Epicondylitis is a form of musculoskeletal disorder that refers to an inflammation in the lateral or medial epicondyle. In some variations, it is also known as tennis elbow, golfer’s elbow or mouse arm. Tennis elbow is caused by inflammation in the elbow and forearm, resulting in pain and soreness. The pain originates in the bone in the outer part of the elbow (lateral epicondyle) where the muscles that bend the hand backwards and stretch the fingers are attached. It is most often caused by repetitive stress and overuse at the muscle-tendon junction, forceful, repetitive, or akward motions, such as [...]



Different types of wounds, such as leg ulcers, bed sores, and wounds from surgery, can all be treated with laser therapy. As early as the 1960’s, during experiments with mice, scientists discovered by coincidence that low doses of laser had healing effects on wounds. I took care of a gentleman, 80 years old, who had taken a fall and hurt his right shoulder. Initially, I administered traditional wound care products, in accordance with the treatment plan from the patient’s physician and the wound care clinic. In total, the course of treatment took more than two years. During the course, [...]



Shingles, or Herpes Zoster in Latin, is caused by the varicella-zoster virus. This type of virus causes chicken pox, and shingles is the result of a reactivation of the chicken pox virus, often several years following the original infection. Early symptoms of herpes zoster are vague, such as headache, fever, and malaise. The initial phase of the condition is most often followed by the appearance of the characteristic skin rash. The pain and rash most commonly occurs on the torso, but can appear on the face, eyes or other parts of the body. Laser therapy has proven to be [...]



Acne and pimples are a common skin disorder, caused by plugged hair follicles in the face and on the chest. Several patients have seen improvement and a reduction in the extent of their acne or pimples after treatment with laser therapy.



Blisters can be quite painful, if not treated. Blisters are pockets of fluid that can occur in different places on the body depending on how they are generated. They can occur from too much mechanical friction or pressure on the skin. Most people have experienced blisters on their feet due to new or too small shoes, but they can also occur on your hands because of manual labor such as gardening or other work where you tend to use your hands a lot or just intensely for a short time – especially if you are not used to it.

A sprain occurs when you damage a ligament or other soft parts surrounding a joint. Sprains can vary greatly in severity from simple sprains to severe ligament damage. Signs of a sprain are oedema, pain and difficulty moving the particular body part. Sprains occur when a joint stretches beyond its normal capacity, either from pulling or a sudden motion. You will experience oedema and pain in the joint and sometimes see discoloration under the skin; red, blue, and possibly yellow. In mild cases, pain and oedema occur after a few hours, in severe cases, they occur immediately. Sprains often [...]


Pulled muscle

Pulled muscles occur when one or more muscle fibers in a muscle are torn. The injury results in swelling (oedema) and sharp pain. If the muscle has been completely ruptured, you will not be able to move the damaged muscle. A pulled muscle is usually treated by use of the RICE principle (rest, ice, compression, elevation) in the first 24 hours. Then, it is recommended that you rest the muscle for a few days and then slowly and gently begin rehabilitation. Laser therapy can be used as a supplement to the treatment of a pulled muscle. Laser treatment will [...]
