Laser therapy for fibromyositic rheumatisms

  [ 51 votes ]   [ Discuss This Article ]
By Longo L, Simunovic Z, Postiglione M, Postiglione M • www.ProHealth.com • March 15, 1997


BACKGROUND AND OBJECTIVES: The objectives of this study is to treat
the cases of fibromyositic rheumatisms untreatable with other
therapies. The authors chose defocalized laser beams because
some experimental studies had showed their analgesic and
anti-phlogistic effects on experimental phlogosis. Since 1980
non-surgical laser effects were often noncomparable because of
the lack of common treatment protocols. This summarizes
fifteen years of clinical observations as to the purpose of
identifying some indications on laser treatment of defined
pathologies included in fibromyositic rheumatism.

STUDY DESIGN/MATERIALS AND METHODS: 846 patients with
different types of fibromyositic rheumatisms were submitted to
defocalized laser therapy from 1980 to 1995. Criteria for
selection included age, sex, and pathological pictures.
Control groups were used to compare results with those of
traditional methods. Diodes and CO2 lasers were employed, to
exploit the photothermic and photochemical effects of the
laser radiations to the fullest extent.

RESULTS: On the whole, results were positive in comparison with other
methods both as regards recovery time and persistence of results.
Results were evaluated on the basis of subjective (such as local pain)
and objective (hypomotility, phlogosis) criteria.

CONCLUSIONS: Results obtained (approximately 2/3 of the patients
benefited from the treatment) indicate that there are greater advantages
in use of laser over other presently available methods.
Standardalization of treatment protocols deserves further
studies.
