A novel treatment modality for photobiomodulation (PBM) is introduced called High Intensity Physio Light (HIPL)
Therapy with a light source at 640 nm wavelength, 20 nm bandwidth, and up to 20 W in large 10 cm flat beam.
This report exemplifies the efficacy performance of this method with three pre-clinical cases: (i) ankle: sport injury,
(ii) foot: bone fractures, and (iii) shoulder: musculoskeletal disorder (MSD). In all cases, the patients systematically
experienced a significant pain reduction (by 2 / 10 - 4 / 10) on a visual pain scale. In case (ii) and (iii), a steady
improvement and complete recovery of the patient was respectfully obtained. This report describes the experimental
treatment condition for each case, and introduces an intensity-dependant propagation model to explain our observation.

Conference Presentations are recordings of oral presentations given at SPIE conferences and published as part of the proceedings. They include the speaker's narration with video of the slides and animations. Most include full-text papers. Interactive, searchable transcripts and closed captioning are now available for 2018 presentations, with transcripts for prior recordings added daily.
