Background

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

Mr Cliff Eaton

MSc BSc (Hons) MCSP

Background

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”
