Photizo Vetcare Light Therapy

I was proud to be a part of the Photizo light therapy team at Crufts 2018.

I am also going to BSAVA 2018 with the Photizo light therapy team.

WHAT CAN I TREAT WITH THE PHOTIZO® VETCARE?

PHOTIZO® VETCARE IS DESIGNED TO TREAT:

  • Domestic animals –dogs and cats

  • Large Livestock – cattle, sheep, goats, pigs, bucks, etc.

  • Horses

Photizo® Vetcare relieves pain, stimulates cells to repair and heal, reduce swelling and inflammation, and stimulates the immune system in acute traumatic conditions. Photizo® Vetcare is effective in treating chronic pain and inflammatory conditions associated with arthritic conditions and overuse injuries. Photizo® Vetcare 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.

PHOTIZO® VETCARE HAS PROVEN TO BE EFFECTIVE IN THE TREATMENT OF:

  • Skin conditions: wounds, lacerations, hyaloma tick bite necrosis, hot-spots, abscesses, saddle sores, habronema, proud flesh, acral lick granulomas, bruising, otitis externa, pyoderma, pododermatitis, skin allergies, eczema, etc.

  • Musculoskeletal problems: Arthritis, tendonitis, myositis, ligament/tendon sprain/strains, bruising, fractures, neck and back pain, splints, overuse injuries, synovitis, edema, hematomas, muscle injuries, muscle spasms, trigger points, seromas, mastitis, etc.

  • Post-op: any area treated surgically, including skin grafts.

  • Other: Corneal ulcers, viral/herpes-related conditions, sinusitis, retro-orbicular trauma.

 

HOW DOES THE PHOTIZO® VETCARE ASSIST IN PAIN RELIEF, HEALING AND IMMUNE STIMULATION?

ACUTE INJURIES:

Photizo® Vetcare stimulates the energy production (ATP) inside the cell, by up to 250 times, thereby stimulating the cells to function at optimum levels. It further stimulates and regulates the DNA and RNA synthesis – the programs inside the cell – to follow the correct healing process, and regulates scar tissue/proud flesh formation. This speeds up the natural healing process by up to 30-40%, and reduces the likelihood of excess scar tissue formation andcomplications. Photizo® Vetcare stimulates endorphin and serotonin secretion.

This is the body’s own pain and relaxing “medication”. Photizo® Vetcare effectively reduces the inflammatory process that is caused by damage, injury or overuse and reduces muscle spasms and trigger points.

Photizo® Vetcare assists in reducing swelling by increasing the blood vessel and lymph diameter to clear excess waste products from the injured or inflamed area. This reduces the pressure and irritation on nerve endings that causes more pain, and increases blood flow into the area, ensuring that the tissues can absorb more nutrients and oxygen.

This also helps to reduce excess wound substrate to reduce the risk of secondary bacterial infections. The increased blood supply to the area, ensures higher concentrations of topical and systemic medications delivered to the affected area. Photizo® Vetcare stimulates the immune cells, to react against infections. Photizo® Vetcare stimulates optimum cell condition (skin, bone, nerve, capsule, cartilage and muscle tissue) to maintain healthy tissue. This may help to prevent degeneration of tissues like nerves, bone/joints and blood vessels.

OVERUSE INJURIES AND CHRONIC CONDITIONS:

The healing phases of tissue occur in 3 phases, namely the inflammation, proliferation and organization phase.

Chronic “injuries” or overuse inflammatory reactions occur when the tissue does not complete this cycle. The tissue stays in the inflammatory phase and does not progress into the proliferation (actual healing of cells and tissues) or organization phase. For these “injuries” to heal, the body needs stimulation of the cell’s programs (DNA and RNA), e.g. finalize the inflammation phase and move onto the real healing phase. When the inflammation process organizes into scar tissue formation, it causes adhesions that inhibit the normal “gliding” of muscle and tissue fibers, causing irritation, and further inflammation, turning into a vicious circle.

Photizo® Vetcare will relieve muscle spasms, release painful trigger points, reduce the inflammatory processes and relieve pain, thereby breaking the circle, to give the tissue the opportunity to start the healing process if possible, or in chronic conditions, maintain pain free periods.

