Photobiomodulation and physical exercise on strength, balance and functionality of elderly women

Abstract: Licensed under a Creative Commons attribution ORIGINAL ARTICLE [T] Photobiomodulation and physical exercise on strength, balance and functionality of elderly women Abstract Introduction: Aging is associated with structural changes in muscle tissue, which leads to the loss of functional independence. The preservation of the muscle strength through strength training, and recently, low-level laser therapy (LLLT), has high clinical significance. Objective: to investigate the effects of photobiomodulation (PBM -… Show more

“…Additionally, there is evidence that exercises have a crucial role in improving balance. It strengthens the muscles that enhance balance, walking ability, and correct deformities [ 7 ]. Published research has demonstrated that balance has improved by applying certain stretching procedures, proprioceptive stimulation techniques, and strengthening exercises [ 8 ].…”

“…Taken together, these findings indicate that PBM may be effective for young, but not for older adults, regardless of sex or presence of a long-term RT program. Given that the total energy range (young: 50-240 J vs older adults: 56-240 J) was similar between studies with young16,52,53 and older12,17,23–25 individuals, it seems reasonable to assume that the lack of a further effect of PBM on muscle strength in the older adults may be more associated with intrinsic biological factors than with external parameters of irradiation. This point requires further investigation.…”

“…We also found similar improvements in the postural balance variables (i.e., A-COP, Vel AP, Vel ML, Freq AP, and Freq ML) from pre- to posttraining between active and placebo laser conditions. It is well established that RT can improve postural balance in older adults,58,59 but only a previous study examined the effects of PBM combined on an RT program on postural balance in older women 24. The authors applied the active laser PBM (λ= 808 nm, 100 mW, total energy: 56 J) or placebo PBM immediately after each session of an 8-week RT program (2 times per week) involving knee flexion-extension exercise at 60% to 80% of 1RM, and found an improvement in the mediolateral stability index in right leg (MLSI—right) in the active PBM group, but not in the placebo PBM group.…”
