Mini Course: The Physiologic Basis of Medical Acupuncture and Photomedicine for Spinal Cord Injury (SCI)
Need to justify your integrative medical interventions to a boss or skeptical colleague?
Looking for ways to optimize clinical outcomes for your patients with spinal cord injury and back pain?
This three hour mini-course in the integrative medical approach to spinal cord injury has been designed to be engaging and interactive. It requires you to read, to critique, and to provide your own views on the topic of spinal cord injury, including the pathophysiology of the primary and secondary injury phases.
Once you gain familiarity with the disease processes, we will ask you to partner those processes with putative benefits conferred by photobiomodulation and neuromodulation that can aid in the design of rational, non-invasive, and restorative treatment protocols.
While this knowledge has value in and of itself for providing optimal patient care, your taking an active role in learning this information will aid to ensure a stronger grasp of the tenets and methods of integrative medicine for spinal cord injury and make you that much better prepared to advocate for a higher standard of care — one that offers patients more than merely drugs and/or surgery.
Differs from the webinar by taking a deeper look at the concepts presented therein and calls for more active engagement by the participant.
