Purpose: to evaluate the effectiveness of low-intensity helium-neon laser radiation in patients with trigeminal neuralgia. Material and Methods. With the help of low-intensity helium-neon laser radiation, 76 patients with trigeminal neuralgia were treated. For this purpose, helium-neon laser devices AFL-1 and AFDL-1 with a wavelength of laser radiation of 0.63 microns were used, the power flux was 20-25 mW. Results. It is shown that as a result of treatment with this type of radiation in most cases, both nociceptive and neuropathic components of the pain syndrome are stopped. Conclusion. For the management of pain syndrome in trigeminal neuralgia, it is advisable to use low-intensity laser radiation in complex treatment.
