What is Laser Therapy?
Laser therapy is the use of specific wavelengths of light to treat painful and debilitating conditions. MLS Laser Therapy stands for "Multiwave Locked System". There are actually two lasers, each of a different wave length. One is a pulsed laser to treat swelling and inflammation and the other is a continuous laser to treat pain. This is the first system to combine both types.
How does it work?
Light energy enters the damaged cells and stimulates inter-cellular activity. This reduces pain in the area and speeds recovery of the damaged cells. Once the cells recover, the healing process is complete.
What can I expect during the treatment?
MLS Laser Therapy is a painless treatment that lasts an average of 8 minutes. You may experience a comfortable sensation at the point of application.
What can I expect after the treatments?
Most people experience positive results in 1 to 3 treatments, with the average course of treatment being 6 sessions for acute problems and to 18 sessions for chronic problems. Swelling is greatly reduced and there is a rapid relief of pain. Acute conditions usually subside quickly, typically within one phase of treatments, while chronic conditions can be controlled with regular treatments.
The effects of MLS Laser Therapy are cumulative; therefore, you should expect to see improvement as you proceed through your treatment plan. It is critical that once you start, you complete the course of treatments recommended by your doctor or symptoms are likely to reoccur.
