THOR Training dates and cities:

We study LLLT relentlessly (had you noticed?). We use our knowledge to develop our training, treatments and products. Come see what we have learned since your last training. Now available with Continuing Medical/Dental Education credits.

  • What is the difference between the anti-inflammatory effects of LLLT, the healing and the analgesic mechanisms?
  • Have you thought about treating lymphatics?
  • Are you de-activating trigger points (and how does that work!)?
  • How much LLLT is enough, how much is too much?
  • Joules or J/cm2 - which is the right way to express dose and how is it calculated?
  • Lasers or LEDs, red or infrared wavelengths, high or low power density, pulsed or continuous?
  • Treatment times and treatment intervals and when to expect a result.
  • Safety, contraindications, adverse effects, regulations and reimbursement

It seems like a lot to learn in one day but we use videos, cartoons and a 50 page illustrated book to help you so very little note-taking is required. A certificate of attendance is provided.

Discounts for groups, repeat attendees and early registration.

Bad News: BMJ snubs LLLT for neck pain, again but gives drugs with no evidence a pass

As reported here in 2013 there are no licensed drugs for non-specific neck pain because "there isn't much specific research that shows drugs help neck pain". For LLLT/PBM however, there are at least 16 (mostly positive) RCTs and a positive systematic review  published in The Lancet. So I did something about it, guess what happened ...
