Low-level laser therapy is beneficial for low back pain, researchers say. The new study involved people with chronic low back pain either exercising, using low-level laser, or both for 6 weeks. While results were similar among all groups at 6 weeks, the low-level laser-plus-exercise group had much better results at 12 weeks.
I’ve used low-level laser in my office for nearly 2 years, and am constantly pleased with the results I get. It’s too bad they didn’t use chiropractic in this study—it would have blown them away—read an overview of the research on chiropractic and low back pain here.
