Phototherapy in Animal Practice CPD (Suffolk)
Phototherapy using visible and infrared light, or photobiomodulation is the application of non-ionising therapeutic light or photon energy to stimulate cellular energy. Until recently, most of the CPD education has been with the use of laser devices that can pose risk to eyes and tissue depending on the classification. Safer modern LED (light-emitting diode) devices are now available for both practitioner and home use and are demonstrating comparable treatment results. We believe in the importance of understanding the difference between laser and modern LED (Light Emitting Diode) devices so practitioners can make an informed choice on which devices to use.
