Impact of high intensity laser therapy on post burn cubital tunnel syndrome


Burns in upper extremity results in edema formation resulting in neural compression disorders such as Cubital tunnel. PURPOSE: The purpose of this study was to investigate the effect of high intensity laser therapy (HILT) on post burn cubital tunnel syndrome. Thirty patients with cubital tunnel syndrome were randomly assigned to a HILT group and placebo HILT group. The study was designed as a randomized clinical trial. Each participant in the two groups received 20 treatment sessions of HILT or placebo HILT therapy over a period of four consecutive weeks. Outcome measures were the visual analogue Scale (VAS) and nerve conduction study (NCS) measured pre and post treatment program. The present study revealed a statistically significant improvement (P<0.05) in nerve conduction velocity and pain level in Group A compared to Group High intensity laser yield improvement in ulnar nerve conduction velocity and pain relief in post burn patients suffering from cubital tunnel nutritional.
