A total of 80 patients with knee osteoarthritis (KOA) aged between fourty five and seventy years will be recruited by simple random sampling to participate in two group, randomized, double blind, controlled study. Recruited patients will be randomly divided in to two groups high intensity-laser therapy (HILT) group and ibuprofen gel phonophoresis (IGP) group. Duration of the treatment will be 8 minutes in one session/knee joint for each day for 3 days/week for 8 weeks.The pain and quality of life will be assessed at the baseline and at the end of 8-week post-intervention period.

The purpose of this study is to assess the effectiveness of high intensity laser therapy in the treatment of subacromial impingement syndrome.
This study investigates the effect of high intensity exercise, with and without the inflammation inhibitor, ibuprofen, on plasma levels of IL-6 and other selective biomarkers of inflammati...

Treatment using irradiation with LASER light of low power intensity so that the effects are not due to heat, as in LASER THERAPY. These non-thermal effects are thought to be mediated by a photochemical reaction that alters CELL MEMBRANE PERMEABILITY, leading to increased mRNA synthesis and CELL PROLIFERATION. Low-level laser therapy has been used for a wide variety of conditions, but most frequently for wound healing and pain control.
A nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory agent with analgesic properties used in the therapy of rheumatism and arthritis.
An IBUPROFEN-type anti-inflammatory analgesic and antipyretic. It is used in the treatment of rheumatoid arthritis and osteoarthritis.
A technique utilizing a laser coupled to a catheter which is used in the dilatation of occluded blood vessels. This includes laser thermal angioplasty where the laser energy heats up a metal tip, and direct laser angioplasty where the laser energy directly ablates the occlusion. One form of the latter approach uses an EXCIMER LASER which creates microscopically precise cuts without thermal injury. When laser angioplasty is performed in combination with balloon angioplasty it is called laser-assisted balloon angioplasty (ANGIOPLASTY, BALLOON, LASER-ASSISTED).
Arthritis in children, with onset before 16 years of age. The terms juvenile rheumatoid arthritis (JRA) and juvenile idiopathic arthritis (JIA) refer to classification systems for chronic arthritis in children. Only one subtype of juvenile arthritis (polyarticular-onset, rheumatoid factor-positive) clinically resembles adult rheumatoid arthritis and is considered its childhood equivalent.
