HILT for subacromial impingement syndrome

The short-term effectiveness of high-intensity laser therapy (HILT) was investigated as a retrospective case series for the treatment of the pain and disability associated with subacromial impingement syndrome (SAIS). Conclusions: high-intensity laser therapy was found to be effective in the short term in the treatment of pain and disability in patients with subacromial impingement...

810 nm vs 904 nm light transmission

The purpose of this study was to investigate light transmission of continuous wave (CW) 810 nm wavelength light and 904 nm wavelength superpulsed light through skin and gastrocnemius muscle and skin only using an anesthetized Sprague-Dawley rat model. The percentages of light transmission (fluence rate) through muscle and skin were 7.42% (810 nm wavelength) and 4.01% (904 nm...

LLLT in postexercise skeletal muscle recovery

A study about LLLT in postexercise skeletal muscle recovery and performance concluded that pre-exercise low-level laser therapy, mainly with 50 J dose, significantly increases performance and improves biochemical markers related to skeletal muscle damage and inflammation. http://online.liebertpub.com/doi/pdfplus/10.1089/pho.2015.3992

Laser Therapy for Chronic Osteoarthritis of the Knee

Effect of Laser Therapy on Chronic Osteoarthritis of the Knee in Older Subjects. This research article that was published in Journal of Lasers in Medical Sciences in 2016 concluded that addition of Low-Level Laser Therapy to exercise training program is more effective than exercise training alone in the treatment of older patients with chronic knee Osteoarthritis and...
