LLLT Using A Diode Laser In Successful Treatment Of A Herniated Lumbar/Sacral Disc, With Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) Assessment: A Case Report

Tatsuhide Abe Abe Orthopaedic Clinic Futuoka City Fukuoka Prefecture Japan X12'

A 40-year-old woman presented at the Abe Orthopaedic Clinic with a 2-year history of lower hack pain and pain in the left hip and leg diagnosed as a ruptured disc between the 5th lumbar/1st sacral vertebrae. The condition had failed to respond to conventional treatment methods including pelvic traction, nonsteroid anti-inflammatory drugs and aural block anaesthetic injections. MRI scans were made of the affected disc, showing it protruding on the left side through the aural membrane. The gallium aluminium arsenide (GaAlAs) diode laser (830 nm, 60 mW) was used in outpatient therapy. and after 7 months, the patient's condition had dramatically improved. demonstrated by motility exercises. This improvement was confirmed by further MRI scans, which showed clearly the normal condition of the previously herniated L5/S1 disc.

Clinical Application Of Gaalas 830 Nm Diode Laser In Treatment Of Rheumatoid Arthritis

Kanji Aoada, Yasutaka Ytani, Akira Sakawa and Akira Shimazu Department of Orthopaedic Surgery, Osaka City University Medical School, Japan

The authors have been involved in the treatment of rheumatoid arthritis (RA), in particular chronic poly-arthritis and the associated pain complaints. The biggest problem facing such patients is joint contracture, leading to bony ankylosis. This in turn severely restricts the range of motion (ROM) of the RA-affected Joints, thereby seriously restricting the patient's quality of life (QOL). The authors have determined that in these cases, daily rehabilitation practice is necessary to maintain the patient's QOL at a reasonable level. The greatest problem in the rehabilitation practice is the severe pain associated with RA-affected joints, which inhibits restoration of mobility and improved ROM. LLLT or low reactive level laser therapy has been recognised in the literature as having been effective in pain removal and attenuation. The authors accordingly designed a clinical trial to assess the effectiveness of LLLT in RA related pain (subjective self-assessment) and ROM improvement (objective documented data). From July 1988 to June 1990, 170 patients with a total of 411 affected joints were treated using a GaAIAs diode laser system (830 nm, 60 mW CIW). Patients' mean age was 61 years, with a ratio of males: females of 1: 5.25 (16%: 84%). Effectiveness was graded under three categories: excellent (remarkable improvement), good (clearly apparent improvement), and unchanged (little or no improvement). For, pain attenuation, scores were: excellent - 59.6%; good - 30.4%; unchanged - 10%. For ROM improvement the scores were: excellent - 12.6%; good - 43.7%; unchanged - 43.7 Yo. This gave a total effective rating for pain attenuation of 90%, and for ROM improvement of 56.3%.

Successful Management Of Female Office Workers With "Repetitive Stress Injury" Or "Carpal Tunnel Syndrome" By A New Treatment Modality Application Of Low Level Laser

E. Wong G LEE J. Zu CHERMAN and D. P. MASON Western Heart Institute and St. Mary's Spine Center St. Mary's Medical Center. San Francisco. CA. USA and Head and Neck Pain Center, Honolulu HI. USA

Abstract. 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 - Tl. The laser rapidly alleviated the pain and tingling in the arms, hands and fingers. and diminished tenderness at the involved spinous processes. Thereby, it has become apparent that many patients labelled as having RSI or CTS have predominantly cervical radicular dysfunction resulting in pain to the upper extremities which can be managed by low level laser. Successful long-term management involves treating the soft tissue lesions in the neck combined with correcting the abnormal head, neck and shoulder posture by taping. cervical collars, and clavicle harnesses as well as improved work ergonomics.

Recherche : Laser Therapy (LLLT) For Knee Osteoarthrosis

Infared Diode Laser In Low Reactive-Level Laser Therapy (LLLT) For Knee Osteoarthrosis

M. A. Trelles, J. Rigau, P. Sala, G. Calderhead and T. Ohshiro

Degenerative joint disease (DJD) in particular in the knee is difficult to, cure successfully, at present often requiring surgical intervention. In addition the chronic DJD patient often exhibits symptoms of both a physiological and psychological nature. A study is presented using high reactive-level laser therapy (LLLT) with an 830 nm infra red continuous wave gallium aluminium (or aluminium) arsenide (GaAlAs) diode laser with an output power of 60 mW. in light contact Laser therapy for a population of 40 patients (power density of approximately 3 W/cm²). Four points around the patella were irradiated for 60 s each (energy density of 18 J/cm² per point. total of 72 J/cm² per session) two sessions per week for eight weeks. Radiological, pain score and joint mobility assessments were made before the first session, immediately after at 4 months after the final LLT session. All other medication and physical therapy was discontinued at least 15 days prior to the first treatment session. Thirty-three patients (82%) reported significant removal of pain and recovery of articular joint mobility. The remaining seven patients felt there was no significant effect following LLLT and returned to their original pretherapy medication. The side effects were minimal. LLLT is concluded to be safe, effective and non-invasive alternative to conventional surgical and medical treatment modalities for DJD patients.

L'équipe Olympique Américaine utilise le laser doux

Le laser doux que nous utilisons impressionne le directeur du centre d'entrainement olympique américain. Ryan Edward III, directeur du département de médecine sportive pour les États-Unis, au centre d'entrainement olympique, note que les athlètes ont ressenti une forte diminution de leur douleur et  un augmentation de l'amplitude de mouvements lorsqu'ils sont traités avec notre laser doux, en particulier dans les phases aiguës des blessures. Il a également remarqué une réduction du temps de guérison pour une variété de conditions. Il considère que le laser doux a été un outil valable pour le traitement et la réadaptation au cours de la préparation et lors des jeux olympiques d'Athènes, contribuant au soulagement des douleurs des athlètes dans des moments critiques.
