Can Laser Therapy Help Neuropathy? | Dublin, Ireland

Neuropathy is a condition that affects the nerves, causing pain, numbness, and tingling. It can be caused by diabetes, chemotherapy, or other conditions. There is no cure for neuropathy, but there are treatments that can help relieve the symptoms. One such treatment is laser therapy.

How Does Laser Therapy Work?

Laser therapy uses low-level lasers or light-emitting diodes (LEDs) to stimulate cells and promote healing. The light energy from the laser penetrates deep into the tissue, where it is absorbed by cells and converted into ATP (adenosine triphosphate). ATP is the energy that cells use to perform their functions 

When cells have more ATP, they can function better. This helps reduce pain and inflammation and promotes healing. Laser therapy is effective in treating a variety of conditions, including neuropathy. 

One study looked at the effect of laser therapy on patients with diabetic neuropathy. The patients were treated with laser therapy three times a week for six weeks. At the end of the study, the patients who had received laser therapy had significantly less pain than those who did not receive treatment. They also had improved nerve function and skin blood flow. 

Another study looked at the effect of laser therapy on patients with chemotherapy-induced neuropathy. The patients were treated with laser therapy three times a week for eight weeks. At the end of the study, the patients who had received laser therapy had significantly less pain than those who did not receive treatment. They also had improved nerve function and quality of life. 

Conclusion 

If you are living with neuropathy, you may wonder if laser therapy can help relieve your symptoms. The answer is yes! Laser therapy is an effective treatment for reducing pain, improving nerve function, and increasing quality of life in patients with neuropathy. If you are interested in trying laser therapy, talk to one of our doctors to see if it is right for you.
