Considering laser therapy for a painful foot or ankle injury or disorder? Here's what you should know.
How it Works
MLS Laser Therapy harnesses the healing power of light energy. The MLS Laser uses two synchronized wavelengths of light to penetrate the skin and underlying tissue of the affected area, relieving pain, reducing inflammation, and stimulating the healing process. Simply put: Laser therapy triggers metabolic reactions in the cells that can help you recover faster and with less pain.
Benefits Of MLS Laser Therapy
This evidence-based technology is backed by extensive research, including studies from reputable institutions such as Harvard University, which showed laser therapy to be as, or more, effective than other treatment options. Need more reasons to consider MLS Laser Therapy?
- MLS Laser Therapy is FDA approved, with the MLS Laser being cleared by the FDA for the treatment of musculoskeletal conditions.
- Laser therapy is a non-invasive, non-surgical treatment that can also help speed up the healing process after surgery.
- Therapy sessions with the MLS Laser typically last between 10 and 15 minutes.
- MLS Laser Therapy is completely painless – patients feel nothing, not even heat from the laser.
- Patients can usually bear weight and resume normal activities immediately following the session.
- MLS Laser Therapy is completely safe, with no known side effects.
- Most patients report a significant reduction in pain, swelling, and other symptoms.
That's not all: MLS Laser Therapy may also help patients return to desired activities sooner than traditional therapies. Don't have the time or patience to be out of commission and sitting on the sidelines for weeks or months like with other treatments? Find out if your condition makes you a good candidate for this innovative intervention.
