Course Description

Inflammation was dubbed the “Silent Killer” by Time Magazine back in 2004 and has since held the reign as the biggest culprit of disease and dysfunctional health globally. Yet, here we are today, still looking for solutions to this troubling and persistent problem. And while multiple factors affect inflammation, the best-kept secret is right within your reach via non-thermal low-level laser therapy. This webinar will discuss the multifaceted integration points where non-thermal low-level laser can treat underlying inflammation and inflammatory-based conditions, aiming to educate providers on best practices and use cases for immediate implementation into their practice.

Learning Outcomes:
1.) Discuss the ethology, pathophysiology, and symptoms of inflammation and inflammatory-based conditions.
2.) Examine the underlying mechanisms of non-thermal low-level laser therapy and its anti-inflammatory effects.
3.) Share relevant research discussing neuro-orthopaedic, functional neurological rehabilitation, and non-thermal low-level laser therapy.
4.) Adopt best practices and evidence-based assessments for diagnosing and treating inflammatory-based conditions utilizing evidence-based practices and low-level laser therapies.

Dr. Reis is also a Certified Brain Injury Specialist through the American Brain Injury Alliance and has been a clinical educator with Erchonia for the past two years after working extensively with their world-class technologies for nearly a decade.

At The Neural Connection, his practice primarily focuses on treating complex neurological disorders that range from traumatic brain injuries (TBI’s), dysautonomia, sport-related concussions, vestibular-related disorders (Vertigo/Dizziness), complex regional pain syndromes (CRPS), headaches/migraines, and chronic pain syndromes. His treatments focus on individualized neurological rehabilitation protocols to increase function through sensorimotor training and neuro-orthopedic exercises.

He manages pain and dysfunctional movement by utilizing corrective exercises, gait-retaining protocols, and individualized neuromuscular training programs that fit his patients’ specific needs. He also utilizes comprehensive nutritional and metabolic testing to address potentially limiting dysfunctions of the immune, endocrine, and nervous systems.

Dr. Reis believes the connection between neurological function and nutritional status is essential to understanding how to fully maximize brain function, which is why he takes a multifaceted approach to improving his patient’s brain health and wellness.
