The “at-home LLLT” in temporo-mandibular disorders pain control: a pilot study.
Jaw Joint Syndrome or Jaw Joint Disorder (TMJ/TMD) is a medical problem which is characterized by headaches, facial pain, and a creaking sound when moving the jaw and limited movement in the jaw. A clinical study conducted at Parma University in Italy, which examined the efficacy of B-Cure Laser in treating this syndrome, indicated significant effectiveness (over 50%) in reducing these pains within a week, and continued relief from pain over time.
Efficacy of low-level laser therapy in the management of neck pain: a systematic review and meta-analysis of randomised placebo or active-treatment controlled trials.
Neck pain is a common complaint, with only a partial remedy through medication and such as it is, it also entails side effects. This study which was published in the distinguished The Lancet medical magazine in 2009 reviewed and analyzed 16 case studies which included 820 patients, and found that Soft Laser is highly effective in treating neck pain. The results of the treatment ranged from being immediately effective and up to 22 weeks after onset of treatment.
Additive effects of low-level laser therapy with exercise on subacromial syndrome: a randomised, double-blind, controlled trial.
Shoulder pain is often the result of Impingement Syndrome which entails pressure on the shoulder tendons. This syndrome is usually treated with anti-inflammatory medication along with medical and rehabilitative exercise. This study examined if adding Soft Laser treatment to the medical exercise would improve results. The study found significant efficacy and considerable improvement of pain relief by combining medical exercise with Soft Laser treatment.
Acute Low Back Pain with Radiculopathy: A Double-Blind, Randomized, Placebo-Controlled Study.
Lower back pain is one of the most common of all health issues and in many cases it involves nerve pressure. This study found that Soft Laser used in combination with medication, achieved far greater efficacy in widening the range of motion, reducing the intensity of the pain and improving the patient’s quality of life, than the exclusive use of medication.
Effects of Low-Level Laser Therapy and Eccentric Exercises in the Treatment of Recreational Athletes With Chronic Achilles Tendinopathy.
This study examined the influence of integrating Soft Laser therapy with eccentric resistance exercise in the treatment of Achilles tendon. The study found that the Soft Laser accelerated healing of the inflamed tendon, since the patients who were given Soft Laser treatment gained relief after four weeks, while the control group, which was only treated with eccentric exercising, achieved the same results only after twelve weeks.
Effects of laser treatment on the expression of cytosolic proteins in the synovium of patients with osteoarthritis.
This laboratory research collected samples of synovial fluid from six patients suffering from osteoarthritis. These samples were irradiated with a Soft Laser beam. The research describes the effect of the laser on these samples, versus the identical samples which served as a control group without being irradiated with a Soft Laser beam.
The effect of low-level laser therapy on knee osteoarthritis: prospective, descriptive study.
