WEBINAR: The Physiologic Basis of Medical Acupuncture and Photomedicine for Spinal Cord Injury (SCI)
Join Dr. Narda Robinson for a recorded webinar on the pathophysiology of spinal cord injury and the rationale for treatment with medical acupuncture and photomedicine. The webinar will includes a 60 minute presentation followed by a 15 minute Q&A session (recorded).
During the webinar, Dr. Robinson discusses the sequences of events that take place within the spinal cord following acute mechanical injury. The similarity in pathogeneses between humans and dogs affords important translational insights on the mechanisms of injury so that both species can benefit from research in this area.
Dr. Robinson reviews the primary and secondary phases of injury characteristic of traumatic SCI and illustrate how integrative medicine practitioners can pair approaches such as medical acupuncture and photomedicine to pathologic processes taking place in the cord. This will encourage clinicians to approach SCI rationally and from an evidence-informed standpoint. Doing so has the potential to upgrade the standard of care for patients with SCI and improve outcomes by including integrative medical care early and regularly throughout the post-injury process.
Registrants will have access to the recorded webinar for 1 week.
Cost for the SCI webinar: $55
