Laser Therapy and Light-Emitting Diodes (LEDs)
Science, Evidence and Clinical Applications
Scientific research attests to its clinical benefits for treating pain, inflammation, tissue injury, and more. Our online course takes an in-depth look at the physiology of healing with light, evidence for its success for a wide range of clinical conditions, effective ways to employ treatment, and safety issues involved with lasers.
Photomedicine is being incorporated on a daily basis in both human and veterinary medical centers. Two aspects of photomedicine, laser therapy and LEDs, help to “kickstart” cellular repair processes by activating mitochondrial ATP production after photons enter the tissue through the beam of light. This elevated level of ATP availability supports healthy cell signaling and gives cells the metabolic energy they need to regrow tissue. Laser therapy activates fibroblasts and keratinocytes and increases DNA replication, angiogenesis, and analgesia.
Are you interested in learning more? CuraCore offers an online course in photomedicine designed for medical and veterinary clinicians and researchers. The course includes 12 modules that explain the inner workings of photomedicine, the science behind it, and how to use it to help your patients heal.
We cover the range of devices on the market and review claims and controversies surrounding their use and effectiveness.
We explain how cells and mitochondria respond to light and how laser therapy enhances regenerative medicine interventions such as stem cell therapy.
As the course continues, we review the science and evidence for a range of patient problems, such as brain, spinal cord, and peripheral nerve injury, non-healing wounds, joint and spinal pain, and several internal medical disorders.
Whether you practice human or veterinary medicine, conventional or integrative therapy, photomedicine provides a perfect complement with a high degree of patient satisfaction and safety.
The program will consist of 12 modules beginning with the basic science of photomedicine, moving into research and clinical practice.
Please review the module content in the course brochure, available here.
HOW MUCH DOES IT COST?
Practicing veterinary healthcare professionals $695.
Veterinary and Vet Tech students $645.
AM I ELIGIBLE? HOW DO I REGISTER?
Registration is open to human and veterinary healthcare providers. Proof of licensure, certification, or in case of a veterinary/vet tech student, a letter of good standing from the dean’s office will be required. The course is not a substitute for proper training, education, or licensure in medicine, but is intended solely as a source of scientific, evidence-based knowledge.
Registration is open and ongoing.
