Picture this: You wake up one morning completely pain-free. No groans as you roll out of bed. No hobbling to the bathroom to brush your teeth. No wincing as you walk downstairs to make breakfast.
That picture can be your reality thanks to the healing powers of multiwave locked system (MLS) laser therapy: Keep reading to learn why the nerve and pain specialists at US Neuropathy Centers use MLS laser therapy to address pain throughout the body.
What is multiwave locked system (MLS) laser therapy?
A non-invasive pain management technique, MLS laser therapy utilizes two different levels of laser energy to relieve pain and inflammation in your body. The 808-nanometer laser reduces inflammation, while the 905-nanometer laser relieves pain.
The lasers’ therapeutic effects come largely from the stimulation of your body’s natural healing processes. This healing therapy has proved effective in treating chronic pain and some neuropathic conditions.
How is MLS laser therapy different from other laser treatments?
The main difference between MLS laser therapy and other forms of laser therapy is the multiwave mechanism. Combining the two wavelengths enables MLS laser therapy to reach different levels of body tissue in a single treatment, inducing both pain-relief and anti-inflammatory effects for immediate and long-lasting relief.
What can MLS laser therapy treat?
Our providers at US Neuropathy Centers use MLS laser therapy to treat musculoskeletal conditions, or conditions that affect your bones, joints, muscles, tendons, ligaments, and other connective tissue.
Musculoskeletal conditions, whether acute or chronic, often cause nagging aches and pains at the origin of the condition, as well as related tissues. For instance, if you’re dealing with a neck injury, you may experience pain in your shoulders, arms, and back in addition to your neck.
That said, MLS laser therapy can bring relief for a number of injuries and ailments, including:
- Tendinitis (inflammation of a tendon)
- Bursitis (inflammation of the bursa)
- Other inflammatory conditions
- Muscle strains and ligament sprains
- Arthritis pain
- Slipped spinal discs
- Post-surgical pain
- Sports injuries
At US Neuropathy Centers, we implement MLS laser therapy as part of a comprehensive treatment plan to help you achieve pain-free living.
