Abstract
For the evaluation of the therapy effects the double-blind clinical trial followed by statistical analysis was performed. After statistical calculations it was stated that laser therapy with IR radiation has a significant influence on the decrease of the level of pain in the examined group of patients suffering from various locomotive diseases. The level of pain of patients undergoing laser therapy was statistically lower than the level of pain of patients undergoing placebo therapy. It means that laser therapy had statistically significant influence on the decrease of the level of pain. The same tests were performed for evaluation of movement range. Although placebo therapy contributes to the increase of the range of movement, the statistically significant influence was stated in case of the therapeutic group treated by laser.
