La douleur du syndrome du tunnel carpien traitée avec le laser doux et la stimulation nerveuse à microampère transcutané: une étude contrôlée

Ce nouveau traitement conservateur (laser doux) est efficace dans le traitement de la douleur du syndrome du tunnel carpien.  Carpal tunnel syndrome pain treated with low-level laser and microamperes transcutaneous electric nerve stimulation: a controlled study  Naeser MA, Hahn K-AK, Lieberman BE, Branco KF PMID: 12098159 [PubMed – indexed for MEDLINE] Arch Phys Med Rehabil. 2002 Jul;83(7):978-88   Objective: To investigate whether real or sham low-level laser therapy (LLLT) plus microamperes transcutaneous electric nerve stimulation (TENS) applied to acupuncture points significantly reduces pain in carpal tunnel syndrome (CTS). Design: Randomized, double-blind, placebo-control, crossover trial. Patients and staff administered outcome measures blinded. Setting: Outpatient, university-affiliated Department of Veterans Affairs medical center. Participants: Eleven mild to moderate CTS cases (nerve conduction study, clinical examination) who failed standard medical or surgical treatment for 3 to 30 months. Intervention: Patients received real and sham treatment series (each for 3[ndash ]4wk), in a randomized order. Real treatments used red-beam laser (continuous wave, 15mW, 632.8nm) on shallow acupuncture points on the affected hand, infrared laser (pulsed, 9.4W, 904nm) on deeper points on upper extremity and cervical paraspinal areas, and microamps TENS on the affected wrist. Devices were painless, noninvasive, and produced no sensation whether they were […]

Le succès de la gestion des employées de bureau avec des traumatismes liés au stress répétitif ou le syndrome du tunnel carpien par une nouvelle modalité de traitement – le laser doux

Le laser a rapidement atténué la douleur et les picotements dans les bras, les mains et les doigts  et a diminué la douleur le long des apophyses épineuses impliquées. Successful management of female office workers with “repetitive stress injury” or “carpal tunnel syndrome” by a new treatment modality–application of low level laser. Wong E, Lee G, Zucherman J, Mason DT. Western Heart Institute, St. Mary’s Medical Center, San Francisco, CA 94117, USA. Int J Clin Pharmacol Ther. 1995 Apr;33(4):208-11. PMID: 7620690 [PubMed – indexed for MEDLINE]   Female office workers with desk jobs who are incapacitated by pain and tingling in the hands and fingers are often diagnosed by physicians as “repetitive stress injury” (RSI) or “carpal tunnel syndrome” (CTS). These patients usually have poor posture with their head and neck stooped forward and shoulders rounded; upon palpation, they have pain and tenderness at the spinous processes C5-T1 and the medial angle of the scapula. In 35 such patients we focused the treatment primarily at the posterior neck area and not the wrists and hands. A low level laser (100 mW) was used and directed at the tips of the spinous processes C5-T1. The laser rapidly alleviated the pain and […]

Effet du laser doux pour la polyarthrite rhumatoïde pour les patients atteints de du syndrome du tunnel carpien

En conséquence, nous suggérons que la thérapie au laser doux peut être utilisé comme une bonne méthode alternative de traitement des patients ayant une arthrite rhumatoïde qui souffrent également du syndrome du tunnel carpien. Effect of low level laser therapy in rheumatoid arthritis patients with carpal tunnel syndrome Ekim A, Armagan O, Tascioglu F, Oner C, Colak M. Osmangazi University, Department of Physical Therapy and Rehabilitation, Eskisehir, Turkey. PMID: 17629805 [PubMed – indexed for MEDLINE] Swiss Med Wkly. 2007 Jun 16;137(23-24):347-52   OBJECTIVE: the aim of the present study was to evaluate the efficacy of low level laser therapy (LLLT) in patients with rheumatoid arthritis (RA) with carpal tunnel syndrome (CTS). MATERIAL AND METHODS: a total of 19 patients with the diagnosis of CTS in 19 hands were included and randomly assigned to two treatment groups; LLLT (Group 1) (10 hands) with dosage 1.5 J/ per point and placebo laser therapy group (Group 2) (9 hands). A Galium-Aluminum-Arsenide diode laser device was used as a source of low power laser with a power output of 50 mW and wavelength of 780 nm. All treatments were applied once a day on week days for a total period of 10 days. Clinical […]

Retrospective study of adjunctive diode laser therapy for pain attenuation in 662 patients

Shigeyuki Nakaji et al Department of Hygiene, Hirosaki University School of Medicine, Aomori, Japan. PMID: 15782035 [PubMed – indexed for MEDLINE] Photomed Laser Surg. 2005 Feb;23(1):60-5   OBJECTIVE: The aim of this study was to assess the long-term effects of low-level laser therapy (LLLT) through a retrospective survey using questionnaires. BACKGROUND DATA: The use of LLLT for chronic pain attenuation has been reported in the international literature for over 20 years. METHODS: We used a series of diode laser systems in which the most effective wavelength was consistently found to be 830 nm with an output power in continuous-wave of 60 mW. Subjects were 1,087 patients treated by LLLT at the Shiroto Clinic from April 1992 to August 1995. Questionnaires were sent to subjects in September and October 1996. RESULTS: The reply rate was 60.9%, comprising 662 questionnaires (265 males, 397 females, mean age of 53.4 years). The total efficacy rating (excellent plus good) immediately after LLLT was 46.8% in men and 47% in women. At the time of the survey, this rose to 73.3% in men and 76.8% in women, with positive effects also recorded on psychosomatic factors such as well-being, physical energy, general fatigue, mental vigor, and emotional […]

How laser light helps cells repair themselves CAN gentle doses of laser light help cells to heal?

– THE NEW SCIENTIST, October 11-15, 2003 How laser light helps cells repair themselves CAN gentle doses of laser light help cells to heal? The technique is sometimes used to treat problems such as tinnitus and joint pain, but with no explanation for how these therapies work, there is scepticism over whether the effect is real. Now a physicist has come up with evidence that the physical forces generated by low-energy laser beams may switch on cells’ repair mechanisms.   This will support the growing body of evidence that laser therapy is beneficial. At the Joint International Laser Conference in Edinburgh, UK, last month, researchers reported promising results for fields as diverse as IVF and spinal injury. For example, rats with damaged spinal cords made a better recovery if their wound was illuminated with near-infrared laser light, reported Kimberly Byrnes of the Uniformed Services University of Health Sciences in Bethesda, Maryland. Her team found that in light- treated rats, levels of interleukin-6, which is involved in inflammation, were only 1 per cent of the levels in a control group of rats. But Byrnes does not know how to explain the result. .’There are a million different theories,” she says. One […]
