Chiropractic Research Review

Laser Treatment Better than Physiotherapy?

Laser treatment is now competing with established methods of conventional physiotherapy. This study discusses the potential differential indications of laser acupuncture and laser irradiation (laser shower).

Comparisons are made between the therapeutic results of laser acupuncture, laser irradiation and selected physiotherapeutic methods in treatment of contused shoulder trauma, myogelosis, partial paresis of the circumflex nerve, humeroscapu-lary periarthropathy and cervical syndrome. Both therapeutic forms (laser acupuncture and laser showers) show sufficient to good dose-dependent results, in some cases better than physiotherapy. The clinical findings and potential differential indications of laser acupuncture or laser irradiation are discussed.
