The aim of the present study was to investigate the effects of low-level laser on the acute inflammatory phase following Achilles tendon injury with regard to the expression of pro-inflammatory and anti-inflammatory proteins. We conclude that the LLLT InGaAlP (660 nm) 100 mW power and energy of 6 J is an important modulator of inflammatory mediators during the process of tissue repair after injury to the Achilles tendon cutting common Wistar rats.
