Photomedicine, an integrative treatment that has existed for decades, provides a number of clinical benefits in treating tissue injury, inflammation, pain, and more. In our courses, you will gain a comprehensive insight into physiological healing through laser therapy. As with any of our integrative medicine courses, we will delve into factual, evidence-informed knowledge to instruct our students on how to effectively employ photomedicine. We cover the scientific evidence for the success of healing with light and also discuss laser safety issues as we discuss a range of devices found on the market today.

As a veterinary professional in either conventional or integrative medicine, photomedicine is an excellent complement to your medical practice because of its high level of safety and positive results. If you’re ready to provide healing options for your patients that don’t require injections or pharmaceuticals, it may be time to consider a CuraCore laser therapy course.Read More
PHOTOMEDICINE for Veterinarians
The first section of PRIMA™ Photomedicine covers the physiologic basis of photobiomodulation, i.e., the manner in which the medical application of light, whether through laser or light emitting diodes (LEDs), influences living tissue. Topics include photobiomodulation for tissue repair, analgesia, circulatory restoration, neuroprotection and neural regeneration, reduction of inflammation, and immune modulation. Free of financial conflicts of interest, Dr. Robinson critically evaluates the pros and cons of various laser and LED units.
The second section of PRIMA™ Photomedicine calls upon learners to apply their knowledge from section I for the safe and effective treatment of pain, inflammation, nerve regeneration, and more. We set the stage by establishing the scientific framework for the PRIM A™ Photomedicine Method which integrates seamlessly with Dr. Robinson’s Medical Acupuncture and Integrative Neuromodulation® method. In so doing, graduates of this program and, ultimately, PRIMA™ certified practitioners, will enjoy the flexibility of utilizing a spectrum of integrative medicine methods to tackle challenging disorders such as brain and spinal cord disease or injury, peripheral and cranial nerve problems, musculoskeletal injury, pain (neuropathic, inflammatory, and visceral), internal medicine problems, and the adverse consequences of radiation therapy.
