Low level lasers treat many things including all forms of arthritis, diabetes, Lyme Disease, blood disorders, and neurological disorders including Epilepsy, Parkinson's, et,
I have also been using it successfully for pain in general, as well as for osteoarthritis, bone pain, vision problems, thinning blood daily, brain-fog and neurological issues, and many other Lyme related symptoms. Magnesium/aloe vera gel compliment and enhance healing effects of the laser for joint and back pain. Treatment stimulates hair regrowth as well as removing wrinkles.
I sold a LLLtherapy laser to a client who uses it for vaginal dryness, she swears by it, once again enjoying her husbands attentions in the bedroom.
Benefits of Low Level (or Cold) Laser Therapy
What role can Low Level Laser Therapy play in treating inflammation and pain?
Low level laser therapy for rheumatoid arthritis
Low level laser therapy (LLLT) uses a light source that is thought to generate photochemical reactions in the cells and has been used as a non-invasive treatment for rheumatoid arthritis (RA) for about 10 years.
Five double-blind RCTs were included in the analysis. Quality scores ranged from one to five, the median score was three. All compared laser therapy with placebo. Trials varied in the number of laser treatments given, type of laser and wavelength used and outcome measures. Treatment sessions were two to three per week for three to four weeks for all trials except one, which treated patients for 10 weeks, three times a week. Pain was reduced from baseline in LLLT group but not in placebo group by 14 to 36% in three trials. Standardised mean differences (SMD) of pooled results found a statistically significant improvement in pain with LLLT, SMD -0.53 (95% CI: -0.85 to -0.22). Statistically significant improvements were also found for morning stiffness and tip to palm flexibility. All other outcomes were negative.
No adverse effects were reported and no evidence of harm was found.
The Effect of Low-Level Laser in Knee Osteoarthritis: A Double-Blind, Randomized, Placebo-Controlled Trial
PDF has before and after pictures
Our measurement results provide evidence that treatment
with the active LLLT probe resulted in significant improve-
ment for all evaluated parameters. In the placebo LLLT
group, we found nonsignificant changes in joint flexion and
pain. In the active LLLT group, we found significant im-
provement with regard to joint flexion, pain, and pressure
sensitivity in the active group in comparison with the pla-
cebo group at the times examined. The positive effects ob-
tained from active LLLT still persisted 2 mo after treatment.
The lack of effect on knee circumference was expected and
has not been demonstrated with other therapies. In the pla-
cebo LLLT group, three patients gave an account of an ex-
plicit reduction in their complaints, which is in line with
placebo improvement in studies of other KOA therapies.
It is a weakness of the study that we did not use other
validated tools for measurement of KOA pain and disability
such as the WOMAC questionnaire or the Lequesne index.
However, there is a high correlation between pain scores and
these tools, and there is little reason to believe that incor-
poration of these tools would have altered our results.
Over the years more than 100 double-blind, placebo-controlled studies have been
published on the effects of LLLT.
These articles also showed the favorable anti-inflammatory effect of LLLT. 11–13
Based on the objective, semi-objective, and subjective measurements after l
aser and placebo treatments in patients with seropositive rheumatoid arthritis,
Barabas came to the conclusion that laser treatment exerts a positive influ-
ence on the clinical signs and laboratory parameters of this disease. 14
Ohshiro also demonstrated a positive effect on microcirculation and verified
changes by thermography in parallel with the reduction of pain. 15
Low-Level Laser Therapy for Zymosan-Induced Arthritis in Rats: Importance of Illumination Time
It has been proposed for many years that low-level laser (or light) therapy (LLLT) can ameliorate the pain, swelling, and inflammation associated with various forms of arthritis. Light is thought to be absorbed by mitochondrial chromophores leading to an increase in adenosine triphosphate (ATP), reactive oxygen species and/or cyclic AMP production and consequent gene transcription via activation of transcription factors. However, despite many reports about the positive effects of LLLT in arthritis and in medicine in general, its use remains controversial.
