Low level laser therapy (LLLT) has been documented to optimize human muscle performance with physical exercise. This study tested the effect of Low level laser therapy (LLLT) on physical strength training compared with strength training only.
Laser therapy and sports injuries
Laser therapy increases strength
The study involved 36 healthy, fit men using an 808 nm continuous wavelength laser, much like the Apollo. The LLLT men showed an increase of 55% in strength on isokinetic dynamometry, significantly higher than the increases with exercise alone.
Soon we may see LLLT commonly used to improve sports performance.
