Neck/Back Pain and Laser Therapy
Laser therapy has been used by clinics for a long time and is a popular method of treatment. There are lightforce ex class iv lasers for sale here if you’re interested in investing in them for your clinic. They allow you to provide better treatment on a wide range of issues.

BACKGROUND AND OBJECTIVES:
The efficacy of low level laser therapy (LLLT) in myofascial pain syndrome (MPS) seems controversial. Our aim was to clarify the effect of LLLT in MPS by using algometry and thermography.
STUDY DESIGN/MATERIALS AND METHODS:
Sixty-two patients with MPS having an active trigger point in the neck or upper back region were randomly divided into two equal groups according to therapy applied (group 1: LLLT + stretching exercises, group 2: stretching exercises alone). The outcome measures were pain measured with visual analogue scale (VAS), algometry on the trigger point, algometric difference, thermographic difference, and thermal asymmetry. Comparison was made within and between the groups pre- and post-therapeutically and 3 weeks after therapy.

We purchased my K-laser 2 years ago. Wouldn’t practice without it now. I use it before and after PRP and prolotherapy, for arthritis, trauma, sports injuries, carple tunnel syndrome, tendonitis, sprain, strains, skin conditions such as herpies/shingles, and wounds. Anybody doing regenerative medicine without a laser is really missing a big area of medicine. We are proud to be one of the few clinics to utilize all area’s of regenerative modalities!
