Respond Cold Laser Treatments

Low Level Laser Therapy (LLLT) with Respond™ Cold Laser

The Respond 2400 XL is a class IIIB cold laser. They are called cold lasers or soft lasers because they do not emit heat and therefore do not cause tissue damage. This device is FDA approved as “non-significant risk” device.

At this time, scientific studies indicate that cold lasers are more effective at penetrating the skin than LEDs (Light Emitting Diodes) and are therefore more effective. Laser light is able to penetrate through tissue layers and help to stimulate cellular energy and metabolic processes which promote healing and tissue regeneration (including increased collagen and epithelial production). Cold Laser light can also stimulate the release of natural pain killing endorphins within the body which facilitate long lasting pain relief.

To read more about the benefits and effects of LLLT demonstrated by thousands of double blind studies done in both clinical and laboratory settings, please see the Laser FAQ site that Respond has put together.

Cold Lasers are often used for: Tendon and ligament strains, tears, lesions, bowed tendons, wounds, sore muscles and bruises, and sore backs. Cold Lasers are a non-invasive way to stimulate acupressure points in navicular, bruised feet, and laminitis cases.

Local veterinarians are supportive of using cold laser in addition to regular treatment protocols for soft tissue injuries and wounds. The Respond cold laser is also a great tool for massage therapy in helping to treat trigger points. We work closely with our vets.
