Class IV laser therapy – Science and implementation in veterinary practice

Speaker: Dr David Bradley


Friday 18th November: 11:30-12:30 - Exhibitor Showcase Theatre

This seminar will cover the most up-to-date science, research, and clinical cases associated with laser therapy. Attendees will understand the cellular and biological mechanisms behind the healing properties of therapeutic Lasers. All wavelengths, power ranges, and frequency modes of delivery will be thoroughly reviewed. Special emphasis will be placed on explaining the practical approach to improving clinical outcomes and the optimal techniques, protocols, and Laser parameters that will consistently produce the very best clinical results. Practical solutions will be presented to illustrate how simple it is to successfully launch Laser therapy into your practice.

Learning Points:

  1. Attendees will leave with an understanding of the different ways lasers are used in medicine
  2. They will understand the broad range of clinical applications for therapeutic lasers
  3. They will understand how the different parameters (Wavelength, Power, Frequency Modulation) are used to optimize clinical results

Speaker: Russell Chandler , Advanced Practitioner in Small Animal Orthopaedics

Thursday 17th November: 14:00 - 15:00 - Exhibitor Showcase Theatre

The practice of musculoskeletal disease management is undergoing a rapid expansion in available treatment modalities. The traditional approaches of single drug therapy and activity restriction are rapidly disappearing. Clinicians need to be equipped with a broad knowledge of the recent developments in order to integrate these into a logical and individualised package of treatments. Platelet rich plasma lends itself to management of a variety of conditions most notably osteoarthritis and musculoskeletal trauma. It is a relatively simple and safe method of introducing regenerative medicine into a practice setting.

Learning Outcome:

  1. Why PRP is useful
  2. When PRP can be used
  3. How PRP is administered
  4. Where PRP is in the multimodal osteoarthritis algorithm
