Interstitial Laser Therapy
Interstitial Laser Therapy is a minimal invasive treatment method using delicate laser fibers. These fibers are inserted through the skin into the tissue or joint. Direct irradiation on the spot increases effectiveness of the therapy and offers significant advantages when treating chronic pain disorders. As laser irradiation is not dampened by skin and muscle layers, a higher laser energy dose can be achieved in the target tissue. This makes success possible even in difficult and therapy-resistant cases.
The method of Interstitial Laser Therapy has proven its effectiveness with lumboischialgia, disc prolapses and spinal canal stenosis. Hurting and inflamed tissue is directly irradiated with laser light.
Patients suffering from joint diseases such as arthrosis of the hip and/or knee joint or the shoulder can profit from an Intraarticular Laser Therapy. In this cases, a sterile laser catheter is moved forward into the affected joint.
