High Intensity Laser Therapy in Knee Osteoarthritis:Comparison Between Two Different Pulsed-Laser Treatment Protocols

ABSTRACT

High intensity laser Therapy seems to be very effective in pain and function control in patients with Ko, due to its high intensity and to the depth reached by the laser ray, but the optimal dose is not known yet.

A previous research found a comparable efficacy to viscosupplementation in knee osteoarthritis ii –iii Kellgren stage, using the antalgic –antiphlogistic protocol (10 treatment sessions of pulsed high power laser, Nd:YaG).

The aim of this study was to compare the efficacy of two different HilT protocols to viscosupplementation in patients with symptomatic Ko.

58 out-patients with symptomatic Ko (ii-iii Kellgren-lowrence Scale stage) were enrolled and evaluated by woMac Scales, before treatment (t0), after treatment (t1) and after 4 months (t2). after randomization, the treatment consisted in viscosupplementation (4 Hyaluronic acid Key words: knee osteoarthritis, laser therapy, High intensity laser Therapy, HilTinfiltrations 1/week) for Group a, HilT antalgic treatment (10 sessions, three times a week for Group B, 5 sessions three times a week for Group c).

All the three groups showed a highly statistically significant improvement between t0 and t1 in woMac Scales, which was maintained at follow-up (t2). No side effect was found, neither in Group a nor in Group B, nor in Group c.

HILT treatment showed analogous results to viscosupplementation . Hil T seems a good medical instrument for pain control and for the improvement of patient’s quality of life, with dose-related effects. Click here to read more...

*Our two visit guarantee refers to our office policy, that if for any reason you do not see noticeable improvement in either your pain, function, or range of motion within the first two demo treatment sessions we will not take you on as a patient or recommend any further care in our office. We estimate our success rate is around 90% within one visit, so it is very rare that we have a patient not see improvement by the end of their 2nd treatment.

*The initial start up fee fee is based on an exam charge of $100 plus one set of x-rays if necessary at $65. If you elect to use health insurance the portion you pay may be lower than advertised. A report of findings is included in this exam charge. If our doctors feel that you do not need x-rays or x-rays of more than one body area are necessary, your cost may be different than that advertised. The two trial treatment sessions are for diagnostic purposes only and are included as part of the exam fee, therefore they will not be billed as a separate service. The trial treatment sessions will consist of one or more treatment options that our doctors think you will respond best to, delivered on two separate days. These prices are subject to change. All state and federal insurance and health care regulations and laws will be followed at all times by our clinic and staff.
