MLS Laser Therapy

What is MLS?

  • MLS stands for Multi-Wave Locked System.  The MLS Therapy Laser treats pain, inflammation, and arthritis.
  • Laser therapy was cleared by the FDA in 2002 and is currently being used by a variety of medical specialties, as well as professional sports teams, including the Dallas Cowboys and Cleveland Cavaliers.
  • The laser can penetrate 3-5cm deep and generates no heat.  There are no known harmful effects.

How Do Lasers Work?

  • Laser energy stimulates the removal of toxins from the cells and allow oxygen into the cell.
  • MLS Laser Therapy can decrease healing time by 30-40%.
  • The MLS Laser stimulates your body’s cells to jump start the body’s own healing process.
  • Like an antibiotic, each treatment is cumulative in its effectiveness, building off the previous treatments.
  • Patients will need a minimum 6 treatments depending on the level of pain.
  • While laser therapy is among the most advanced technology in all of medicine, it is too new to be covered by insurance.  The good thing is that it is non-invasive, an alternative to addictive pain medications, and maybe an alternative to surgery in some cases.

MLS Laser Therapy can be used to treat the following conditions:

Arthritis & Bursitis Repetitive Motion Injuries Occupational Injuries
Backache & Sciatica Hip, Knee, & Lumbar Pain Sprains & Strains
Rotator Cuff Tendonitis Achilles Tendonitis Sports Injuries
Neck & Shoulder Injuries Epicondylitis Heel & Foot Pain
