The bottom line. Photobiomodulation therapy is at least as effective as opioid medications for improving pain related function over twelve months in adults with severe chronic back pain, hip pain, knee pain, osteoarthritis pain. The clinical evidence that photobiomodulation is superior to opioid medications for chronic and acute pain continues to mount.
For decades patients and clinicians have believed that opioids are superior for reducing pain and improving function in patients with severe chronic pain. Now the clinical evidence is growing that adults with chronic back pain, hip pain, knee pain, osteoarthritis pain that rated at least moderately severe on standard pain rating scales and persist every day for at least six months can be effectively treated with photobiomodulation therapy with improved outcomes. Photobiomodulation therapy alone or in combination with non-opioid pain medications such as Tylenol, non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs, Amitriptyline, Gabapentin and topical analgesics provides effective relief of pain opioid free.
