It is with great honor that the North American Association for Photobiomodualtion Therapy welcomes you to Detroit, Michigan for a truly historical congress.
The use of medical lasers and therapeutic light based devices for photobiomodulation therapy represents the future for dentistry, medicine and veterinarian medicine.
No area of science holds greater hope for the future of our patients than photobiomodulation therapy.
Photobiomodulation therapy (PBM) is an effective treatment for acute and chronic pain which can be effectively integrated into interdisciplinary protocols for maximizing the recovery of patients presenting with a broad range of underlying medical conditions. Photobiomodulation therapy (PBM) is also an effective aging prevention and treatment which can be used in the application of integrative medicine for the internal well-being and recovery of our patients.
Over the next three days our faculty for the NAALT 2018 interdisciplinary scientific conference will combine the best of research with the best of clinical application in medicine, dentistry and veterinarian medicine to demonstrate exciting advances in the care and treatment of our patients.
This years conference will focus on the theme of photobiomodulation therapy in the drug free management of pain.
Together you and I have been given the unique opportunity to develop and promote a science that truly has the ability to change the lives of each one of our patients and in fact to change the future of the nations of the earth.
No greater gift is given to a nation than its people. From birth to geriatrics, photobiomodulation as part of the comprehensive integrative plan offers a hope to treat and cure medical conditions previously thought to have no treatment.
There is no medical condition or dental condition or veterinarian condition that cannot be improved and/or cured as a result of the application of photobiomodulation therapy.
Photobiomodulation therapy enhances longevity; quality of life and rejuvenation of injuries while slowing the effects of aging in general.
The greater science of integrative medicine combined with photobiomodulation therapy offers to the people of all nations the opportunity to receive treatment and to recover from their underlying medical conditions. Integrative medicine provides the opportunity to extend life. The practice of integrative medicine incorporating photobiomodulation therapy crosses all political, national, racial and sexual boundaries. Integrative medicine using photobiomodulation offers to a sometimes confusing world the hope of a better tomorrow through science.
As you look around this room there lies the knowledge, education, the training and the wisdom to provide PBM treatments to the people of the world which will change lives, strengthen nations and provide a true hope for a better tomorrow.
You are to be congratulated on attending this incredible congress.
All of us here at NAALT, the North American Association of Photobiomodulation Therapy want to thank you for the opportunity to play a role in the success of your practice whether it be research, clinical, dental or veterinarian. We look forward to working together with you as colleagues. We welcome you to visit Detroit. We look forward to the opportunities to visit with you and to learn from you during this congress.
This year join with me as we focus on the ability to provide opioid free management of painful conditions. Opioid use for pain management is being widely utilized throughout the world and has created many side effects and struggles for our patients.
This congress in Detroit Michigan will focus on the use of photobiomodulation to provide opioid free pain management.
Today, it is with great expectation and excitement that I welcome you to this congress and open the annual 2018 NAALT Scientific Conference.
Welcome to Detroit. Welcome to the Science of Photobiomodulation. Welcome to the opportunity to explore ideas and to learn more about this exciting new science and how you might utilize it in your clinical practice. Also an understanding of the research necessary to substantiate our growing clinical findings.
