LASER IS MORE EFFECTIVE AT HEALING THAN ULTRASOUND!

Laser therapy vs ultrasound Laser therapy more effective In this study, animals were treated with either low level laser therapy (LLLT) or Low Intensity Pulsed Ultrasound (US). Each animal received six sessions for damaged muscle tissue. Laser therapy vs ultrasound The researchers concluded that US helped soft tissue injuries less effectively than low level laser therapy (LLLT). This study revealed that both LLLT and US therapies have positive effects on muscle metabolism after an injury, but LLLT produced a better response.

Comparative effects of low-intensity pulsed ultrasound and low-level laser therapy on injured skeletal muscle. Photomed Laser Surg. 2011 Jan;29(1):5-10. PMID: 21166589. Abstract OBJECTIVE: The main purpose of this study was to compare the effects of low-intensity pulsed ultrasound (US) and low-level laser therapy (LLLT) on injured skeletal muscle after cryolesion by means of histopathological analysis and immunohistochemistry for cyclo-oxygenase-2 (COX-2). BACKGROUND AND METHODS: Thirty-five male Wistar rats were randomly […]

LASER IMPROVES SPORTS PERFORMANCE!

Laser therapy and sports injuries Laser therapy optimizes muscle performance Low level laser therapy (LLLT) has been documented to optimize human muscle performance with physical exercise. This study tested the effect of Low level laser therapy (LLLT) on physical strength training compared with strength training only. Laser therapy increases strength The study involved 36 healthy, fit men using an 808 nm continuous wavelength laser, much like the Apollo. The LLLT men showed an increase of 55% in strength on isokinetic dynamometry, significantly higher than the increases with exercise alone. Soon we may see LLLT commonly used to improve sports performance.

Abstract Recent studies have investigated whether low level laser therapy (LLLT) can optimize human muscle performance in physical exercise. This study tested […]

ARE LASERS AS EFFECTIVE AS SPLINTS FOR TMJ?

Laser therapy and TMJ Laser therapy reduces myofacial pain The present study was designed to compare the effects of low-level laser therapy (LLLT) with occlusal splints in patients with myofascial pain of the jaw and face. Low-level laser therapy LLLT was applied to patients 2 times per week, for a total of 10 sessions. Patients in the control group were instructed to wear splints 24 hours per day for 3 months. Laser therapy as effectice as occlusal splints When the groups were compared with each other, there were no significant differences between the groups! In both groups, muscle pain and jaw range of motion improved significantly. The dentists concluded that LLLT applied twice per week for five weeks was as effective as occlusal splints used 24 hours per day for 3 months!
