Course Description

CEU Course Description

Peripheral neuropathy is a common complaint of diabetes, leading to pain and reduced motor nerve conduction velocity.  The goal of this CEU course is to evaluate and compare the effect of low-level laser therapy (LLLT) versus pulsed electromagnetic field (PEMF) on pain intensity and motor nerve conduction velocity (MNCV) in patients with diabetic neuropathy.

 

CEU Course Objectives

  1. Explain the reason why several clinical and experimental research studies on peripheral nerve injuries use LLLT.
  2. Investigate which sensory afferent nerve fibers are affected by diabetic polyneuropathy.
  3. Compare and contrast the benefits between PEMF and LLLT.
  4. Identify what is mostly attributed to nerve damage of polyneuropathy.
