Day 1 : Tissue Repair and the Influence of Therapy
Introduction / Overview – The Phases of Repair
Inflammation : An essential for the Repair Sequence
Profliferation : The construction of the Basic Repair
Remodelling : Refinement of the scar for optimum quality and function
Can Electrophysical Modalities influence this sequence – and if so which
are optimal
Day 2 : Electrophysical Modalities and Tissue Repair – making Optimal
Clinical Choices
Radiofrequency + Pulsed Shortwave
Shockwave Therapy
Clinical Decision Making based on the Evidence
