Paper Abstract

Sixteen patients with knee pain, 17 patients with low back pain and 23 patients with vertebral pain were randomly allocated to multiwave laser therapy (MWL). The MWL was performed through an original method by a special designed laser system. The stimulation parameters adaptably optimized in a closed loop by measuring the reflected laser radiation. A control group of 11 patients was conventionally treated with a single infrared laser system. All patients were assessed by single observer using a visual analogue scale in a controlled trial. Our results indicate that the treatment with different laser wavelengths, different output power and frequencies, simultaneously applied through optic-fibers, has significant effects on the pain when compared with the common low laser therapy.
