Laser Research

A Pilot Study to Determine the Efficacy of Therapeutic Class IV Laser Treatment on Local Muscle Spasm Associated with Myofascial Pain Syndrome in Patients with Neck Pain

  • Class IV laser therapy showed a majority of patients who underwent treatment reported improvement, (reduced pain and trigger points)

 

Low-level laser therapy as a treatment for chronic pain

  • it is clear that LLLT may be beneficial for many individuals suffering from pain, regardless of the condition that is causing it. ( reduces pain)

The efficacy of low-power lasers in tissue repair and pain control: a meta-analysis study.

  •  laser phototherapy is a highly effective therapeutic armamentarium for tissue repair and pain relief.( Reduces pain and improves mobility)

​Meta-Analysis of Pain Relief Effects by Laser Irradiation on Joint Areas

  •  The review shows that laser therapy on the joint reduces pain in patients (reduces pain)

A systematic review of low level laser therapy with location-specific doses for pain from chronic joint disorders.

  • Low level laser therapy with the suggested dose range significantly reduces pain and improves health status in chronic joint disorders. (reduces pain and imporoves healing)

Class IV Laser Therapy Interventional and case reports confirm positive therapeutic outcomes in multiple clinical indications. (Golfers and Tennis Elbow)

  • Deep Tissue Laser Therapy System applied using scientific treatment protocols provides demonstrated clinical therapeutic benefits to patients in a clinical setting for a wide range of both acute and chronic diseases, regardless of age or gender. (reduces pain and imporoves healing)

Laser in the treatment of hypertrophic burn scars.

  • It was noted that after laser treatment, satisfactory results were achieved in 72% of cases. ( Prevents scar formation)

The effectiveness of therapeutic class IV (10 W) laser treatment for epicondylitis.

  • These findings suggest that laser therapy using the 10W class IV instrument is efficacious for the long-term relief of the symptoms associated with chronic epicondylitis. (Reduces pain and inflammation)

Effects of Class IV laser therapy on fibromyalgia impact and function in women with fibromyalgia.

  • This study provides evidence that LHT may be a beneficial modality for women with FM in order to improve pain and upper body range of motion, ultimately reducing the impact of FM. ( Reduces pain and improves mobility)

A Pilot Study to Determine the Efficacy of Therapeutic Class IV Laser Treatment on Local Muscle Spasm Associated with Myofascial Pain Syndrome in Patients with Neck Pain

  • Class IV laser therapy showed a majority of patients who underwent treatment reported improvement, as assessed by VAS, Global impression, and MPDD trigger points detection. This encouraging pilot study justifies further studies with larger populations and addition of control groups for laser therapy as a potential non-pharmacological and non-interventional adjunct treatment, for patients with chronic myofascial pain. (Reduces pain)

In vitro and in vivo optimization of infrared laser treatment for injured peripheral nerves.

  • This study establishes that infrared light with optimized parameters promotes accelerated nerve regeneration and improved functional recovery. ( Improves nerve growth)

Low-level laser therapy decreases renal interstitial fibrosis.

  • LLLT had a protective effect regarding renal interstitial fibrosis. It is conceivable that by attenuating inflammation, LLLT can prevent tubular activation and transdifferentiation, which are the two processes that mainly drive the renal fibrosis of the UUO model. ( Prevents scar formation)

Does phototherapy enhance skeletal muscle contractile function and postexercise recovery? A systematic review.

  • Phototherapy administered before resistance exercise consistently has been found to provide ergogenic and prophylactic benefits to skeletal muscle by delaying the onset of fatigue, reducing the fatigue response, improving postexercise recovery, and protecting cells from exercise-induced damage. (Improves exercise performance and recovery)

Effect of red and near-infrared wavelengths on low-level laser (light) therapy-induced healing of partial-thickness dermal abrasion in mice.

  • Low-level laser (light) therapy (LLLT) promotes wound healing, reduces pain and inflammation, and prevents tissue death.(Improves healing)

Transcranial infrared laser stimulation produces beneficial cognitive and emotional effects in humans.

  • Transcranial laser stimulation could be used as a non-invasive and efficacious approach to increase brain functions such as those related to cognitive and emotional dimensions. Transcranial infrared laser stimulation has also been proven to be safe and successful at improving neurological outcome in humans in controlled clinical trials of stroke. (Improves brain function)

​Near-infrared photonic energy penetration: can infrared phototherapy effectively reach the human brain

  • Near-infrared light in the power range of 10-15 W at 810 and 980 nm can provide fluence within the range shown to be biologically beneficial at 3 cm depth ( high power penetrates deeper)
