Background: Diabetic neuropathies are a family of nerve disorders either subclinical or clinically evident that occurs in both peripheral nervous systems with Type II diabetes. Currently, Physical therapy treatment by Low Level Laser Therapy (LLLT) effective in decreasing symptoms or even reversing the progress of Tarsal Tunnel Syndrome (TTS).
Purpose: this study was done to investigate the influence of the LLLT on the symptoms, Neurophysiological study and visual analog scale (VAS) in Diabetic Type II patients with TTS.
Method and Materials: Thirty diabetic patients had TTS aged 40-60 years were received LLLT program. Neurophysiological study and VAS measured before, and after 12 weeks of LLLT and analyzed motor and sensory (latency and amplitude).
Results: Distal latency was significantly decreased, amplitude increased and VAS improved after LLLT sessions.
Conclusion: It was concluded that LLLT influences the symptoms of TTS as a complications of type II diabetes mellitus.
