Treating Tendon Injury with a Laser

Presenter: Dr. Steve Tumilty

In this webinar Dr. Steve Tumilty from the University of Otago discusses treating tendon injuries with a therapy laser.  New research has convinced him that less exercise combined with laser therapy treatment offers an exciting and effective alternative to traditional rehabilitation.

“It was only really by accident that I got into the laser research, and I’m sort of converted with regards to musculoskeletal problems anyway,” says Dr Steve Tumilty from the University of Otago. “Saying that I would never use it as a standalone treatment, and I don’t think any physio worth his salt would ever use the laser as a standalone treatment.”
