Today, athletes suffering from injuries can recover much more efficiently, and with far less suffering due to the range of sports recovery techniques available to them. For example, we’ve previously discussed the many benefits of red light therapy when it comes to injury recovery (and beyond!).
Red light therapy, or infrared light therapy has been gaining traction in the sports community - and for good reason. Red light therapy uses light to aid in the treatment of both acute and chronic pain conditions, making it ideal for the today’s injured athlete.

This common injury generally occurs while an athlete is jumping, running or sprinting while taking large steps - which can cause the muscles to pull or stretch too far and too abruptly, oftentimes resulting in a painful tear. Hamstring muscles that aren’t sufficiently flexible are especially prone to this type of injury.
Knee injuries are one of the most common types of injuries that athletes suffer - especially in the game of basketball. A knee injury can affect any of the major knee ligaments, including the ACL, PCL, MCL, LCL and coronary ligament.
Any injured athlete knows the importance of rehabilitation to not only make a full recovery and be able to return to the sport they love, but to also reduce pain and discomfort along the way.
