What is it about?

Many approaches are used to reduce low back pain. HILT and TENS are some of the electrotherapy modalities used for this. In our study, HILT was found to be more effective than TENS in reducing pain. In addition, it is more advantageous to use it in the clinic as its duration of use is shorter.

Why is it important?

Pain is one of the most important complaints of our patients. HILT is a modality that can be used easily because it reduces pain and increases the quality of life.


I hope this article is supported by other articles and that more studies are done by increasing the number of samples. Thus, HILT begins to be used as a more practical modality in the clinic.
