What is MLS Laser Therapy?

Published on June 1st, 2018

Lasers are increasingly being used in our offices for multiple treatments. Through a series of specific wavelengths of light, our professionals are able to treat a multitude of issues. We also offer MLS laser therapy that is useful in treating a variety of issues. Here’s what you need to know about MLS laser therapy.

What Does It Treat?

If you are suffering from heel pain, any sprains, strains or tendonitis, MLS laser therapy could be an effective treatment option. It’s also helpful in treating arthritis, bursitis, sports injuries, neuropathy, muscoskeletal disorders, post-surgical pain and swelling, and general foot pain.

How Does MLS Laser Therapy Work?

As light from the laser enters through damaged cells, it stimulates intercellular activity. Not only does this reduce pain in the damaged area, but it also speeds up the recovery of the cell-healing process. The best part? This process is painless, non-invasive and, on average, it lasts eight minutes. Most people need around three treatment sessions to begin experiencing results, and the average course of treatment is around 7-10 sessions.

Benefits

The benefits of MLS laser therapy are seemingly endless. First, there is an anti-inflammatory effect that is useful in aiding many conditions. There is also an analgesic effect as well as improved vascular activity and an increase in metabolic activity. Through MLS laser therapy, wounds will heal faster and it will help improve nerve function.

This treatment is approved by the FDA and has proven success in many studies that have taken place in the United States. If you think MLS laser therapy is a valuable treatment option for you, contact Alpine Foot Specialists to set up an appointment!
