Low Level Laser Educational Symposium

Master Priority Principle® to Gain Superior Outcomes
Multi Radiance Super Pulsed Laser Certification Course
November 14-17, 2019
Orlando, Florida USA


Get out of the cold and into to the sun!  Experience first-hand the benefits of photobiomodulation therapy in beautiful Orlando.  Super pulsed laser therapy is an exciting modality, but it can be confusing for novice users.  We’ve developed a program that breaks down the mystery of Laser/Light Therapy and explores the scientific and clinical applications as it relates to current practice.

This program is designed to address the most common questions posed by clinicians while exploring all aspects of laser and light therapy including basic science, research and technical specifications of therapeutic laser/light devices.  Evidence-based research is presented and goes beyond the didactic to include practical and clinically relevant treatment techniques and protocols for users to take back to clinic and begin using immediately.  Additionally, we will have a hands-on demonstration for commonly treated clinical conditions and creating your own protocols by using Priority Principle®.  These will be presented and demonstrated to ensure clinicians are confident and capable of safely and effectively implements laser/light therapy into their office.

Course Objectives:

  • 1Understand the basic biological photochemical reactions to laser/light therapy, and all basic light therapy parameters necessary for successful clinical outcomes
  • 2Review current, relevant and evidence-based literature as it relates to the efficacy of laser therapy in clinical settings
  • 3Implement and explore Priority Principle® protocols for administering laser therapy for a wide variety of frequent clinical conditions 
  • 4Attendees that complete the course will receive a Certificate from Laser Therapy University on the use of Multi Radiance lasers.
