What happens when you or a loved one has suffered a foot or ankle injury and pain doesn’t seem to go away with time. Perhaps you are looking for a solution that will permit you to recover from a surgery or an injury as fast as possible. By adding MLS laser therapy to a comprehensive treatment plan, we can reduce pain and inflammation while accelerating recovery – all while reducing the need for medications, shots or additional surgery.
What is MLS Laser?
MLS or Multiwave Locked System laser therapy uses a pair of synchronized lasers to stimulate the cells at a site of injury in a way that reduces pain and inflammation while encouraging healing. The first wavelength, given continuously at 808 nanometers reduces inflammation and swelling while the second wavelength, pulsed at 905 nanometers targets nerve tissue to relieve pain.
Once absorbed by the body, these specific wavelengths of light stimulate a series of cellular responses in the tissues that result in an increase in cellular metabolism and an increase in both the formation of new capillaries and lymphatic drainage. As a result, the body’s healing is jump-started, and swelling is reduced. Pain subsides more quickly without reliance on pain medications or injections. Healing may be accelerated as much as 30-50%!
What conditions does MLS Laser Therapy treat?
MLS Laser Therapy treats a wide range of painful foot and ankle conditions including:
- Heel pain including Plantar Fasciitis and Achilles Tendonitis
- Sprains and Fractures
- Tendon Injuries and Tendonitis
- Tarsal Tunnel Syndrome
- Post-Surgical Pain and swelling
- Sports Injuries
What are the treatments like?
A treatment session typically lasts less than 15 minutes and is completely painless. The number of treatments given depend on the nature of the condition and the severity of the symptoms and typically range from three to twelve in number – usually given two to three times per week. There is no specific preparation or aftercare required for MLS Laser Therapy.
What results can be expected?
While over 80% of our patients experience excellent results with MLS Laser Therapy, the benefits are not always realized immediately after the first treatment.
Like an antibiotic regimen, each dose is cumulative in its effectiveness, building off the previous dose. Therefore, it is critical that the course of treatments be completed as prescribed, otherwise symptoms may return. It typically takes two to three treatments before most patients notice significant improvement.
As treatment progresses, patients will typically experience decreased pain and swelling, accelerated wound healing, increased range of motion and improved function.
