The action of low-intensity infrared laser radiation on skin afferents

Vopr Kurortol Fizioter Lech Fiz Kult. 1995 Sep-Oct;(5):10-3. [The action of low-intensity infrared laser radiation on skin afferents] [Article in Russian] Ponomarenko GN, Enin LD. Laser radiation modulates functional characteristics of mechanoreceptors. This inhibits impulse activity of the nerve endings from pain focus and reduces pain sensitivity of skin afferents, excitability of conductive nerve fibers. Changes in sensitivity become more pronounced with increasing duration of...
