Paper Abstract

The current therapy methods for prostatitis, and its advantages and disadvantages were discussed in this paper. Two kinds of noninvasive therapy method were presented based on the combination of diode laser technique with traditional Chinese acupuncture and the interaction between low energy laser and biotissue. Firstly, dual-wavelength diode laser with the wavelength of 650nm and 810nm, respectively, were used to irradiate the acupoints. Diode laser with the wavelength of 650nm has remarkable biological stimulation effect, while 8lOnm diode laser mainly has thermal effect. Secondly, a low frequency pulse electromagnetic field is also applied when the targets are irradiated by the diode laser in the application of laser-electromagnetism therapy. Finally, the laser and electromagnetism parameters, as well as therapy methods and instrumental design are also presented in detail.
