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.
