Cold laser- low level laser therapy- Knee pain

Knee pain is a common injury, from acute or traumatic injuries such as from sports, motor vehicle accident or a fall. It can also be a result of a specific condition such as osteoarthritis, or other inflammatory changes such as bursitis or a tendinopathy. There can also be referred pain from structures in the lumbopelvic spine, hip and ankle. The knee is made of various structures. Bones include; femur (thigh bone), tibia (shin bone), fibular and patella (knee cap). Cartilage; medial and lateral meniscus. Ligaments; anterior and posterior cruciate ligament, medial and lateral collateral ligament. Tendons; quadriceps tendon, patella tendon. There is also surrounding musculature, arteries, veins, nerves, synovial fluid and bursae’s. A common presentation of knee pain with age is osteoarthritis. The patient with osteoarthritis experiences stiffness and knee pain that is worse with prolonged sitting or walking, they are older and usually have a history of trauma or surgery to the knee. Swelling is usually another presenting symptom in knee OA. Low level laser therapy has been shown to decrease pain and improve quality in life in patients with knee pain, according to the study “Adjunctive use of combination of super-pulsed laser and light-emitting diodes phototherapy on non-specific knee pain: double-blinded randomized placebo-controlled trial”. Cold laser therapy can be used for patients to help reduce inflammation, swelling and pain, improving function.
