MLS Laser Therapy
Pain treatment is moving away from the popular path of surgery and painkillers to the acceleration of the body’s natural healing process through MLS Laser Therapy.
MLS Laser Therapy is not your typical laser surgery, rather it uses light to accelerate the body’s natural healing process. The therapy laser beam is moved over the skin so that the light energy (photons) painlessly penetrates the tissue where it interacts with various molecules (chromophores) that cause different biological effects.
1. What is MLS Laser Therapy and how does it work?
Laser Therapy is an FDA-cleared treatment for pain that uses concentrated light energy to stimulate the body’s own healing process. Laser therapy minimizes pain and inflammation as an alternative to prescriptions and surgery. It reduces recovery times, which is especially important post-surgery, so patients can quickly return to a higher quality of life.
MLS (multi-wave locked system) technology in specific delivers two therapeutic wavelengths – the 808nm (anti-edemic and anti-inflammatory) and the 905nm (analgesic). The combination of these wavelengths produces greater pain-relieving effects than either can produce on their own, while also minimizing the risk of thermal damage. It is this unique combination and synchronization of continuous and pulsed emissions that characterizes MLS and distinguishes it from other Class IV lasers.
2. Will it work for me?
For 85-90% of patients suffering from pain associated with arthritis, sprains or strains, sports injuries, inflammation, or other debilitating conditions, the answer is “Yes!”
Whether you have shoulder and neck pain, rotator cuff, carpal tunnel, aching knees, Achilles tendinitis, plantar fasciitis, sciatica, musculoskeletal pain or are recovering from surgery, they are likely to benefit from MLS Laser Therapy.
Laser chiropractic therapy has been used to treat pain and inflammation associated with:
Soft tissue trauma
Repetitive stress injuries
3. Is the effects of MLS Laser therapy long-lasting?
While each person and each condition varies, almost 90% of patients receive tremendous relief from their pain and inflammation when they go through a series of MLS Laser Therapy treatments.
Most patients do not need additional treatments, but some conditions, like arthritis, are degenerative. The great thing about laser therapy for arthritic patients is that once they feel better, they can be more active – helping minimize the long term effects of arthritis. Some patients prefer an occasional treatment every 4-6 weeks over the course of the year to hold the inflammation at bay and keep the arthritic pain in check.
4. Do laser therapy treatments hurt or burn?
While lasers are commonly known for their heat components or surgical cutting purposes, the patented MLS technology ensures there is no thermal tissue damage due to our unique wavelength synchronization. There may be a slight warming sensation at the treatment site, which is normal and an indication that the inflammation is being relieved and that the body is responding properly.
5. Is laser therapy covered by insurance?
While the MLS Therapy Laser is FDA-cleared, treatments aren’t covered by insurance. With rising appointment fees and out of pocket co-pays, the cost of the laser therapy treatments are actually less costly than other, more invasive treatments that are “covered” by insurance. Most treatment goals can be reached with 6-12 treatments.
