MLS Laser Therapy for Pain

The MLS or “Multi-Wave Locked System” delivers two synchronized wavelengths of laser light. One emission acts on inflammation while the other has pain-relieving effects. This therapy has been cleared by the FDA and is used for lower extremity conditions ranging from musculoskeletal issues (tendonitis, arthritis, trauma) to nerve pain. Laser therapy is a safe non-invasive modality also indicated in patients with acute and chronic pain.

Here are some commonly asked questions:

Q: How does it work?

A: The laser penetrates deeply into the tissue to accelerate and encourage cellular repair and growth while decreasing inflammation.

Q: What can I expect during treatment?

A: Therapy is painless. Treatment time can range from 7 to 10 minutes depending on the pathology.

Q: How many treatments are required?

A: Acute injuries such as an ankle sprain can be treated in as few as 6 sessions. More chronic conditions require at least 10 sessions.

Q: What are the benefits?

A: Rapid relief of pain, timely healing of sprains and strains, improvement of local blood circulation, improvement in swelling, decreasing the need for strong medications, and avoiding expensive surgeries.
