Author: Lee E, Dubois M, Calvino S, Malayil R Kim E, Shrikhande AA

Pilot study consisting of ten patients with at least one month of myofascial pain. Patients underwent two weeks of class IV laser treatment. A majority of the patients who underwent laser therapy showed improvement in pain assessment at 25 and 30 days post treatment. This study warrants a larger, controlled clinical study.
