Photomedicine, Not Opioids, for Chronic Pain

Modern medicine, like millions of people across the planet, herself appears to have an addiction to narcotics, or more specifically, to the prescribing of these opioid based medications. Dispensing highly addictive medications in lieu of referring for physical medicine and photomedicine has contributed to a ‘‘serious global problem that affects the health, social, and economic welfare of all societies.’’

REHABILITATION & PHYSICAL MEDICINE – PRIMA MOVE ORTHO & NEURO

Propel your practice into high gear.  Optimal motor function requires an engaged neural network, appropriate muscle tone and bulk, and healthful fascial mobility.  Our integrative rehabilitation program attends to all three.

MOVE/Ortho teaches you how to work with rehabilitation basics, including therapeutic exercise, neuromuscular electrical stimulation, ultrasound, and pulsed electromagnetic field therapy, as they relate to musculoskeletal and neurologic impairment, respectively.

MOVE/Neuro extends and applies principles and practices presented in MOVE/Ortho to the treatment of dogs with neurologic injury, debility, and dysfunction.  Online and onsite instruction addresses problems in the brain, spinal cord, cranial and peripheral nerves, and autonomic nervous system.

NOTE: MOVE/Ortho is a prerequisite of MOVE/Neuro.  You can take the two together, and save 15%, or just MOVE/Ortho during 2020.

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.

Cannabis for Veterinary Professionals

LEARN THE SCIENCE AND COMPLEXITY OF CANNABINOID MEDICINE.

Veterinarians face many questions when it comes to cannabis.  How does it work? Is it safe? What are the safeguards to regulate veterinary products?  Which regulations impact veterinarians’ ability to prescribe cannabis?  How does cannabidiol (CBD) differ from delta-9 tetrahydrocannabinol in terms of clinical effects and toxicity? Where can I find reliable information online?

This course aims to educate veterinarians, veterinary nurses, and technicians about multiple aspects of cannabis treatment — recognizing its historical lineage, safety concerns, and proven ability to regulate endogenous analgesic and homeostatic processes.

The class is open to veterinary healthcare professionals as well as those from other professions that have a desire to learn more about the pharmacology and safety issues concerning cannabis. As such, prospective enrollees should read the following prerequisites carefully in order to ensure that they have a strong enough scientifically based education in order to grasp fundamental pharmacologic and clinical concepts.

Completion of this course does not grant the authority to prescribe any type of cannabis product, and participants should explore and understand local, regional, and national restrictions concerning cannabis that would apply to them and their practice, if applicable. Completion of this program does not grant any licensure or certification to practice medicine.
