The affect of MLS therapy on nerve conduction parameters in developing diabetic sensory peripheral neuropathy.

As the prevalence of diabetes mellitus continues to rise throughout the world, so do the complications associated with this disease. Neuropathy is a common and serious complication associated with diabetes. The peripheral sensory type of diabetic neuropathy (DPN) is implicated as a causal factor in the development of foot ulcerations, infections, and amputations. The loss of sensation in DPN has been shown to be a key component in the formation of foot ulcerations.

Effect of NIR laser therapy by MLS- MiS source against neuropathic pain in rats: in vivo and ex vivo analysis

Neuropathic pain is the result of damage (due to injury or disease) to the nervous system (including nerves), spinal cord and other central nervous system regions. Neuropathy patients suffer from spontaneous pain, allodynia (pain response to normally innocuous stimuli) and hyperalgesia (aggravated pain evoked by noxious stimuli) that interferes with their quality of life. Several experimental models have been developed to better understand neuropathy. The chronic constriction injury (CCI) model, developed by Bennett and Xie, is a widely used model of mononeuropathy that replicates in rats most of the symptoms occurring in patients.

Effect of IR laser on myoblasts: a proteomic study

The application of
laser therapy, either alone or combined with other treatments,
both pharmacological and instrumental, has its rationale in the
therapeutic effects that are attributed to laser radiation: analgesic,
anti-inflammatory, anti-oedema and ability to promote wound
healing and tissue repair.
