Animals were divided into 4 groups and treated with a 780 nm laseronce per day. It was observed that Laser Therapy both at early and late stage RA significantly reduced inflammation, toxic waste, hemorrhage, and tissue damage. It was interesting to note that there was more healthy fibrous tissue, cartilage cells, and newly formed bone. We have known for a long time that laser can alleviate many of the symptoms of osteoarthritis, but this is one of the first studies to show that laser can alleviate tissue damage and regenerate tissue in early and late stages of rheumatoid arthritis.
