Osteoarthritis Knee Pain? New Study Reveals the Benefits of Cold Laser Therapy for Knee Pain Sufferers
Posted Jun 12 2010 9:16pm
Patients suffering with severe osteoarthritis knee pain will often try pain medications, knee injections, and even arthroscopic knee surgery just to get some relief. Recently a double-blind, randomized, placebo-controlled study was conducted to find out whether cold laser therapy actually helps decrease knee pain in patients suffering with moderate to severe osteoarthritis in the knee. Patients were separated into two groups. One group received cold laser therapy treatments and the other group received placebo cold laser therapy. The placebo group received treatments from a laser that did not work but had the same appearance as the laser that worked . Patients were examined before the study, two weeks into the study, immediately after the study and two months after completing the study.
The results of the study indicated the following:
The group treated with cold laser therapy felt a significant improvement in pain, the swelling in their knee reduced, their knee was less sore and their mobilitiy increased.
On the other hand, patients treated with the placebo laser did NOT experience any changes.
If you suffer from knee pain, swelling and tenderness due to osteoarthritis then consider getting cold laser treatments. Keep in mind that you want to get treated by a doctor who has experience in treating knee pain with cold lasers.
