Sport-related Muscles Pain Syndrome

Photobiomodulation for muscles aims to benefit athletic performance and training, to reduce delayed onset muscle soreness, as well as to ameliorate signs of muscle damage after intense or prolonged exercise. Moreover photobiomodulation can also be used to treat frank muscle damage caused by muscle strains or trauma. There have been several clinical trials carried out in athletes such as elite runners, volleyball players and rugby players. Photobiomodulation increased the maximal load in exercise and reduced fatigue.