Please note that treatment with the Photizo® Vetcare will not break down the adhesions, but will control the inflammatory processes and discomfort, and reduce the risk of further scar tissue formation. Always treat directly when the problem starts, as this will help prevent chronic problems.

CHRONIC PAIN:

  • All types of arthritis and irreversible joint damage, chronic muscle spasms, trigger/acupuncture points

  • The Photizo® Vetcare stimulates endorphin and serotonin secretion. This is the body’s own pain and relaxing “medication”. (This effect is especially profound in the feline family).

  • Photizo® will effectively reduce the inflammatory process that is caused by damage or overuse.

  • Treatment will reduce muscle spasms and release tight trigger points. It will also assist in reducing swelling by increasing the blood vessel and lymph diameter to clear excess waste products from the area affected. This reduces the pressure and irritation on nerve endings that causes more pain. Increased blood flow into the area ensures that the tissues can absorb more nutrients and oxygen.

  • Treatment reduces the conduction speed, and the irritability of the pain conducting nerves.

  • Photizo® effectively reduce muscle spasms and releases tight trigger points.

  • Treatment will stimulate optimum cell condition (bone, nerve, capsule, cartilage and muscle tissue) to maintain healthy tissue. This may help to prevent further degeneration of tissues like nerves, bone/joints and blood vessels.

  • Treatment on the acupuncture points have excellent treatment outcomes.

WHAT IS LIGHT THERAPY

You are here

Although light (Photon) Therapy has been documented in medical literature as early as

1500BC, it was the Danish physician Nils Finsen, who is believed to be the father of

phototherapy that received a Nobel Prize for his work in 1903. Since then, numerous authors

have advocated treatment by phototherapy for many different diseases ranging from acne,

vitilago, jaundice in babies, wound healing and rheumatoid arthritis to name only a few.

 

Throughout the ages, sunlight (as the earliest form of phototherapy) has been known to have

both healing and wellness properties. Light is energy, and energy sustains life – it cannot be

destroyed, but it can be transformed into other forms.

Photizo Light Therapy harnesses the healing power of red and infrared light at specific

wavelengths & frequencies proven to be effective in accelerating natural healing of the body,

reducing swelling and inflammation, stimulating the immune system and relieving pain.

Cells that are injured can actually be rejuvenated by light.

Light Emitting Diodes (LED’s) have been around for a long time, but have only been introduced

as a legitimate therapy option in recent years. LED’s are similar to lasers in that as they can emit

the same light but differ in the way that the light energy is delivered. Lasers are focused-beam

single-wavelength light emitters that can be intense enough (a ‘hot’ laser) to burn/cut tissue or

‘cold’ enough to only have light therapy effects. LED’s do not deliver enough power to damage

the tissue, but they do deliver enough energy to promote natural self-healing and pain relief.

With a low peak power output, the LED’s provide a much gentler delivery of the same healing

wavelengths of light, as does the laser but without the same risk of accidental eye damage that

lasers do.

LED’s are merely convenient devices for producing light at specific wavelengths, and several

studies established that it is the light itself at specific wavelengths that is therapeutic in nature.

All biological systems have a unique absorption spectrum that determines what wavelengths of

radiation will be absorbed to produce a given therapeutic effect. The visible red and invisible

infrared portions of the spectrum have been shown to have highly absorbent and unique

therapeutic effects in living tissues.

LED’s also allow the light beam to spread out instead of being a pinpoint light beam. The

wide-angle diffusion of the LED confers upon it a greater ease of application, since light

emissions are thereby able to penetrate a broader surface area, and this results in a faster

treatment time for a given area than laser.

Infrared light is one of the safest therapies on the market today. When infrared light is

administered, it reduces sensitivity of neural pathways and causes the body to release

endorphins that provide a nontoxic, natural form of pain relief. Unlike ultrasound and electrical

stimulation, infrared technology is so gentle that patients can use it frequently without causing

more damage to injuries or other chronic pathologies.

