Navigating Osteoarthritis with Low-Level Laser Therapy: A Guide to Programming a Laser Treatment Regime

Osteoarthritis, a chronic condition marked by pain, stiffness, and reduced mobility, casts a long shadow over the lives of its sufferers. While the journey with osteoarthritis is challenging, the evolution of treatment strategies, particularly Low-Level Laser Therapy (LLLT) with devices like the Handy Pulse Laser, illuminates a path toward managing symptoms more effectively. In this article, we delve into how LLLT can be a beacon of hope for those grappling with osteoarthritis, focusing on treatment protocols and frequency to maximise its benefits.

Understanding Low-Level Laser Therapy

Low-Level Laser Therapy (LLLT) uses low-intensity lasers or light-emitting diodes (LEDs) to relieve pain, reduce inflammation, and promote healing at the cellular level. Unlike traditional treatments, LLLT offers a non-invasive, non-pharmacological, and side-effect-free method to manage osteoarthritis symptoms.

​​The Verdict of Science and Experience

Clinical trials, such as the pioneering study conducted by the University Technology Sydney, further validate the efficacy of LLLT in managing knee pain associated with osteoarthritis. These studies illuminate the path forward, offering evidence-based hope to those in need.

Tailoring Treatment to Your Needs

The Handy Pulse Laser provides a structured treatment regime that can be personalised to address the specific symptoms and areas affected by osteoarthritis with the lasers Three Treatment Modes

  • Variable Frequency Mode this mode  continuously changes pulsing between 1000-2500Hz  and is useful for All kinds of Pains - Also Useful for Sensitive Pain
  • 50Hz Frequency Mode for Acute Pain
  • 5Hz Frequency Mode for Chronic Pain

You can use this innovative device to manage osteoarthritis symptoms effectively with it’s pre-programmed 5 minute sessions which you can use and combine these sessions for a treatment. You can do several treatments every day such as 45 to 60 minutes of total treatments is not too much. Here’s how:-

- Ankle: Begin with two 5 minute sessions scanning (10 minutes) per treatment, using a Variable Mode (1000-2500Hz). From the second week onwards, adjust to a 50Hz  to deepen the treatment's impact.

- Elbow, Fingers, and Wrist: For joints like the elbow (including Tennis and Golfer’s Elbow), fingers (for arthritis or post-traumatic conditions), and the wrist, two sessions per treatment on a Variable Mode initially, followed by 50 Hz in subsequent weeks, can provide targeted relief.

- Knee and Hip Joint: Areas like the knee and hip joint, commonly affected by osteoarthritis, may require four sessions (20 minutes) scanning per treatment, with a shift from Variable Mode to a specific 50 Hz for the knee and 5 Hz for the hip to address chronic pain more effectively.

- Lower Back and Spine: For lower back pain and spine conditions, a combination of four stationary 5Hz sessions targeting the lower back and then the wider affected spine area with two scanning 50 Hz sessions. Scanning the hamstrings on 5Hz can also offer significant relief to lower back pain.

- Shoulder: front and back scanning for shoulder pain, transitioning from Variable Mode to the 5 Hz Mode, can help alleviate the headache symptoms and shoulder pain including pain that refers up the neck which is contributing to headaches.

Frequency of Treatments

The initial treatment phase with the Handy Pulse Laser involves a more frequent application, typically starting with the Variable Mode to gauge your response. As you move into weeks 2 and 3, the Treatment Mode Frequency adjustment to either 50 Hz or 5 Hz, depending on the area and severity of pain, which is designed to optimise therapeutic outcomes.

  • Week 1: Start with the Variable Mode program. However if it is a new Acute Pain injury use the 50Hz Mode immediately for a treatment instead of an ice pack.
  • Weeks 2 and 3: Shift to 50 Hz for most conditions to consolidate gains and 5 Hz for chronic pain conditions like hip and shoulder pain.
