What is MLS Laser Therapy?
The innovative and patented Multiwave Locked System (MLS) Therapy Laser was developed in an effort to produce an efficient and simultaneous effect on pain, inflammation, and edema, exceeding the limits of traditional LLLT (low power) laser therapy. It is this unique combination and synchronization of continuous and pulsed emissions that characterizes MLS and distinguishes it from other Class IV lasers.
With high levels of efficacy, safety, and consistency, MLS Laser Therapy can help relieve pain and restore lives.
What Conditions Can MLS Laser Treat?
MLS Laser Therapy effectively treats pain and inflammation associated with the following conditions:
- Plantar Fasciitis
- Sports injuries
- Tendon & ligament injuries
- Back & joint pain
- Muscle sprains & strains
- Post-surgical swelling
- Disc disease
How Often are Treatments needed?
Results can often been seen after the first treatment. Most conditions have protocols that range from 6-12 treatments. The treatments are cumulative and are delivered 2-3 times per week for 2-3 weeks for maximum relief.
How Many Sessions are needed?
The number of treatments prescribed depends on the nature of the condition being treated. Laser therapy is administered in multiple treatment sessions over several weeks:
- 6 sessions over the course of 2-3 weeks for acute conditions, such as: acute neck or back pain, acute joint pain, sprains and strains, and post-operative pain
- 12 sessions over the course of 6 weeks for chronic conditions, such as: tendonitis, plantar fasciitis, chronic muscle strains, neuropathy, and slow wound healing
How Does MLS Laser alleviate Pain?
MLS Laser Therapy has a beneficial effect on nerve cells. It blocks pain transmitted by these cells to the brain which decreases nerve sensitivity. Also, due to the decreased inflammation, there is less edema and less pain. Another pain blocking mechanism involves the production of high levels of pain killing chemicals such as endorphins and enkephalin from the brain and adrenal glands.
