Phototherapy promotes regeneration and functional recovery of injured peripheral nerve

Author: Anders JJ, Geuna S, Rochkind S

This review presents several studies that evaluate the efficacy of laser therapy to promote regeneration and recovery of injured peripheral nerve.  Studies include a crush injury model of the rat facial nerve, injured rat sciatic nerve and regeneration after surgical repair.  All studies demonstrated the efficacy of laser therapy for treating nerves and the technique was identified as “one of the most promising therapies to date” for these difficult pathologies.
