CAN LASER HELP CANCER PATIENTS?

Low level laser therapy (LLLT) and cancer Studies have proven that low level laser therapy (LLLT) reduces the symptoms of oral mucositis, which are terribly painful mouth sores caused by the toxic effects of chemotherapy. However, unlike these previous studies, the researchers in this experiment wanted to assess if there was any improvement in the Quality of Life of patients receiving radiation and low level laser therapy (LLLT) for head and neck cancer. Low level laser therapy (LLLT) and Quality of life Sixty patients were studied and objective tests were performed to assess the patient’s Quality of Life during radiation treatment for cancer. Quality of Life was defined as a composite of many factors including pain, function of the head and mouth, anxiety, and physical appearance. Low level laser therapy (LLLT): Positive effects The results showed that there was a significant improvement in the Quality of Life of the patients who received low level laser therapy (LLLT). So, unlike our worries about low level laser therapy (LLLT) negatively influencing the lives of cancer patients, these newer studies are showing POSITIVE effects. To date, these positive studies have all used cool lasers, not hot ones. At the present time, because research […]

SKIN DISEASE: LASER IS AS GOOD AS CORTISONE

Laser therapy for skin disease Laser therapy as effective as topical steroids Thirty patients with oral lichen planus, a serious chronic skin disorder, were randomly allocated into two groups. The experimental group consisted of patients treated with low level laser therapy (LLLT). This study demonstrated that LLLT was as effective as topical steroids, but without any adverse effects! Laser therapy as an alternative treatment They suggested that low level laser therapy (LLLT) should be considered as an alternative treatment for lichen planus in the future.

A comparative pilot study of low intensity laser versus topical corticosteroids in the treatment of erosive-atrophic oral lichen planus. Photomed Laser Surg. 2011 Jun;29(6):421-5. PMID: 21214369. Abstract BACKGROUND AND OBJECTIVE: Treatment of oral lichen planus (OLP) remains a great challenge for clinicians. The aim of our study was to compare the effect of low intensity laser therapy (LILT) with topical corticosteroids in the treatment of oral erosive and atrophic lichen planus. MATERIALS AND METHODS: Thirty patients […]

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.
