LASER THERAPY

Clinical Evidence

"Our earliest research revealed and later clinical studies confirmed that high immediate and short-term pain reliefs are extremely important for good outcome of the entire course of treatment. "

Photonic & Laser Therapy LEP2000 produced ~40% chronic pain relief in joints after 2 treatments while Ultrasound did not differ from Placebo

Double Blind, Controlled, Randomized, Clinical Trial

The goal of the study was to evaluate the efficacy of Low Energy Photonic and Laser Therapy (LEPT) using LEP2000 Photonic Therapy System for relief of joint pain as compared to placebo LEPT and therapeutic ultrasound. 75 subjects (43 females and 32 males, mean age 47.5 years) suffering from joint pain (mean duration 9.4 months) were randomized to receive one of the following treatments: 1. LEPT, Doctors Salansky Protocol; 2. Placebo LEPT; 3. Therapeutic Ultrasound.

LEPT. Doctors Salansky Protocol, was administered in accordance with the following protocol: first, 3 most painful areas of the joint were treated using the LEP2000 LED module (wavelength 880 nm, total power 128mw, frequency 100 Hz) for 200s; after that, 10 most painful points were treated with the Laser LD100 (wavelength 830 nm, power 90mw) for 10s per point.
  • Only 2 sessions of LEPT LEP2000 resulted in statistically (p=0.002) and clinically significant pain relief by 40.8% (see Fig. 1).
  • Pain relief (by 23.9%) induced by LEP2000 after a single treatment was also found to be more effective than placebo (p<0.05). Moreover, pain relief after a single treatment lasted until day 3 after the first treatment (by 20.6%, p<0.001).
  • LEP2000 treatment is more effective when measured after second LEPT treatment than when measured after first LEPT treatment (p<0.01). This result suggests a cumulative effect after 2 consecutive LEPT treatments.
  • LEP2000 is significantly more effective for pain relief than ultrasound (p<0.003) while ultrasound was not different from placebo.