Light therapy has broad treatment applications. Using these devices, wounds and other injuries

can heal faster and chronic conditions can be managed without the over use of pain and

anti-inflammatory medications within a few treatments.

People with back problems, nerve damage, muscular diseases, tennis elbow, burns and other

ailments have all shown marked signs of improvement using infrared light therapy.

The technology can also offset the long-term costs of surgery, pain medicines and physical

therapy visits. We will be seeing infrared light used for all kinds of healing and pain control in

the future. There will always be a place for medication and other modalities such as ultrasound

and electrical stimulation, but now doctors will also start using light for treatment.

The FDA has approved light therapy for the treatment of head and neck pain, as well as pain

associated with CTS (Carpal Tunnel Syndrome). In addition to these conditions, the literature

indicates that light therapy may be beneficial in three general areas:

1. Inflammatory conditions (e.g., bursitis, tendonitis, arthritis, etc).

2. Wound care and tissue repair (e.g., diabetic ulcers, venous ulcers, bedsores, mouth ulcer,

fractures, tendon ruptures, ligament tears, torn cartilage, etc).

3. Pain control (e.g., low back pain, neck pain, and pain associated with inflammatory conditions

—carpal tunnel syndrome, arthritis, tennis elbow, golfer’s elbow, post-herpetic neuralgia, etc).

More about the light wavelengths used in Photizo Light Therapy:

Visible Red Light: Light that lie within the visible spectrum, from 400nm (violet) to 700nm

(red). At a wavelength of 660 nanometers (nm – 1 nanometer is equal to one billionth of a meter

), penetrates tissue to a depth of about 8-10 mm (about 3/8″). It is very beneficial in treating

problems close to the surface such as wounds, cuts, scars, trigger points and acupuncture points,

and is particularly effective in treating infections.

Infrared Light: Light in the invisible spectrum (below red), from 700nm to 2,000nm. Infrared

Ray is not visible to the eye; it penetrates to a depth of about 30-40 mm (1.2″ to 1.4″), which

makes it more effective for bones, joints, deep muscles, bursa, etc. Although both red and

infrared wavelengths penetrate to different depths and affect tissues differently, their

therapeutic effects are similar.

BENEFITS OF LIGHT THERAPY

You are 1. PHOTIZO® STIMULATES THE PRODUCTION OF ATP IN THE MITOCHONDRIA

ATP is the major carrier of energy in the cells and is made by the cell’s power units, the

mitochondria. Without ATP, all cellular functions cease, and an increase in ATP allows the cells

to accept nutrients faster and to dispose of waste products by increasing the energy levels in the

cell. ATP provides the chemical energy that drives the chemical reactions of the cell. ATP

production is enhanced by light therapy, as light of a coherent, optimal wavelength energizes the

cytochrome b structure, allowing it to donate electrons to the electron transport chain at a

greater rate to increase ATP production.

2. PHOTIZO® REVERSES CELL DEATH PROCESS AND ENSURES CELL REPAIR

Following injury, a cell quickly approaches a point of no return, after which cell death is a

certainty. Photizo® light therapy, if administered immediately, can reverse most such cell death

processes by increasing ATP production.

3. CELLULAR REGENERATION

Once a cell has died, the body needs to make new cells to replace the compromised or damaged

cells. Light therapy prevents the overproduction of scar tissue and ensures quicker (up to 250X)

cellular regeneration. This is of major importance for accident victims to regain full

functionality. This accelerated “replacement” effect is seen in all cell types. Once cells have been

boosted with light therapy they can resume their normal functioning and make new blood

vessels, nerve tissue, bone cells, cartilage, etc. Light therapy does not cause cellular overgrowth

or cancer – cells are merely recharged to resume their normal functioning.

