Technology has revolutionized the field of medicine, offering new and innovative approaches to diagnosing and treating medical problems. One of the most impressive treatment options is MLS Laser Therapy, which is non-invasive, safe, and effective. This therapy uses light to reduce pain, inflammation, and to promote wound healing and soft tissue repair. It is a truly remarkable technology that is improving lives on a daily basis.
Our MLS laser is truly one-of-a-kind. Unlike lower-level lasers used by physical therapists, this dual-wave, laser therapy system offers deeper penetration with no heat produced, resulting in faster healing with no known side effects. We understand that patients may have many questions about MLS laser therapy, and its potential benefits. In this article, you can find answers to some of the most common questions we receive.
What is MLS Laser Therapy?
The MLS Laser is a non-invasive method for treating various injuries, such as sprains, strains, and inflammation. This technique uses energy generated by concentrated light (lasers) to reduce pain and promote the healing of soft tissue. It is also an effective way to accelerate the healing process following surgery.
What does MLS mean?
MLS, which stands for “Multiwave Locked System”, is a revolutionary technology that utilizes a patented combination of different wavelengths, which are combined to reinforce each other. This allows users to benefit from the individual effects of each wavelength in one convenient session. The wavelengths act similarly to a symphony, working in unison to provide greater penetration and therefore, more effective results.
How does MLS work?
During MLS laser treatments, light energy is directed into the soft tissue, targeting damaged cells. This light energy is then converted into biochemical energy, similar to the photosynthesis process seen in plants. This energy accelerates cellular reproduction and growth, thus initiating the healing process. Additionally, the light waves emitted by the MLS laser trigger an anti-inflammatory response in the affected cells, which is essential for reducing inflammation and pain.
Laser Therapy vs Traditional Therapy
MLS Laser Therapy is a revolutionary treatment as it combines multiple energy wavelengths with its patented technology, enabling it to reduce inflammation, ease pain, and reduce swelling at the same time. Moreover, it does not require drugs or surgery, has no known side effects, and is quick and convenient. Research conducted by Harvard University and other institutions has proven that laser therapy is just as efficient, if not more, than other non-invasive techniques such as physical therapy.
Does MLS hurt?
There is little or no sensation during treatment. There is no pain associated with laser application. In fact, laser treatment is relaxing enough that some people even fall asleep.
How long does the treatment take?
A typical session lasts 10 to 15 minutes, depending on the size of the area to be treated. This makes it a very quick and convenient treatment option – you’ll be in and out in less than 20 minutes!
How many treatments does it take?
Treatment plans are case-by-case and depend on the type of condition or injury being treated. A typical treatment plan is a total of 6 or 12 sessions, depending on whether the problem is acute or chronic, 2 to 3 times per week. Conditions like severe arthritis may require regular treatment to maintain positive effects on pain.
How long before results are felt?
It also depends on the patient and the problem being treated. These sessions are cumulative, meaning they build on top of each session. Some patients reported immediate improvement after the first treatment, with the greatest improvement after the third treatment. For chronic conditions, it may take as many as six doctor visits before you really feel the benefits of laser treatment. In short, everyone responds to this therapy in a slightly different way.
Do the results last?
While some treatments are used to manage symptoms, MLS laser therapy is all about healing the damaged tissue that is causing your pain. If you feel better after treatment, it’s because you really do feel better. That means unless you hurt yourself again, the results last a long time.
Can it be used at the same time as other treatments?
Absolutely. In fact, MLS therapy is sometimes even more effective when combined with other treatments such as physical therapy and massage therapy.
Is MLS Laser Therapy right for everyone?
While MLS laser therapy is extremely safe for the vast majority of patients, including those with metal implants, certain issues (such as cancer or pregnancy) may prompt us to recommend a different treatment approach. We will perform a thorough evaluation to make sure MLS laser therapy makes sense for you.
How do I know if laser therapy is right for me?
As with other treatment options, it is best to consult your doctor to see if MLS laser therapy is right for you. Dr. Daniel Danieley will discuss your injury, pain, and medical history to find out how MLS laser therapy can fit into your treatment and prevention plan.
