What is MLS Laser Therapy?
It is an alternative solution to treat pain in your feet. The MLS laser is a state-of-the-art therapy that assists in restoring mobility to patients with various painful foot and ankle conditions. It has been proven effective through extensive and credible studies conducted by some of the best institutions in the country, including Harvard University. This laser therapy, also known as cold laser therapy, is a healthy, alternative solution to relief of foot pain without surgery or medication. It is also used in conjunction with medications and surgery. The MLS Laser Therapy is a safe way of treating painful feet, and is effective in just a few treatments. An additional advantage is that each treatment is quick and affordable.
What does MLS stand for?
MLS stands for Multi-wave Locked System. This patented system delivers two specific synchronized wavelengths of laser light. One laser emission acts on inflammation, and the other has an analgesic, pain-relieving effect.
What to expect:
Laser therapy is a non-invasive technique to help reduce pain and inflammation. Laser therapy can be safely used as an adjunct or replacement for pharmaceutical drugs and/or surgery. This pain relief treatment is FDA cleared and enables patients to have an alternative to drugs and surgery.
Laser therapy treatments last between 5 and 10 minutes depending on the condition being treated. Laser therapy treatments must be administered directly to skin, as laser light cannot penetrate through layers of clothing. It is painless.
Safety and efficacy:
The MLS Lasers are cleared by the FDA and adhere to strict standards in order to provide you with the safest non-invasive treatment option on the market. Laser therapy provides you with a safe and effective alternative to drugs and surgery.
Most patients see results within 3 to 5 short treatments. The MLS Laser Therapy works by flooding the tissues with photons, which energizes cells, resulting in increased circulation to the injured area and ultimately pain reduction. Laser therapy allows your body to utilize its own healing powers by inducing a series of healing responses in your body. During treatment you may feel a soothing warmth that identifies the beginning of an 18-24 hour process of modulated cellular activity leading to decreased pain and inflammation. Some patients state they feel a comfortable warm sensation in the area being treated, while other patients usually don't feel the laser. There is no pain, heat, or swelling during or after the treatment.
Over 90% of patients experience positive results after the third treatment, with the average course of treatment being 7 to 10 sessions. In many cases, by the 3rd or 4th treatment, swelling is greatly reduced and there is a rapid relief of pain. The effects of MLS Laser Therapy are cumulative; therefore, expect to see improvement as you proceed through your Treatment Plan. Chronic conditions can be controlled with regular treatments. Acute conditions usually subside quickly, typically within one phase of treatments.
It is critical that once you start, you complete the course of treatments recommended by your doctor or symptoms are likely to reoccur.
