Bioptron Polarised Light Therapy is based on 20 years of clinical research and development from Switzerland. It has a proven record for speeding up healing, and helping acute and chronic injuries in the veterinary field.
The Bioptron Light Therapy System supports the body to heal itself. It works on the cellular level assisting cells to increase activity, which influences higher energy levels and enhanced regenerative processes. It regulates blood cells and the immune system, which is the key factor in tissue repair and healing. It is ideal for pain relief, muscle tension and muscle strains by stimulating natural endorphins. It also helps with any swellings and skin problems. Bioptron Light Therapy within 4 minutes of still application penetrates 2.5 cm into the tissue.
The bioptron light that I use is around the size of a hair dryer. You can get bigger ones but I find this is enough for the work that I do with it. It's amazing the responses you get from some of the horses you use it on as they just seem to know that its doing them some good.
I have used it for all sorts of problems and with some quite incredible results. One case I had - a wither swelling - just wouldn’t improve at all over 2 weeks of trying all sorts of things and then I used the Bioptron Light on it once and that was the end of it!
I find it particularly good for wounds of all descriptions and any swellings. Tendon and ligament injuries also respond especially well. I have used it on sore backs that were previously too sore to be massaged and within 15 minutes of Bioptron Light Therapy I was able to massage the area afterwards. Great little tool to have on hand.
