High Power Laser
Half Day Training Course
The Chattanooga High Power Laser raises the game of laser treatment; its higher power achieves greater photonic delivery, shortening treatment times, generating a thermal effect, and improving healing. It can almost immediately arrest soft tissue and joint pain. Its 3 wavelengths
allow for optimal tissue absorption and it can achieve much greater
penetration depth than its low-power counterparts.
The course looks back on the history of Laser therapy, the clinical
use of Low Level Laser Therapy (LLLT) and the evidence written
about it, the physiological suppositions, indications and
contraindications. The course will then go onto consider the
development of High Power Laser (HPL), which can provide
fifty times the amount of energy than LLLT. The evidence
to support this modality and its clinical indications will
be discussed, followed by a large practical component
considering technique and clinical applications
"Thanks for organizing a great evening last night with Cliff, was extremely informative and the Compex machines were working overtime this morning!!"
- Ben Stirling at Core Physio, 2014
"The course last night was excellent, very enjoyable. I heard terms I'd not heard since I was a student (40 years ago now!).
Cliff was terrific, he made it interesting and had a first class manner."
- Philip Emm at Emm-Physio.co.uk, 2014
"The talk was very informative. Cliff, thank you for your time. You might be interested to know that I woke with no pain in my right TA today
(which was the one you treated!) this includes no tenderness on palpation. The left, untreated side remains tender.
I will certainly consider attending future events as I review how we can integrate new modalities into our clinic."
- Ishmael Beckford at Crystal Palace Physiotherapy & Sports Injury Centre, 2014

Mr Cliff Eaton
MSc BSc (Hons) MCSP
Cliff has spent his career working in professional sport at an elite level. He has been published in internationally recognised journals on sport specific rehabilitation. Cliff believes in three core skills advocated by the CSP: Manual Therapy, Exercise Therapy and Electrotherapy, combined to provide the best care management for patients.
“There is a current trend to promote a ‘hands on only’ approach to physical therapy these days” Cliff says. “Many Physical therapists I have spoken to cite lack of understanding or the lack of evidence to support the efficacy in using electrotherapy”, he continued. “Due to the reduced emphasis placed on electrotherapy at undergraduate level for physiotherapists, the former may be understandable, human nature being what it is; it will be understandable that newly qualified physiotherapists will be anxious about using electrotherapy”. Cliff adds, “A lack of evidence there is not. There is, however, a lack of awareness and understanding of the relevant literature, and this is what we wish to promote on this course, combined with a large practical element. In this way we aim to ensure the therapists feel confident in using electrotherapy within their treatment paradigms”
