Lasers in Medical Science recently (2014) released a study on the long-term effect of High Intensity Laser Therapy for lower back pain relief.
The article entitled Long-Term Effect Of High-Intensity Laser Therapy In The Treatment Of Patients With Chronic Low Back Pain: A Randomized Blinded Placebo-Controlled Trial, written by M. Alayal, A. Atya, M. Ali and T. Shosha, compares the effects of High Intensity Laser Therapy, and High Intensity Laser Therapy combined with exercise against a placebo laser and a placebo laser combined with exercise in the treatment of chronic lower back pain. To make this comparison, the researchers measured the various outcomes of lumbar motion, pain levels (as noted by a visual analog scale) and the participant’s answers to the functional disability questionnaire in contrast to each participant’s baseline evaluation of the same measures.
The research found that the participants who utilized both High Intensity Laser Therapy and exercise in their daily lives, were able to significantly increase their range of motion and decrease their overall levels of pain.
This research once again validates our use of High Intensity Laser Therapy at Integrated Pain Solutions. We’ve known for quite a while just how successful High Intensity Laser Therapy can be, and we are thrilled that the medical world continues to take notice.
If you’re ready to give yourself a serious chance at lower back pain relief, trust the research. Give us a call at 800-244-PAIN (7246) today; we are here to help you find relief.
