Low Level Laser Therapy has been into practice since more than two decades for the cure of tinnitus. It’s an effective measure to treat tinnitus and other hearing disorders. The underlying fact is that there are pros and cons of this treatment. Let’s have a look at these pros and cons.
In this method, laser energy is used for penetrating into tissues. Cells containing mitochondria are stimulated to produce energy with the production of ATP. Mitochondria are the power supply source for our cells. Mitochondria stimulation via laser therapy repairs damaged tissues, and the cells regain back to their healthy state.
Acetyl-L-Carnitine (ALC) and Alpha Lipoic Acid (ALA) are closely associated with hearing disorders as they lesson the age related effects to improve the cochlear function. Since Low Level Laser Therapy helps to repair damaged cells in the cochlea, it can also be effective against tinnitus.
This therapy was also tried out on patients using multiple lasers. The laser emits wavelength which penetrates into the tissues 2 to 5 cm within the body. The session’s lasts for around an hour. One may require nearly 10 sessions within a time span of 10 to 14 days.
There are some negative shades of the ongoing clinical trials conducted on this therapy. The amount of time spent in every session is far too less than 1 hour. Also, some patients were treated only once in a week.
Two of the recent studies highlighted the effectiveness of LLLT in treating tinnitus. Both the studies involved patients taking Ginkgo biloba extract. 120 patients were tested out for 10 sessions which lasted for 10 minutes each. More than 50% showed improvement in their condition after the treatment. In the next study 200 patients were tested out. These patients were using diverse treatment modalities. They were using Ginkgo biloba extract, Betahistine and other medications. All of these patients were treated with LLLT, and the results were positive for most of the patients, despite the fact that the patients were using several treatment modalities.
As of now there is a US based company called Advanced Energy Medicine of Daytona Beach which is treating tinnitus patients based on the principles of Low Level Laser Therapy. They have treated over 20,000 tinnitus patients with the aid of this therapy.
