Do you fear Injections or needles? We have THE ANSWER ..... the Cutting Edge MLS Laser!
MLS Laser Therapy has optimized all factors in a Therapeutic Laser providing game changing results in considerably reduced treatment times while maintaining complete patient safety. It synchronizes continuous and pulsed emissions providing well-aimed procedures that generate simultaneous anti-inflammatory and analgesic effects, and in considerably reduced times with respect to traditional laser therapy.
MLS Laser is a cold laser which uses infrared light, which you cannot see or feel, to reduce inflammation, swelling, and pain. The anti-inflammatory effects of the infrared light work at the cellular level. Unlike medications such as cortisone injections and non-steroidal anti-inflammatory pills, laser does not suppress inflammation, but rather stimulates your own body's cells to reduce inflammation, swelling, and pain. This type of therapy is what is commonly referred to regenerative medicine.
It has been our experience that 90% of our patients who have had a course of laser treatments reported improvement and/or resolution of pain.
MLS Laser treats any musculoskeletal inflammatory condition. Common podiatric conditions include plantar fasciitis, tendinitis, bursitis, and arthritis. Nerve injuries and neuropathy can also be treated with Cold Laser Therapy. We have developed a special protocol for peripheral neuropathy to help manage chronic pain. Once your condition is resolved, it is paramount to prevent re-aggravation/inflammation from activities. For example, a thorough warm up and stretching protocol should be followed to prevent overuse injury during exercise and activity. You will still need to wear appropriate shoes (and orthotics if you have them) avoiding flimsy shoes, sandals, flip flops, etc. If your condition is a structural bone/joint problem, then Cold Laser Therapy cannot resolve that, but can manage the symptoms that are associated with it.
Typical treatments are two to three times a week for 6-10 sessions. You will need to wait at least 24 hours between treatments as we have found that you will experience soreness if too much Laser therapy is given in one area.
