Will laser therapy help with knee pain?
Laser therapy is an alternative treatment for
some types of pain, such as that often associated
with the knee. Research on laser therapy is
preliminary, and most insurers still consider it
to be experimental. However, some studies show it
can alleviate pain, including knee pain.
Laser therapy is also known as cold laser
therapy, class III laser therapy, or low-level
laser therapy (LLLT). Some early studies have
shown lasers might help wounds heal. If true,
this suggests they could help the body to repair
tissue damage caused by injuries and arthritis or
other diseases. However, the first studies of
cold therapy lasers were not controlled clinical
studies.
Laser therapy is relatively new, and researchers
do not yet know if it has any long-term risks.
Most studies have looked at short-term effects,
so it is possible that laser therapy could
trigger longer-term side effects that have not
yet been realized.

Fast facts on laser therapy for knee pain
  • Proponents of laser therapy say it offers both
    temporary pain relief and long-term healing.
  • Supporters of laser therapy suggest it could
    treat ailments as diverse as arthritis, chronic
    pain, joint disorders, and even addictions, such
    as smoking.
  • Research on pain in other areas of the body
    suggests that laser therapy can, as a minimum,
    offer temporary pain relief.
  • Unlike surgical lasers, cold lasers do not heat
    up the bodys tissues.

What is laser therapy?
Surgical lasers are increasingly common in
medicine and cut more precisely than traditional
surgical equipment, reducing the risk of injury
and helping speed up surgery. However, these
hot lasers can be dangerous when incorrectly
used. On the other hand, the cold lasers used
in LLT to treat pain are much weaker than
surgical lasers and cannot cut through or burn
skin. Proponents of laser therapy argue that the
skin absorbs very little light, allowing a laser
to penetrate deeply into tissue. This lets it
heal damaged tissue with no side effects. And
because the wattage is very low, there is no risk
of a burn.
