The most common joint diseases are osteoarthritis and arthritis. They are characterized by degenerative damage and abrasion of the articular cartilage. Patients suffer from joint pain and inflammation, which are accompanied with a restriction of joint movement and result in a reduced quality of life. In Germany alone, about five million people suffer from arthritic joint pain, with increasing tendency.
The LASERNEEDLE technology allows the precisely targeted irradiation of laser light into the joint space. Thereby deeper lying tissue regions in the joint can also be reached, where the maximum healing effect can immediately unfold. The irradiation of the affected tissue can be made from several sides simultaneously. This ensures that the uniform blood circulation of the affected joint is achieved. During the therapy, the doctor or therapist must not be present and can take care of the next patient. Few treatments are already sufficient to relieve pain and improve mobility.
Advantages of LLLT compared to conventional treatment methods
- non-invasive approach – as opposed to injections of corticosteroids, surgical joint stiffness or joint replacement
- analgesic with no known side effects – opposed to non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs
- lasting healing effects, even beyond the treatment period
Laser treatments can be combined with medical sports therapy to further support the healing.

For treatment of joint disorders we recommend the LASERNEEDLE Touch OrthoPhys device.
On request we will send you more information about published studies on laser therapy documenting the improvement of joint mobility and pain relief.
