Therapeutic laser is indicated for increasing local blood circulation, relief of minor muscle and joint stiffness and associated discomfort. It can aid relaxation and reduce spasm in muscles and promote healing when superficial tissues are damaged, including wounds and surgical scars.
It is also helpful in settling down inflammation and improving comfort from minor but sore abrasions such as tack rubs, bites and kicks.
As always, Chartered Physiotherapists work within their scope of practice in conjunction with the veterinary surgeons act.
Hire of machine is £100 per week and at therapist's discretion only.
In most cases the use of laser would be included in my usual treatment fee, and I will use it if my assessment suggests it would be appropriate for the horse's condition.
