Important Program Information

Level of difficulty: Essential

Target Audience: Treatment, rehabilitation, recovery

Education objectives: The prophylactic use of low powered laser/light has demonstrated ergogenic effects on athletic performance and post activity recovery. This course will identify key evidence based studies for an overview of the currently available evidence and provide key references for dosing, device parameters and when this treatment may provide optimal athletic benefits – including the reduction of muscular fatigue and cytoprotection from oxidative stress.




At the conclusion of this course a student should: Apply principles of evidence-based medicine to determine the clinical effectiveness of the prophylactic use of LLLT in sports performance and recovery. Use low powered laser and light devices effectively in the delivery of appropriate doses and techniques as an ergogenic aid. Evaluate and select appropriate parameters associated with optimal dose as suggested in the current literature. Articulate the basic mechanism of photo biological activity as it relates to prophylactic use.

Refund/cancellation policy: If you cancel your registration a 100% refund rate minus 20% handling fee will be processed within 7 business days.    If for any reason Multi Radiance Medical needs to cancel the date this event you will receive a credit to be applied to another session.
