Laser Treatment for Frozen Shoulder

Approximately 2-5% of the population will experience “Frozen Shoulder” in their lifetime.1
Frozen shoulder, also known as adhesive capsulitis, is a common condition in which the articular shoulder capsule (a sac of ligaments surrounding the joint) swells and stiffens, restricting its mobility. It typically affects only one shoulder, but one in five cases affect both.

You’re more likely to suffer from frozen shoulder if you’re female and over 40 years of age.

  • Age – being over 40 years of age.
  • Gender – 70% of people with frozen shoulder are women.
  • Recent surgery or arm fracture – immobility of recovery may cause the shoulder capsule to stiffen.
  • Diabetes – two to four times more likely to develop frozen shoulder for unknown reasons; symptoms may be more severe.
  • Having suffered a stroke.
  • Hyperthyroidism (overactive thyroid).
  • Hypothyroidism (underactive thyroid).
  • Cardiovascular disease (heart disease).
  • Parkinson’s disease 2

image1 (74)

 

Low back pain is one of the most common musculoskeletal disorders and effects many people at one point or another throughout their lives.

Bioflex Laser published a study whose primary purpose was to investigate the therapeutic effect of low intensity laser therapy (LILT) on this disorder.

METHODS: -Sixty patients are randomly divided into three groups, one received low intensity laser therapy (LILT), the second group the low intensity laser and physical exercises simultaneously and the other the laser placebo and physical exercises simultaneously. Laser therapy was performed for 6 weeks, two sessions per week. Pain and disability were measured and compared, at 0, 6 and 12 weeks after the treatment in the three groups.

RESULTS: -Patient’s disability in groups 1 and 2 at week 6 showed a significant improvement compared to the beginning of the study. (Group I, P=0.02, P=0.012, group II, P=0.031, P=0.042, respectively).The rate of pain and disability at the week 12 improved significantly compared to the week 6 of the study in each group of 1 and 2. (Group I, P=0.002, P=0.02, group II, P=0.043, P=0.02, respectively). In the comparison of the groups at week 12, the values of pain (P=0.02) and disability (P=0.03) had improved in group I (laser therapy accompanied with physical exercise).

CONCLUSION: – BioFlex Results revealed that laser therapy accompanied with physical exercise can be the most effective way for improving the chronic back pains including pain relief and reduction of disability in the patients.
