SOLON, Ohio--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Multi Radiance Medical (MRM), manufacturer and marketer of FDA-cleared lasers for drug-free pain relief, announces that its Clinical Research Trial for treating Knee Pain is among the first translational research studies performed with Photobiomodulation.

“This study is ground-breaking in the sense that it moves the research in Photobiomodulation from statistically significant to clinically significant,” states Max Kanarsky, President and CEO of Multi Radiance. “This is the new gold standard in research, a level even above evidence based research.”

The study was conducted with the MRM MR4 Super Pulsed Laser in a randomized double-blind placebo controlled environment with the following conclusions:
  • Photobiomodulation significantly decreased pain and significantly improved SF-36® physical component summary at post-treatments and follow-up assessments compared to placebo.
  • Outcomes were maintained at the 30 day follow up.
  • A combination of super pulsed laser, red and infrared LEDs is effective for decreasing pain and improving the quality of life in patients with knee pain.
The Study included 86 patients being treated for all types of knee pain with a standard methodology call the Priority Principle™. The methodology was developed by Douglas S. Johnson, ATC, EES, CLS who was closely involved with the project.

“The article was accepted for publication by Lasers in Medical Science and is now available as an e-publication ahead of print,” Johnson said. “We will also be presenting the findings at the upcoming joint meeting of the World Association of Laser Therapy and the North American Association of Laser and Light Therapy held this September in Washington, DC.”

Dr. Ernesto Leal Junior, PhD, PT, the lead researcher on the study and a prominent researcher in the field of Photobiomodulation, states, “This study represents a shift in research since we focused on patient-based outcomes. Currently, research in the Photobiomodulation field has generated outcomes that generally are difficult to translate into clinical practice, which creates a gap. Undoubtedly, this study fills the gap and represents real translational research.”

To Help Understand the Impact of Functional Foot Orthotics, Foot Levelers a Body of Knowledge Leader

ROANOKE, VirginiaFoot Levelers, the world’s leading provider of individually designed Stabilizing Orthotics, has long been a supporter of clinical research aimed at discovering the biomechanical and functional impact Stabilizing Orthotics have on the kinetic chain. Since originally funding the Greenawalt Research Chair at Northwestern Chiropractic College in 1988, Foot Levelers has supported 37 clinical studies to help the healthcare community better understand the benefits of functional foot orthotics and is currently backing two studies with the same goal.
footleverslogo2In 2012, Foot Levelers partnered with New York Chiropractic College (NYCC) to conduct a long-term study with the New York Veteran Affairs system to research the Effects of Custom Shoe Orthotics vs. Sham Orthotics in Patients with Low Back Pain in 220 patients.
In addition to the NYCC study, Foot Levelers is also supporting a study at National University of Health Sciences entitled Shoe Orthotics for the Treatment of Chronic Low Back Pain: A Randomized Control Trial. Commissioned in October of 2013, this study is following 225 participants to measure low back pain levels in an allotted time frame in orthotic vs. non-orthotic users.
Included in the 37 research studies showing the effectiveness of Stabilizing Orthotics are: Radiographic Evaluation of Weight Bearing Orthotics and Their Effects on Flexible Pes Planus (Kuhn, Shibley, Austin, and Yochum); Orthotics, a Correlation to Spinal Biomechanics (Kuhn, Tremba, and Nosco); and Leg Length Inequality Case Study – Three Dimensional Movement Analysis of the Effects of Foot Orthotics and Heel Lift (Woodward and Ball).
Along with the others, all of the mentioned studies have had a tremendous impact on the chiropractic community and how it integrates Stabilizing Orthotics as functional orthotics for patient care.
With 37 clinical studies as support, evidence shows Foot Levelers Stabilizing Orthotics functionally address conditions of the foot, ankle and legs, thereby providing a positive impact on the kinetic chain, including the lower spine. These studies indicate Stabilizing Orthotics as an effective treatment and prevention device when foot problems are identified by a healthcare-provider.
“We are committed to support the chiropractic profession as a leader in research, advancing the body of knowledge to improve overall patient health,” notes Dr. Mark Zeigler, Foot Levelers Vice President of Education.
