Paper Abstract

A number of reports and scientific publications, especially from recent years. prove that the application of lowintensity laser radiation (0.5up to 50 mW )haspositive both local and general influence in many diseases. In case of rheumatic diseases with inflammatory or degenerative processes taking place in joints, laser irradiaton applied as a supplementary method together with conventional methods is very promising.( 12,3,5,6.13,14.16,27) Detailed information on mechanisms and processes taking place in tissues, cells and cellular structures as well as the influence of low-intensity laser irradiation on biochemical processes was presented in the earlier paper which confirmed the results obtained by other scientists.
