Health Alert: Laser Treatment for Carpal Tunnel Syndrome

By KYW NewsRadio PHILADELPHIA – Oct. 16, 2002 – Medical Specialist Stephanie Stahl reports there is a new alternative for those who suffer from Carpal Tunnel Syndrome.   Repetitive hand movement causes tendons in the hand and wrist to swell, pressing on a nerve. That pressure causes pain, numbness, and tingling, resulting in Carpal Tunnel Syndrome – a condition that has become the leading cause of disability in this country. “You’re constantly saying ‘what’s the matter with my hands?’ You’re shaking them, you’re rubbing them – just doing anything and everything you can to keep them awake,” explains local sufferer Kathy Kish. Kish says that is how she felt until she underwent high-tech treatment with the ML830® Laser. Dr. Mark Brown, a chiropractor, explains how it works: “It just sends bursts of laser light into the tissue and on a cellular level they respond like a bud that would open up to a flower – just speeds up the healing process.” Brown says the laser is unlike other lasers because it doesn’t burn the skin, and claims the treatment “works very, very well” yielding “fantastic results.” Kish agrees, telling Stahl the treatment enabled her to sleep through the night for […]

Low level laser therapy with trigger points technique: a clinical study on 243 patients

Simunovic Z Laser Center, Locarno, Switzerland. Journal of Clinical Laser Medicine and Surgery (Aug. 1996) 14(4):163-167.   Among the various methods of application techniques in LLLT (He-Ne 632.8 nm visible red or infrared 820-830 nm continuous wave and 904 nm pulsed emission) there are very promising “trigger points”, i.e., myofascial zones of particular sensibility and of highest projection of focal pain points, due to ischemic conditions. The effect of LLT and the results obtained after clinical treatment of >200 patients (headaches and facial pain, skeletomuscular ailments, myogenic neck pain, shoulder and arm pain, epicondylitis, tenosynovitis, low back and radicular pain, Achilles tendonitis) to whom the “trigger points” were applied were better than expected. It was also observed that rigidity decreases, mobility is restored (functional recovery), and spontaneous or induced pain decreases or even disappears, by movement. LLLT improves local microcirculation and it can also improve oxygen supply to hypoxic cells in the treated areas and can remove collected waste products. Normalization of the microcirculation interrupts the “circulus vitiosus” of the origin of the pain and its development (Melzak: muscular tension->pain->increased tension->increased pain, etc.). Results measured according to VAS/VRS/PTM: in acute pain, diminished >70%; in chronic pain >60%. Clinical effectiveness depends […]
