What is MLS Laser Therapy?

Technological advances have made remarkable differences in countless areas of our lives, and especially in the medical field. The human body hasn’t changed all that much over the past couple of centuries, but medical professionals now have advanced ways of communicating information, seeing what is happening inside the body, and treating various conditions.

One of the recent advances that is quite beneficial for human health and wellbeing—and one we are proud to offer here at Premier Podiatry Group—is the use of laser therapy.We can clear up stubborn cases of fungal nails with concentrated beams of light, and multi-wave lock system (MLS) laser also is used to promote healing in damaged soft tissues and provide pain relief for common conditions like plantar fasciitis and Achilles tendinitis.

During MLS laser therapy, light energy deeply penetrates through body tissue to reach damaged cells and then stimulate natural healing activity by accelerating cellular reproduction and growth. This therapy is particularly effective for soft tissues—ligaments, tendons, and muscles—all of which are found in great abundance in the feet and are often affected by injury. The specific light wavelengths used in this process trigger anti-inflammatory responses, which are essential for reducing swelling and pain in the affected area.

When using this laser treatment for pain, we precisely calibrate the laser to deliver energy in predetermined durations, pulses, wavelengths, and therapeutic dosages. The detailed synchronization, dual action, and continuous laser emissions combine to create the necessary responses and provide an effective therapeutic effect in damaged tissue. The MLS laser works to quickly restore cells to their optimal condition.

This process leads to faster healing, improved circulation, and reduced pain, but the news gets even better when you find out that MLS laser therapy is painless and FDA-approved (which is your assurance it is completely safe)! Treatment time is minimal, with the average session needing less than ten minutes. Some pharmacological solutions for pain and medical conditions produce undesirable side effects, but this is not the case for laser treatment.
