Paper Abstract

The author presents the initial comparative investigations on treatment with laser beam, diadynamic current, and combined operation of diadynamic currents and classic massage. The investigations were performed in three groups on 78 patients. The obtained results indicate great therapeutic effectiveness of laser biostimulation, better than in other treatments and a larger scope of indications for treatment with that method. According to the modified Laitinen's scale the obtained improvement was from the range of two points, corresponding to strong pain, to 0.3 points, almost complete regression of the pain.
