Light Therapy vs. Cryotherapy in Post-Exercise Muscle Recovery
An upcoming article in the Journal of Sports Rehabilitation has examined the scientific evidence for the use and efficacy of cryotherapy versus photobiomodulation (PBM or Light Therapy) in post-exercise muscle recovery.
The authors concluded that all 5 studies reviewed support the use of PBM over cryotherapy for reduction of muscle damage and perceived muscle soreness (DOMS), as well as for accelerated recovery of physical performance in trained and untrained athletes.
