that tend to trouble older horses.
For horses who have a non-emergency acute condition or a chronic issue cold laser therapy is a wonderful balancing method as well as a safe compliment to Western Medicine, homeopathy, chiropractic, massage and all other forms of wellness care.
For horses with behavioral issues especially fear-based aggression, or anxiety, spooking ,cribbing, etc cold laser therapy is a powerful tool to help them relax and stop the cycle of panic or anxiety.
Cold laser therapy supports horses suffering from acute conditions or who are rehabilitating from surgery or injury.
Cold laser therapy can work well with training sessions and behavior modifications to help speed up the desired results.
