MLS® Laser Therapy now aims eastwards and is the focus of analysis by Doctor Patrick Herbots, a graduate of Ghent University (Belgium), during two important Vet events held in Thailand and Malaysia.
On 12th June, proceedings were opened by a full day of training on applying MLS® Laser Therapy to small animals and horses in Hua Hin (Thailand), which preceded the official start of the Kasetsart University Veterinary International Conference (KUVIC 2019). Organised by Kasetsart University - one of the most important Teaching Universities in the Far East – with the support of O’Square (ASAveterinary’s Thai partner), the KUVIC 2019 (12/14 June - Hua Hin) scientific programme included the speech by Doctor Herbots “Alternative treatment for tendinitis in the horse”. The same Doctor also spoke at the seminar “The emerging field of Laser Therapy in Veterinary: MLS® Laser Therapy", which took place in Kuala Lumpur (Malaysia) on 16th June and was implemented in collaboration with University Putra Malaysia and Medical Plus (ASAveterinary’s partner). After a section concerning the theoretical principles of MLS® Laser Therapy, the workshop continued with a practical session at the University’s Veterinary Faculty.
“The two initiatives which involved us in the front line – explains Giacomo Granozio, ASA’s Export Area Manager – envisaged the involvement of many professional who were able to personally experience the effectiveness of MLS® for treating multiple diseases affecting different species, particularly during the hands-on phase. For example, in Thailand, during the pre-KUVIC training, one of the patients treated was a sea turtle which also underwent an X-ray for a problem linked to the musculoskeletal system. A case which impressed the 40 professionals taking part, who then wished to further analyse the therapy’s uses”.
Together with the benefits, these uses were the focus of the questions asked by visitors to the stand set up by ASAveterinary’s local distributor during KUVIC 2019.
“Although this was the first edition, – Granozio concludes – thanks to the 430 registrations, this Congress has all the potential to become a leading event for developing the Vet sector which, in addition to Thailand, also has Malaysia as a developing market for the use not only of laser, but also of physical therapy and veterinary rehabilitation”.