4. CLEARING OF INFLAMMATION AND INCREASED LYMPHATIC ACTIVITY

Local inflammation, although necessary, chokes a cell. Photizo® lessens inflammation and

ischemia, helping the cell to take up nutrients and oxygen from surrounding tissue and blood

vessels. Light therapy relieves ischemia and stops cell “choking”. Edema has two components

i.e. a liquid part, which can be evacuated by the blood system and a proteinaceous component

which is comprised of proteins which have to be evacuated by the lymphatic system. Research

has shown that the lymph vessel diameter and the flow of the lymphatic system can be doubled

with the use of light therapy. The venous and arterial diameters can also be increased. This

means that both components of edema can be evacuated faster to reduce swelling.

5. INCREASED IMMUNE SYSTEM ACTIVITY

Near-infrared light has been shown to increase immune system functioning. The exact

mechanism by which this occurs has not been eluciated, but several studies have shown a

systemic effect in subjects on whom light therapy was used. This means that local treatment of a

wound with Photizo® has a general immune enhancing effect.

6. PHOTIZO® INCREASES BLOOD SUPPLY

Increases blood supply to areas by stimulating the formation of new capillaries and blood

vessels to replace damaged ones. This speeds up the healing process by providing more oxygen

and nutrients needed for healing to the damaged cells. It also accelerates waste and debris

removal from the site of injury. Light therapy has a vasodilatory effect.

7. SYSTEMIC EFFECT AND REDUCED EXCITABILITY OF NERVOUS TISSUE

Photizo® assists in reducing the excitability of nerve tissue, thereby relieving pain. There is also

a sharp increase in endorphins and serotonin, providing a further systemic pain-relieving and

calming effect. This is of importance in acute and chronic pain relief.

8. PHOTIZO® REGULATES COLLAGEN PRODUCTION

Collagen is the most essential protein building block used to repair damaged tissues, and to

replace old tissues. By increasing and regulating collagen production less scar tissue is formed.

Photizo® does not result in an overproduction of collagen – rather, it helps the cell produce

optimal levels necessary for healing.

9.PROMOTES HEALING

Raises white blood cell counts and improves cell growth as well as stimulation and regulating

DNA, RNA synthesis and protein synthesis in cells.

10.PAIN RELIEF

The photons of light energy enter the body as negative ions. This calls upon the body to send

positive ions like calcium among others to enter the area being treated. These ions assist in

firing the nerves thereby relieving pain. Light therapy is successfully used in pain therapy,

dermatology and rheumatology with excellent therapeutic effects in the treatment of shoulder

pain, tendonitis, carpal tunnel syndrome, bursitis, tendonitis (elbow, shoulder or knee), ankle

sprain and temporo-mandibular joint (TMJ) dysfunction, neck and shoulder pain, arthritis,

sciatica, post-herpetic neuralgia, ulcers, fractures, soft tissue injuries, and nerve injuries.

11.DETOXIFICATION OR CLEARING TOXINS FROM THE BODY.

Light therapy stimulates metabolism, promoting the elimination of toxins that accumulate in

cells (i.e., poisons, carcinogenic heavy metals, toxic substances from food processing, lactic acid,

free fatty acids, and uric acids).

12.ACCELERATES METABOLISM

Thereby preventing or slowing down the aging process. Improves skin conditions (including

cellulite) and serves as an all-around beauty treatment.

Arthritis in canines

You are heArthritis could refer to:

–   osteoarthritis which is  joint degeneration caused by wear and tear or

–   Rheumatoid arthritis, a systemic disease that damages the capsule and bone in joints.

Both forms of Arthritis cause extreme pain and inflammation in joints and can damage joint

surfaces.  This joint damage causes further pain, inflammation and in the long term, bone

deformities.

The telltale sign of arthritis in older dogs is a reluctance to move about. As your

dog’s joints age, it will become more reluctant to run or play for long periods. It

won’t jump up and down stairs like it used to and, on rising in the morning, it

may be stiff and even limping. These changes almost always come on very

gradually. It is easy to ignore or not notice them at first. Slowing down isn’t only

related to your pet’s joints.

Large dogs, the ones that usually develop arthritis earlier, were bred to be very

pain-resistant and stoic. So they won’t let you know that they are in pain until

their arthritis problem is quite advanced.

