Low-Level Laser Therapy for IC
Low-Level Laser Therapy (LLLT) is a treatment using specific wavelengths of light to help facilitate the healing process. It can be used on patients who suffer from a variety of acute and chronic conditions to help eliminate pain and swelling. It can also reduce muscle spasms and increase the functionality of the body system it is applied to.
LLLT application to the bladder and soft tissues of the pelvis for the treatment of pelvic pain and overactive bladder disease remains in IRB approved clinical trials in the Netherlands. Preliminary results are encouraging, but this therapy has not yet been approved for marketing by the FDA.
