1 June 1992 Low-energy laser biostimulation therapy of musculoskeletal disorders: clinical study
Author Affiliations +
215 patients (86 males and 129 females, average age 60.3 years) suffering from musculoskeletal and neuromuscular disorders, both chronic and acute, were treated by low energy lasers. Most patients failed to improve in spite of the fact that different conventional treatment modalities were implemented. Some of them were unable to tolerate drugs because of allergy or gastrointestinal intolerance. The photobiostimulation system FABULIGHTTM (IMM Inc., Canada) with adjustable output parameters for both red and infrared wavelength was used. Different modalities of LELBT were used: local and generalized stimulation of tender points and affected areas. Stiffness, swelling, range of motion and pain were assessed. 65% of symptoms improvement was obtained in average.
