The Science of Photobiomodulation Therapy: An In-Depth Analysis

Presenter: Luis De Taboada, MSEE

Learn from an industry leader how light is transported through tissue, the cellular reactions that happen during therapy, and how to get light to target tissues whether they are superficial or deep. Visual models are provided to help teach these complex biological interactions. By learning how light interacts with tissue, you will understand the therapeutic effects resulting from photobiomodulation and why deep tissue laser therapy is quickly growing in popularity as a “go-to” modality in so many different clinical settings.

In this webinar learn about:

  • What is the correct terminology?
  • What are the mechanisms of action in Photobiomodulation?
  • How does light penetrate into tissue?  What impact does this have on treating superficial vs. deep target tissue?
  • What happens to the light in our bodies?
  • How can light have a therapeutic effect?
