Intra-Articular Laser Therapy
Intra-Articular Laser Therapy
Intra-articular laser therapy is a type of laser treatment that is used primarily in repairing damaged joints through the application of advanced catheter technology. These catheters utilize red, blue, and green lasers that emit low-level laser lights to deal with inflamed tissues. They also allow for direct irradiation with dysfunctional tissues in the nerve, cartilages, or bones. When combined with injections or other therapies, intra-articular laser treatment can be particularly effective in mitigating recurring hip pain.

Intra-articular laser therapy allows laser light to be applied directly to the body, overcoming the ‘skin barrier’ that absorbs large amounts of photons emitted by the laser. It is now possible to deliver the unique effects of blue and green light directly to the body, which are normally absorbed by the skin’s surface.
Sterile catheters are therefore an essential technical component for the treatment. An interstitial needle connected to the laser fiber is inserted into the body. Light is then transmitted through the interstitial needle from the laser fiber into the body.

Intra-articular Laser Therapeutic Wavelengths
Different laser wavelengths have different effects on the human body. For example, red lasers are used to promote cell production and microcirculation while speeding up the healing of tissue damage. Green lasers are used to reduce inflammation and pain as the infrared laser light penetrates deep into the tissue, causing the cells to vibrate and producing a warming effect. Blue lasers are effective in decreasing acute pain right away. They ae also efficient in healing wounds and have powerful anti-inflammatory properties. Depending on your condition, you might be required to combine it with other injections or therapies.
Conditions treated with Intra-articular Laser Therapy
Intra-articular laser therapy is an effective treatment for osteoarthritis – the most common chronic condition of the joints, which particularly occurs in the knees, hips, and ankle joints. It’s also used in treating other issues that affect the shoulder such as chronic shoulder syndrome.
Overall, intra-articular laser treatment has been used by a variety of medical professionals in safely contained spaces for recovery. The success rate is fairly high and it can be performed relatively quickly with some promising results.
