Light-based therapeutic modalities are becoming increasingly popular within advanced rehabilitation settings in the healthcare industry. Even with their gain in popularity, very few clinicians understand the key differences between LED and laser light sources, including exactly how they work and what therapeutic effects they have. Knowing the strengths and weaknesses of these different light modalities can have a significant impact on their effectiveness when treating specific diagnoses and largely determines overall clinical success.
In this webinar, Mark Callanen, PT, DPT, OCS, will educate attendees on the key differences between 2 of the most popular therapeutic light-based technologies, LED and laser therapy. From mechanisms of action to clinical applications, attendees will gain a clearer understanding of how these different therapies work and how to best use them.
Key talking points will include:
- Understanding how light-based modalities work
- Dispelling the diode myth
- Looking closer at properties of light
- Getting past the skin to get better results
- Using light therapies in practice – top applications
