The purpose of current multicenter professional research was to assess to efficiency of Low Level Laser Therapy (LLLT) in the therapy of sporting activity- and also traffic-related soft tissue injuries compared to the sugar pill as well as classical physiotherapeutic treatments. This research study was performed in two facilities located in Locarno, Switzerland (n=94) and also Opatija, Croatia (n=38). Two kinds of irradiation techniques were utilized: (1) direct, skin get in touch with method for treatment of Trigger Points (TPs) where infrared diode laser (GaAIAs) 830 nm constant wave was used; and (2) scanning strategy for irradiation of larger area with use of Helium Neon (HeNe) laser 632.8 nm integrated with infrared diode laser 904 nm pulsed wave. Control team of individuals was treated with classical physiotherapeutic treatments. Outcomes were reviewed according to the professional specifications like: hematoma, edema, heat, pain and loss of function. All findings were scored as well as statistically analyzed according to the chi-square test. The outcomes have actually shown that the recuperation procedure was increased (35-50%) in 85% of people treated with LLLT contrasted to the control group of individuals, what is particularly crucial by professional athletes. The advantages of LLLT observed in this research study seem effective withdrawal of all medical signs, useful recovery, no dangers or side effects, painlessness, excellent toleration by any type of age and sex, expense benefit, etc. The benefits and results acquired proved once again the effectiveness of LLLT as brand-new as successful method the treatment of soft tissue injuries.

The aim of present multicenter professional research was to assess to effectiveness of Low Level Laser Therapy (LLLT) in the treatment of sport- as well as traffic-related soft tissue injuries contrasted to the placebo as well as classic physiotherapeutic procedures. Two types of irradiation strategies were made use of: (1) straight, skin call method for treatment of Trigger Points (TPs) where infrared diode laser (GaAIAs) 830 nm continuous wave was applied; as well as (2) scanning strategy for irradiation of larger surface area with usage of Helium Neon (HeNe) laser 632.8 nm integrated with infrared diode laser 904 nm pulsed wave.
