What is MLS Laser Therapy?
When our doctors recommend this form of treatment, you will probably want to know what it is and, perhaps more importantly, will it fix the problem for you.
The MLS laser is a noninvasive (no surgery!) technique for treating certain strains, sprains, and even general inflammation. Treatment capitalizes on energy produced by concentrated levels of light (lasers) to promote pain relief and soft tissue healing.
During MLS laser treatment sessions, the light energy penetrates deeply into your soft tissue and reaches damaged cells. The energy stimulates natural healing processes by speeding up cellular reproduction and growth. This advanced treatment option is particularly effective for soft tissues like muscles, ligaments, and tendons, all of which are found in great abundance in feet and are frequently affected by sports related injuries. The specific light wavelengths produced by the MLS laser initiate strong anti-inflammatory responses by the cells in these tissues, which is essential for reducing swelling and pain.
When our doctors use this advanced therapy for you, they start by outlining the area being treated, and then the laser is applied to the appropriate location in a rhythmic manner. We calibrate the MLS laser precisely to deliver energy in predetermined pulses, wavelengths, therapeutic dosages, and durations.
The continuous laser emissions and precise synchronization continue during your session to provide an effective therapeutic result by triggering the aforementioned cellular responses. You may not be able to physically see the MLS laser working as it quickly brings your damaged cells up to an optimal condition, but you will feel the difference.
There are additional benefits to laser therapy, including improved circulation to the damaged or injured area. This further aids your natural healing processes by supplying the essential nutrients, oxygen, and water to promote cellular recovery and fully nourish the cells. Additionally, you will find that this treatment contributes to reduced frequency and muscles spasms in the area.
