Effects of class IV laser therapy on fibromyalgia impact and function in women with fibromyalgia

Author: Panton L, Simonavice E, Williams K, Majock C, Kim J-S, Kingsley JD, McMillan V, Mathis R

In this study, women with fibromyalgia syndrome were randomized to receive laser therapy treatment or sham heat gun treatment. Treatments were administered twice a week for 4 weeks at eight tender points across the neck, shoulders and back. Laser therapy treatment significantly improved upper body flexibility, fibromyalgia impact score and a composite measure of pain compared to the sham treatment.
