Photobiomodulation therapy (PBMT)/ low level laser therapy (LLLT) has been extensively utilized by clinicians since the late 1960's. Currently there are over 400 clinical trials researching the clinical benefits of PBMT. As a result of the unique mechanisms of action, PBMT has the potential to effectively treat a wide range of medical conditions.
This webinar discusses the clinical research including evidence-based guidelines for the treatment of the following body systems: muscular, nervous, lymphatic, integumentary, skeletal, reproductive, circulatory and endocrine. This webinar will also discuss safety issues including contraindications and precautions.
Dr. David Kunasko also offers an on demand foundation course which is paired beautifully with this course. If you want to go deeper into the mechanism behind PBMT/LLLT then look into the fundamentals of LLLT/PBMT online course. https://healthyseminars.com/product/fundamentals-photobiomodulation-low-level-laser-therapy
