Back Clinics of Canada Introduces Class IV K-Laser

Back Clinics of Canada offers the most powerful and effective therapeutic laser of its kind in the world – Class IV K-Laser Therapy.

The Class IV K-Laser was introduced in the United States in 2003. Dr. Ron Nusbaum, founder of Back Clinics of Canada, brought the Class IV K-Laser to Canada in June 2011.

The Class IV K-Laser is different than other therapeutic lasers, largely by being able to penetrate deeper and with more power than other therapeutic lasers. It’s a medical breakthrough in therapeutic laser technology. We have observed unprecedented, robust, accelerated healing. “Patients are experiencing healing and pain relief from the very first treatment session, and the results are cumulative,” says Dr. Nusbaum. “The robust, accelerated healing is like nothing we’ve seen before, even with patients who have been suffering with their condition for years.”

Effects of Class IV K-Laser Therapy include:

improved healing time; three to five times faster than with other treatments
reduced pain
improved circulation
reduced inflammation
pain relief effects can be felt immediately

Benefits of laser therapy include:

no side effects from treatment
no scar tissue develops
no drugs are involved
it is effective for acute and chronic conditions, including post-surgical pain
each session is 15 minutes or less
effects are cumulative

How Class IV K-Laser Works

The fundamental process behind laser therapy is photobiostimulation. The Class IV K-Laser’s deep penetrating photonic energy focuses on specific cellular (soft) tissue. This increases production of ATP (Adenosine Tri-Phosphate) in the soft-tissue cells.

ATP is the substance responsible for cellular energy production.

Soft tissue is muscles, ligaments, joints capsules, vertebral discs and intra-articular surfaces.

Increased ATP in soft tissue jumpstarts a series of profound healing effects:

increased cellular function
improved circulation
reduced inflammation
improved transport of nutrients across the cell membrane
increased circulation
influx of water, oxygen and nutrients to the damaged area
reduced swelling, muscle spasms, stiffness and pain

What differentiates the Class IV K-Laser from other therapeutic lasers is that it has a unique pulse mode that delivers laser energy to deeper tissues without warming superficial tissues. It has both continuous and modulating frequencies to promote pain control and healing. Its higher power delivers a larger therapeutic dosage, resulting in shorter treatment times. Presets result in consistent and safe treatment outcomes.

Note: Not all therapeutic lasers are function or perform the same. Low laser therapy devices are Class III lasers or “cold” lasers. Their power ranges are in the range of 5 milliwatts to 500 milliwatts. The Class IV K-laser is a high-powered therapy device ranging up to 6000 milliwatts; its power is adjustable from 100 milliwatts to 12,000 milliwatts, allowing for a wide range of treatment protocols. This power and penetration of the K-laser system is not attainable with cold laser devices.

Conditions Treated by Class IV K-Laser Therapy

Thousands of published studies attests to the clinical effectiveness of laser therapy. More than 100 controlled, scientific studies document the effectiveness of laser therapy for many clinical conditions. Medical research continues to uncover the ever-expanding range of applications of the Class IV Laser.

“While Back Clinics of Canada is first and foremost a back pain clinic, we are now helping patients shoulder, wrist and knee pain,” says Dr. Nusbaum. “In fact, the list of conditions that we can help is quite extensive.”

