What is MLS Laser?
MLS laser therapy is a non-invasive, safe, and effective treatment where light is used to relieve pain, reduce inflammation and promote wound healing. It is extremely effective for post-operative wound healing. The laser works by converting light into biochemical energy, resulting in normal cell function, which causes symptoms to disappear.
How is MLS treatment done?
The MLS laser is fully robotic and placed 8 inches above the skin allowing the healing energy to penetrate tissues, where it interacts with various intracellular bio-molecules resulting in the restoration of normal cell function. Think of this like photosynthesis in plants. There is little to no sensation during treatment, many patients find it relaxing and fall asleep!
Why is laser therapy better than other forms of therapy?
MLS laser therapy does not require the use of drugs or surgery, there are no known side effects, and it is quick. Studies performed at Harvard show it is as effective as physical therapy, if not more.
How long does treatment take?
This depends on the size of the injury. For smaller areas, a single treatment may last only 10-15 minutes. Treatments are typically received 2-3 times a week and typical treatment protocol ranges between 6 and 12 visits.
