9 national level volleyball players were randomized to low-level laser therapy (LLLT) or placebo 2 min before undergoing the exercise, causing exertion of biceps muscle. In this crossover designed RCT, the LLLT treatment resulted in a significant increase of submaximal elbow flexions to exhaustion compared to the placebo. Post exercise biochemical markers associated with inflammation and damage (C...
