SI VOUS CONSULTEZ NOTRE SITE INTERNET… C’est que vous souffrez du syndrome du tunnel carpien ! [toc heading_levels=”2,3,4,5″] 1. QUELLES SONT VOS OPTIONS DE TRAITEMENT DU CANAL CARPIEN ? [table id=1 /] * Afin d’éviter les traitements inefficaces, il faut s’assurer, en présence des signes et symptômes d’une atteinte du nerf médian, que le diagnostic est précis et que le site et le mécanisme de compression du nerf médian ont été identifiés. Le chiropraticien possède toutes les connaissances nécessaires pour poser un bon diagnostic et orienter le patient vers les interventions les plus adéquates. 1.1 Risques possibles associés à une chirurgie Anesthésie: Au Canada, les chances pour une personne en santé de mourir à cause d’une complication de l’anesthésie sont de 1 : 100 000. référence 1 Infections nosocomiales (Ex. C. difficile): Au Québec, elles font chaque année environ 90 000 victimes et 4 000 décès. référence 2 Erreurs médicales: En moyenne, 112 patients québécois meurent chaque mois à la suite d’erreurs médicales. référence 3 Liste d’attente: Il peut s’écouler un an et demi à deux ans à partir du moment ou vous consulter un médecin pour la première fois, afin qu’il vous fournisse une prescription pour consulter un […]
Weintraub MI, MD, FACP Department of Neurology, Phelps Memorial Hospital, Briarcliff Manor, New York 10510, USA. PMID: 9236795 [PubMed – indexed for MEDLINE] Muscle Nerve (1997) 20:1029-1031. The peripheral nervous system is photosensitive, the scientific rationale for this study which determines the efficacy and safety to laser light exposure in 30 cases with CTS. Nine joules of energy over 5 points (7-15 treatments) reversed CTS in 77% of cases with three-fold normalization of CMAP. A photobiologic response was seen in 80%. This unique and novel approach is cost-effective and has a role in future management of CTS.

LLLT has been promoted as a highly successful method for treating medial and lateral epicondylitis. This clinical study assessed the efficacy of LLLT using trigger points (TPs) and scanner application techniques under placebo-controlled conditions. The study was completed at two Laser Centers in Locarno, Switzerland and Opatija, Croatia: a double-blind, placebo controlled, crossover clinical study. The patient population (n=324), with either medial epicondylitis (Golfer’s elbow; n=50) or lateral epicondylitis (Tennis elbow; n=274), was recruited. Unilateral cases of either type of epicondylitis (n=283) were randomly allocated to one of three treatment groups according to the LLLT technique applied: (1) Trigger points; (2) Scanner; (3) Combination Treatment (i.e., TPs and scanner technique). Laser devices used to perform these treatments were infrared (IR) diode laser (GaAIAs) 830 nm continuous wave for treatment of TPs and He-Ne 632.8 nm combined with IR diode laser 904 nm, pulsed wave for scanner technique. Energy doses were controlled and measured in Joules/cm2 either during TPs or scanner technique sessions in all groups of patients. The treatment outcome (pain […]
DETROIT, March 26, 2003 MicroLight’s patented “cold” laser treatment of Carpal Tunnel Syndrome has been featured in the Detroit Daily News, in an article by Maureen McDonald on repetitive stress ailments. Dr. Chadwick Smith and Dr. Wayne Good, both members of MicroLight’s Medical Advisory Board, are interviewed in the article. To read the complete text, click here.
Simunovic Z, Ivankovich AD, Depolo A. Department of Anesthesiology, La Caritá Medical Center, Laser Center, Locarno, Switzerland. email@example.com PMID: 11800105 [PubMed – indexed for MEDLINE] Journal of Clinical Laser Medicine and Surgery (2000) Apr;18(2):67-73 The main objective was to assess the efficacy of low level laser therapy (LLLT) on wound healing in rabbits and humans. The initial research was a randomized controlled animal study, to evaluate the effects of laser irradiation on the healing of surgical wounds in rabbits. The application of LLLT on the human body is analogous to those of similar physiologic structure in animal tissue. This study was continued on humans, 74 patients with injuries to the following anatomic locations: ankle and knee, bilaterally, Achilles tendon; epicondylitis; shoulder; wrist; interphalangeal joints of hands, unilaterally. All patients has surgery prior to LLLT. Two laser devices were used: infrared diode laser (GaAIAs) 830 nm continuous wave for treatment of trigger points (TPs) and HeNe 632.8 nm combined with diode laser 904 nm pulsed wave for scanning procedure. Both were applied as monotherapy during the study. Results were observed and measured according to these clinical parameters: redness, heat, pain, swelling and loss of function, and finally submitted to statistical […]
