Electrophysiological Effects of Single Point Transcutaneous 650 and 808 nm Laser Irradiation of Rat Sciatic Nerve: A Study of Relevance for Low-Level Laser Therapy and Laser Acupuncture

" Localized transcutaneous 808 LI [laser irradiation] to a single point overlying sciatic nerve increases SSEP [somatosensory evoked potentials] amplitudes when compared with delivery of the same total energy to four points, which causes decreased SSEP amplitudes and conduction block. Therefore, the area and duration of delivery are important, independent variables with implications for clinical delivery of both LLLT [low-level laser therapy] and LA [laser acupuncture]."
