Understanding the Basic Principles of Photobiomodulation Therapy for Effective Clinical Application (Non-CME)
Photobiomodulation Therapy (PBMT) is a rapidly expanding, photonic based medical treatment that has wide application in many medical, dental and veterinary specialties. For clinicians and researchers new to PBMT, there are many fundamental questions about this therapy. Some of these questions include:
- What is the underlying mechanistic basis for how Photobiomodulation (PBM) affects cells, tissues and organisms?
What are the clinical applications?
What determines the best wavelength for different applications?
What is known about optimal dosing parameters for different applications?
Are there any differences between PBMT and low level light therapy (LLLT)?
The objective of this course will be to answer these questions and provide state-of-the-art knowledge about all aspects of PBM and PBMT. This course is appropriate for students, researchers, and clinicians who are interested in basic research in PBM or use of PBMT in their practice. Since PBMT can be effective in a wide range of injuries and diseases, clinicians from many specialties could benefit from this course. Of particular note are the emerging applications in dermatologic applications.
