Review of transcranial photobiomodulation for major depressive disorder: targeting brain metabolism, inflammation, oxidative stress, and neurogenesis
“Two case reports in patients with TBI suggested that transcranial PBM improved sustained attention, memory, and executive functions. … PBM increases neurotrophins, neurogenesis, synaptogenesis, and ATP, while it reduces inflammation, apoptosis, and oxidative stress. … Based on the data collected to date, PBM appears to be a promising treatment for depression that is safe and well-tolerated.…
The Efficacy of Low-level Laser Therapy on Pain caused by Placement of the First Orthodontic Archwire: A Clinical Study.
“The pain ceased much sooner in the experimental group than in the control group. The intensity of pain was lesser in the experimental group when compared with the control group. … Low-level laser therapy was an effective and noninvasive method for controlling pain.” Read More
Photobiomodulation therapy and vitamin C on longevity of cell sheets of human dental pulp stem cells.
“Photobiomodulation therapy (PBMT) can improve processes relevant to tissue regeneration, such as survival, proliferation, migration, and differentiation of cells, including stem cells. Thus, PBMT could be applied as auxiliary therapy for tissue regeneration.” Read More
Effects of Photobiomodulation Therapy on Oxidative Stress in Muscle Injury Animal Models: A Systematic Review
“Although the small number of studies limits conclusions, the current literature indicates that photobiomodulation therapy can be an effective short-term approach to reduce oxidative stress markers. Evidence was found to suggest que PBMT is an effective short-term approach for reducing oxidative stress in muscle injury.” Read More
“To increase ROM, all types of stretching are effective, although PNF-type stretching may be more effective for immediate gains. To avoid decrease in strength and performance that may occur in athletes due to static stretching before competition or activity, dynamic stretching is recommended for warm-up.” Read More
Effect of stretching-based rehabilitation on pain, flexibility and muscle strength in dancers with hamstring injury: a single-blind, prospective, randomized clinical trial.
“This rehabilitation program effectively decreases pain and increases flexibility and strength in patients with hamstring injury. The data indicate that a stretching-based rehabilitation program can help promote functional recovery from hamstring injury.” Read More
“A significant decrease in their pain level was reported after 2 weeks of continuous treatment. The use of the systematic stretching maneuver enhanced the functional gains of chronic low-back pain patients compared to the control group.” Read More
“Findings have implications for the prevention and treatment of tendon injuries, and both ballistic and static stretching should be incorporated in the prevention and treatment programmes for tendon injuries.” Read More
The effects of an active-assisted stretching program on functional performance in elderly persons: A pilot study
“We conclude that our eight-week flexibility program effectively reduces age-related losses in ROM and improves functional performance in elderly persons with insufficient physical reserves to perform higher-intensity exercises.” Read More
