Treatment of Drug-Resistant Fibromyalgia Symptoms Improve Using High-Intensity Laser Therapy: Journal Rheumatology International.

High-intensity laser therapy reduced pain and improved outcomes in a woman who has had fibromyalgia for a long time, a case study showed.

The study, “Treatment of drug-resistant fibromyalgia symptoms using high-intensity laser therapy: a case-based review,” was published in the journal Rheumatology International.

Clinical trials have suggested that low-level laser therapy, either alone or combined with fibromyalgia medication, can ease the disease’s muscle pain and stiffness. Doctors often use the therapy, also known as LLLT, to help heal wounds as well as alleviate chronic pain.

Studies that followed up the trial findings failed to show that LLLT can ease muscle pain, however.

High Intensity Laser Therapy (HILT) is continuing to show promise where Low Level Laser Fails (LLLT). We see this everyday in our practice.