As pets guard their sore joints, muscles and ligaments contract, decreasing the

joint’s range of motion. You may notice that your pet no longer jumps up on

sofas and chairs as it once did. One common symptom of age-related arthritis is

that joints tend to be stiffer and more painful after periods of rest and that pain

tends to work out during the day. By evening, your pet may be its old self again.

Arthritis problems tend to be worse in overweight pets. Some of their panting

after a long walk can be due to arthritis pain and not just the overheating and

out-of-shape problems that obesity produce. Cold days and dampness tend to

make the problem worse as well.

Photizo® Light Therapy provides light therapy treatment using LED’s that emit red and

infrared light which penetrates the skin to stimulate energy production and other metabolic

processes in affected areas. Infrared light is one of the only physical therapies that act to create

a healing effect. Cells that are injured can actually be rejuvenated by light.

ATP is the major carrier of energy in the cells and is made by the cell’s power units, the

mitochondria. Without ATP, all cellular functions cease, and an increase in ATP allows the cells

to accept nutrients faster and to dispose of waste products by increasing the energy levels in the

cell. ATP provides the chemical energy that drives the chemical reactions of the cell. ATP

production is enhanced by light therapy, as light of an optimal wavelength energizes the

cytochrome b structure, allowing it to donate electrons to the electron transport chain at a

greater rate to increase ATP production.

Light Emitting Diodes (LED’s) do not deliver enough power to damage the tissue, but they do

deliver enough energy to promote natural self-healing and pain relief. With its power output

optimized to be most effective, the LED’s provide a much gentler delivery of the same healing

wavelengths of light, as laser treatments, but without the risk of accidental eye damage that

lasers have.

The Photizo® provides one-touch, pre-programmed, effective dosages for the treatment of

many painful and inflammatory conditions and ensures that the effective amount of joules/

dosages for specified conditions are delivered precisely and effortlessly.

Photizo treatment will naturally reduce swelling and inflammation, relieve pain within minutes

and last for up to 6 hours.

Photizo stimulates the body’s own pain medication secretion (endorphins and serotonin) and

reduces the irritability and conduction speed of the pain nerves. It also effectively relieves the

inflammatory process and swelling that causes pressure on the pain conducting nerves that

trigger the pain. Muscle spasms that accompany pain, can also be reduced with Photizo

treatment, ensuring more joint mobility and flexibility.

Photizo stimulates the energy production inside the cell to cause the cell to function at optimum

levels, upholding optimum cartilage and bone cell functioning, slowing down the degeneration.

When treating regularly, this will slow down the degeneration.

Photizo treatment is effective, natural, and safe with no side effects or contra indications to

treat all the symptoms of arthritis. Photizo is easy to use, works of battery or mains power and

is the most precious gift for the arthritic sufferer!

Back and neck pain

You are here

Back pain can range from mild, dull, annoying pain, to persistent, severe, disabling pain in the

back. Pain in the back can restrict mobility and interfere with normal functioning and quality of

life.

Neck pain is pain that occurs in the area of the cervical vertebrae in the neck. Because of its

location and range of motion, the neck is often left unprotected and subject to injury.

Pain in the back or neck area can be acute, which comes on suddenly and intensely, or chronic,

which can last for weeks, months, or even years. The pain can be continuous or intermittent.

Even with today’s technology, the exact cause of back and neck pain can be found in few cases.

In most cases, back and neck pain may be a symptom of many different causes, including any of

the following:

  • Overuse, strenuous activity, or improper use such as repetitive or heavy lifting

  • Trauma, injury, or fractures

  • Degeneration of vertebrae, often caused by stresses on the muscles and ligaments

  • that support the spine, or the effects of aging

  • Infection

  • Abnormal growth such as a tumor or bone spur

  • Obesity due to increased weight on the spine and pressure on the discs

  • Poor muscle tone

  • Muscle tension or spasm

  • Sprain or strain

  • Ligament or muscle tears

  • Joint problems, such as arthritis

  • Smoking

  • Protruding or herniated (slipped) disk and pinched nerve

  • Osteoporosis and compression fractures

  • Congenital (present at birth) abnormalities of the vertebrae and bones

  • Abdominal problems, such as an aortic aneurysm
