Short-term effects of high-intensity laser therapy versus ultrasound therapy in the treatment of people with subacromial impingement syndrome: a randomized clinical trial

Randomized controlled trial of laser therapy vs. therapeutic ultrasound in 70 patients with clinically verified subacromial impingement syndrome. Laser therapy was shown to have significantly greater benefit than ultrasound in reducing pain and improving the articular movement, functionality and muscle strength of the affected shoulder.

Low-level laser therapy (LLLT; 780 nm) acts differently on mRNA expression of anti- and pro-inflammatory mediators in an experimental model of collagenase-induced tendinitis in rat

A rat model of induced tendonitis was used to evaluate the effect of laser therapy on inflammatory signaling.   The laser group had significantly lower mRNA for IL-6, COX-2 and TGF-β than control animals in both acute and chronic phases.  Laser therapy significantly reduced mRNA TNF-α only at the chronic phase. Laser therapy is effective for [...]
