Light therapy helps preserve muscle activity following nerve damage

In this study, part of the sciatic nerve was removed and the affected muscle area was observed for 30 days with the addition of light therapy. This area where the light therapy was applied, showed a significant reduction in muscle breakdown that would normally be observed following the innervation to the muscle. It was then concluded that light therapy would benefit by in the early stages of muscle atrophy, preserving the denervated muscle <view study>
