PBM2021 will focus on PBM becoming a mainstream medical procedure. Institutions such as NICE in the UK and medical insurance companies in the US now recognize PBM as “medically necessary”. Regulatory gatekeepers, reimbursement experts, and policy officials will be invited to explain the roadmap to medical acceptance. Last year, 627 academic papers were published on PBM bringing the total to over 7,000 in the last 30 years. This conference will be about leveraging this body of science to make PBM more readily available.
30 YEARS OF WALT AND NAALT
Our previous 30 conferences have inspired the academics and clinicians who have brought PBM to the threshold of mainstream acceptance. Our events grew from a few dozen people 30 years ago to 380 at the last WALT meeting, and there is every reason to expect even more with this combined event featuring the global reach and convenience of a virtual event.
SHARING NEW APPLICATIONS AND PRACTICAL KNOWLEDGE
The foremost authorities will present their latest research on all aspects of Photobiomodulation including mechanisms of action, physiological changes, clinical research, and consensus guidelines. At previous events, presentations included nerve regeneration, traumatic brain injury, Parkinson’s disease, dementia, depression, improved cognitive function in healthy people, musculoskeletal pain, neuropathic pain, osteoarthritis, macular degeneration, heart attack, stroke, chronic kidney disease, COVID-19, cancer treatment side-effects (Oral mucositis, xerostomia, radiation dermatitis, lymphoedema, dysphasia), opioid use disorder, and a wide range of dental and veterinary applications.
