NEWARK, DE, June. 10, 2016 — A recent study* published in Lasers In Medical Science has shown that clinical benefits can be attained with a reduced exercise regime for the treatment of Achilles tendinopathy. The randomized, controlled trial found that twice-daily exercise sessions are not necessary to achieve positive results when treating Achilles tendinopathy: equivalent results can be obtained with two exercise sessions per week. Furthermore, researchers concluded that photobiomodulation as an adjunct to exercise can bring added benefit.
