This study evaluated the efficacy of MLS Laser Therapy in combination with the other components of standard therapy (mobilization of the muscle, stretching and eccentric contraction exercise) for the treatment of muscular contracture due to sudden increase in activity.
A 16 year old athlete’s rectus femoris was treated with MLS laser for 3 days and saw negative clinical examination of pain and muscle contracture and was able to participate with the team after treatment day 3. Typical DOMS disappears in 5-7 days, thus significantly shortened by MLS Laser Therapy.
