Stephen Barabas will be with us to discuss Laser therapy, the use of specific wavelengths of light (red and near-infrared) to stimulate the body’s natural ability to heal. The effects of laser energy include improved healing time, pain reduction, increased circulation and decreased swelling.
Laser therapy has changed – it’s moved on. This broadcast will be a very evidence-based look at how you can use it in your clinic and exactly what benefits your patients will see. How good is it exactly for dealing with deeper soft tissue injuries? How about pain reduction? Swelling? Circulation? Join us for this discussion and find out. Our main guest is Stephen Barabas. He’s a vet. Which means he has a wealth of experience in treating patients and a phenomenal grasp of the A&P involved in laser therapy. He’s also an honorary laser consultant at St Thomas’ and Guy’s hospitals in London, and is a graduate of Glasgow University veterinary medicine and zoology faculties. One of the 2 businesses he runs deals with human medicine and is involved in provision of laser therapy to the NHS, sports franchises and private healthcare companies, where it is being used to treat acute and chronic musculoskeletal injuries, chronic pain syndromes, and diabetic wounds.
Also joining us for the discussion is Andy Goddard. Andy is a registered chiropractor, and he’ll be explaining how he is able to incorporate laser therapy in his own practice. He’ll be able to explain how this could work in a clinic just like yours, and will be able to put the science and evidence into a thoroughly practical context.
If you get nothing else from this broadcast, you’ll be able to explain to your patients exactly what laser is able too offer, and when it might be inappropriate. But we’ll also look at consent, communication and contraindications (of course).
(Tuesday) 7:30 pm - 9:00 pm
