Photo-therapy (photo-biomodulation) is the application of therapeutic light which is designed to stimulate healing and to inhibit pain. You may also find this referred to as red light therapy or infrared light therapy.
I use a Photizo® Vetcare unit which emits red light and infra-red light and helps with speeding up the repair process at sites of injury. This therapeutic light relieves pain, stimulates cells to repair and heal themselves, reduces swelling and inflammation and stimulates the immune system in acute traumatic conditions.
Photizo® Vetcare offers many benefits to horses, in particular it:-
- is effective in treating chronic pain and inflammatory conditions associated with arthritic conditions and overuse injuries;
- stimulates healing;
- relieves pain, swelling and inflammation;
- reduces muscle spasms; and
- increases the blood and lymph vessel diameter, to ensure clearing of waste products and inflow of oxygen, nutrients and medication concentrations in the areas treated.
