Paper Abstract

In this paper the authors present their own experience in lasertherapy of motional system overloading syndromes in 522 patients, in which laser radiation was used as monotherapy. IR semiconductor lasers and He-Ne laser were used. Each irradiation procedure was performed in 2 stages: 1) the scan of painful region; 2) irradiation of trigger points. As a result of 10-25 irradiations the improvement was obtained in 61-87 percent of patients and it was significantly better as compared to the control group in which sham-irradiation was made. On the basis of obtained results one may conclude that lasertherapy is a very useful, assisting method in treatment of motional system overloading syndromes. The therapeutical effects of the method are related to analgesic and antiphlogistic action of laser radiation.
