MLS Laser Therapy

If you have chronic pain from a sports injury, arthritis, or other form of soft tissue damage, you might feel your options are limited.

Many forms of conservative treatment can help someone manage pain and even recover, but maybe some of these methods haven’t panned out.

However, you may still have options other than surgery. One that has seen positive results for many of our patients is MLS Laser Therapy.

What is MLS Laser Therapy?

Multiwave Locked System (MLS) Laser Therapy is a form of treatment that stimulates the body’s own natural healing capabilities.

Using specific wavelengths of light energy, the MLS laser directly reaches the site of an injury to:

  • Stimulate the cellular repair process, which can accelerate wound closure and overall recovery time.
  • Increase circulation to the area, which increases the amount of oxygen and needed nutrients for cells to perform their jobs.
  • Stimulate the creation of new blood vessels (capillaries) to reach cells more effectively.
  • Reduce pain and inflammation.

A standard treatment takes about 10 minutes, and a series of successive treatments will be scheduled. The results in many cases are stellar on multiple fronts, and tend to stack over time.

What Can MLS Laser Therapy Treat?

MLS Laser Therapy is most effective on soft tissue injuries and conditions. When it comes to the feet and ankles, many problems focus on muscles, ligaments, and tendons that can respond to MLS.

Conditions for which MLS Laser Therapy may be a consideration include:

  • Plantar fasciitis
  • Arthritis
  • Sports injuries
  • Neuromas
  • Achilles tendon injuries
  • Sprains
  • Diabetic wounds

Sources of chronic pain or injuries that have not healed as quickly as expected may be a good candidate for this procedure. It also has potential for conditions where surgery is wished to be avoided (and if there is an effective alternative to surgery, it is always worth consideration).

Painless. Noninvasive. Highly Effective.

Laser therapy is FDA approved and has been proven to REDUCE PAIN, RELIEVE INFLAMMATION, and RESTORE MOBILITY.

An Advanced Option for Recovery

MLS Laser Therapy may not be for every patient. We always discuss all treatment options with our patients to ensure they have full confidence in the ultimate plan moving forward.

We would be happy to answer any questions you might have on MLS or other possible treatments. Our Medford office can be reached by calling (541) 776-3338 or filling out our online contact form.
