Posted on by admin

A Journal of Rehabilitation Research & Development report that investigated the effects of electrical stimulation (ES) and laser treatment on wound healing in rats conducted by Erciyes University Medical Faculty, Department of Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation, Kayseri, Turkey. A randomized-controlled trial, conducted at the Experimental and Clinical Research Centre of Erciyes University (Kayseri, Turkey), divided 124 healthy female Swiss-Albino rats into four groups.

It was found that both electrical stimulation and laser treatment can be used successfully in decubitis ulcers and chronic wounds, in combination with conventional therapies such as daily care and debridement of wounds; however, electrical stimulation has more beneficial effects during the inflammatory phase in some parameters than laser treatment.
