Evidence to support the use of light/laser is developing, but remains patchy and is hindered by a heterogeneity of methods, data reporting and conditions. Further work is necessary to definitively establish the optimal areas of clinical effectiveness and dosimetry of laser therapy. Given the potential benefits associated with this modality (i.e. accelerated tissue repair, relief of pain), this approach represents an area with considerable promise for future research.
