What is Multiwave Locked System (MLS) laser therapy?
MLS laser therapy is an FDA-approved treatment that combines high power and low power light wavelengths to stimulate your body’s healing response and reduce pain.
The wavelengths provide more significant relief than either could deliver on its own. The controlled laser energy reduces inflammation, edema, and pain without causing any thermal damage to your skin, muscles, or other tissue.
The team at US Neuropathy Centers incorporates MLS laser therapy into customized treatment plans to address neuropathic pain throughout the body. The treatment can accelerate your healing process and help you recover from injuries quickly and safely.
What are the benefits of MLS laser therapy?
MLS laser therapy offers a comprehensive array of benefits that contribute to pain relief. For example, the treatment itself is quick, noninvasive, and painless, and it delivers:
- Anti-inflammatory effects
- Pain relief
- An increase in tissue repair and cell growth
- Improved circulation
- Trigger point release
- A reduction in fibrous tissue formation
- Nerve function improvement
MLS laser therapy can help with a wide range of painful conditions, including neuropathy, neuromas, traumatic nerve pain, diabetic wounds, and back and joint pain. It may also help you avoid surgery.
What should I expect during MLS laser therapy?
An MLS laser therapy treatment only takes around eight minutes. While you relax on a comfortable treatment table, your doctor directs the laser at your injured tissue. You may experience a warming sensation, but no pain or other negative side-effects.
Most patients have a series of between 7-10 treatments. You may start to see an improvement after your first treatment. You need to complete the recommended number of MLS laser therapy sessions for optimal results.
Additionally, your doctor may recommend that you have occasional follow-up treatments to maintain effects.
