Lasers in Physical Therapy

Both acute and chronic conditions can be treated successfully. As always, accurate diagnosis is important to ensure identification of the most appropriate treatment protocols - with LLLT the clinician can treat over plates, pins and patients with pacemakers. Healed tissue which has been treated with laser has been shown to have improved quality and tensile strength, thus minimising adhesions and scarring. Even pre-existing scar tissue has shown improvement after laser treatment.

Therapeutic lasers are also effectively used on trigger points in musculoskeletal treatments and can provide drug-free pain relief, being of particular aid in the treatment of arthritic conditions and neuralgic pain.

Arthritic Conditions

Laser therapy delivers pain-relief and addresses the inflammation in arthritic conditions.

With Rheumatoid arthritis, laser therapy influences small joints directly and large joints indirectly. It strengthens the antiphologistic processes and depresses the auto-immune response. The effects in the early stages of the condition can be impressive, but with chronic conditions, although pain is eased on treatment, longer treatment courses are necessary in order to make a substantive differences to the condition. It has been reported that 6 weeks can be a turning point. It also appears that adding laser therapy to prescribed medication gives improved results over medication alone.

With gout, attacks can be curtailed and the symptoms reduced. Laser therapy inhibits inflammation, eases pain, reduces swelling and joint tenderness.

In cases of osteoarthritis, laser therapy may slow down the degenerative process as well as ease acute symptoms. In the case of large joints such as the hip joint, the therapeutic effects of laser are brought on by an improvement and strengthening of the surrounding tissues. Laser therapy activates the microcirculation and the metabolism, prevents oedeme and triggers anti-inflammatory processes in the synovial membrane.