More to the Trucking Industry Than Just Driving: Dispatcher Training

There’s no doubt about it: the trucking industry is a pillar of our economy. According to Transport Canada, this industry, which is said to be responsible for the flow of most goods between the Canada and the U.S., generated an estimated $67 billion of revenues in 2005. Although Statistics Canada has identified “truck driver” as the most frequently cited occupation for Canadian men, it is clearly not the job for everyone: it can mean long hours and lots of time away from home. But there is another way to get involved with this lucrative industry: by taking dispatcher courses at dispatcher school.
What Does a Truck Dispatcher Do?
Dispatchers are communications specialists. They are sometimes described as the nerve centre or command central for trucking companies, because they coordinate the movements of all trucks and freight. They:
• match freight with trucks, ensuring that the company’s assets are well used at all times (i.e., that no truck makes a long trip without carrying a load)
• map out routes
• assign drivers to trucks
• facilitate border crossings
• consolidate orders
• keep records
• make arrangements for specialized freight
• optimize fuel use
• ensure that drivers have required certifications
• act as a link between the customer and the trucker
• keep track of truck maintenance schedules
• coordinate inspections
• log all communications
Do You Have the Right Personality to Consider Dispatcher Training?
Thinking of taking dispatcher courses, but wondering if you have what it takes? Ideally, dispatchers should:
• be sociable people
• like using computer tools
• be comfortable with staying seated at a station eight hours a day, five days a week
• have strong decision-making skills
• be able to multi-task
Typically, they need a high school diploma. Some dispatcher schools also offer specialized training in dispatching, teaching dispatchers how to use the tools of the trade.
What Kinds of Technological Tools Do Dispatchers Use?
Dispatchers use a variety of tools, including:
• Global Position System (GPS) – Satellite systems are used to keep track of trucks and orders in real time.
• two-way radio
• telephone
• computers
• PC Miler: a mapping software that helps dispatchers plan routes
• LoadLink: an Internet tool that helps companies manage loads
• Freight Logix
Interested? The Next Step is to Find a Dispatcher School
If you like the idea of making sure that a trucking operation is well run, you may want to consider taking dispatcher training. It could make you more attractive to potential employers.

Responsibilities of the Carrier Under the Final FDA FSMA Rules on the Transportation of Human and Animal Foods

This webinar covers the Final Rules on the Sanitary Transportation of Human and Animal Foods (now law) as published by the Food and Drug Administration under the Food Safety Modernization Act (FSMA).

Overview:

Over 84,000 food shippers, carriers and receivers are impacted by this new law and most have less than one year for full compliance. This new law may require significant changes to procedures currently employed for food transportation operations, personnel, vehicles, containers, trailers tools and equipment used in food transportation. The final rules have now established the law which has significant differences from earlier published proposed food transportation rules, laws and guidance documents. Self-reporting of compliance failures is required as are critical shipper-carrier agreements for data, records and reporting.

The FDA defines a carrier as a “person who owns, leases, or is otherwise ultimately responsible for the use of a motor vehicle or rail vehicle to transport food. The carrier is responsible for all functions assigned to a carrier in this subpart even if they are performed by other persons, such as a driver that is employed or contracted by a trucking firm. A carrier may also be a receiver or a shipper if the person also performs the functions of those respective persons as defined in this subpart.”

Why Should You Attend:

The final rules on the Sanitary Transportation of Human and Animal Foods establish training requirements for all carrier personnel committed to shipper food transportation operation responsibilities. This training is not “maybe” training but is REQUIRED for all carrier personnel engaged in transportation operations upon hiring and as needed thereafter if the carrier has responsibilities for sanitation, temperature control and associated documentation.

What carriers are exempt from these training requirements?

Carriers with an average annual income less than $500,000 requirements
Carriers of food completely enclosed by a container
Carriers of live food animals, except molluscan shellfish
Carriers whose shippers will assume carrier responsibilities under the rules

Areas Covered In This Webinar:

This webinar includes contracts of carriage and agreements; system assessment strategy; flowcharting your operations, establishing critical parameters and measurement; standards for management, validation of preventive controls, sanitation, temperature monitoring and container (vehicles, trailers and shipping containers), traceability and training; procedures, record keeping and retention; audit and certification, training, wash, ATP and bacteria testing, inspection and re-inspection requirements, calibration, MSDS, statistical analysis and records retention.

Who is impacted by the FDA Rules on the Sanitary Transportation of Human and Animal Foods?

The final law applies to shippers, receivers, loaders, and carriers engaged in transportation operations on U.S. roads or by rail whether or not the food is being offered for or enters interstate commerce.

Learning Objectives:

• Understand US FDA FSMA Law for the Sanitary Transportation of Human and Animal Foods

• Understand changes from the proposed FDA FSMA rules

• Know the different requirements for shippers, carriers and receivers
