High Intensity Laser Therapy Applications

This course has been created to help clinicians elevate the level of care provided for their sleep and TMD patients. It will review why High Intensity Laser Therapy (HILT) with the DEKA Nd:YAG laser not only improves healing and recovery, but also significantly enhances repair and regeneration of compromised structures, including cartilage and bone. Attendees will learn how HILT is more effective than Low Level Laser Therapy (LLLT) using treatment protocols that have been proven to provide quick and painless results as well as how to deliver analgesia and minimize trigger point pain within minutes of application. Clinicians will have the opportunity to gain hands-on experience treating painful areas to see first hand how quickly pain reduction can be achieved. Better outcomes coupled with faster treatment times is now possible due to this technology.
