FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
What is MLS Laser Therapy?
The MLS Laser is FDA-cleared and uses concentrated light energy to stimulate the body's own healing process to minimize pain, inflammation and arthritis and reduce recovery times so you can return to a pain-free life. By using specific wavelengths and a patented delivery system, MLS Laser Therapy can speed up the process of relieving inflammation and pain associated with many conditions, including arthritis. The MLS Therapy Laser has a unique pain -relieving effect, which can be dramatic. Many patients feel significantly better in just a few treatments.
Will MLS Laser Therapy work for me?
For 85-90% of patients with musculoskeletal pain, inflammation or arthritis, the answer is "Yes!" Most patients with pain, inflammation or arthritis report significant pain relief from MLS Laser Therapy treatments. Whether you have sciatica, arthritis, herniated or degenerative discs, shoulder and neck pain, aching knees, spinal stenosis, or any other musculskeletal pain, you are likely to benefit from MLS Laser Therapy. As a matter of fact, many patients who were scheduled for surgery were able to delay or cancel their surgery because MLS Laser Therapy alleviated their condition and reduced or eliminated their pain.
What is the advantage of MLS Therapy over other lasers?
Until now, there have been only pulsed light lasers that control swelling and continuous light lasers that control pain, but not both. Current traditional laser therapy provides partial treatment at best by reducing inflammation or pain but never both at the same time. MLS Therapy is able to induce strong anti-inflammatory, anti-edema, and analgesic effects simultaneously and within a short period of time. LLLT cannot achieve these results because of the limitations of using one or two wavelengths that are not synchronized. The patented control system that generates the MLS pulse synchronizes the emissions to achieve results previously unattainable. Thanks to this characteristic synchronization, the various therapeutic effects not only take place at the same time but reciprocally reinforce each other.
Will it hurt?
That's a great question. Through years of reasearch and development, the MLS Laser was designed to treat conditions without an excessive thermal effect, often felt as heat. Most people report that they do not feel anything during the treatment. Occasionally, you may feel a slight warming sensation at the treatment site, which is normal and is an indication that the inflammation is being relieved and that your body is responding properly.
Is the effect long lasting?
For most patients the answer is "Yes". While each person and each condition varies, many patients receive tremendous relief from their pain and inflammation when they go through a series of MLS Laser Therapy treatments. While most patients may not need additional treatments in the future, some conditions, like arthritis, are degenerative. The great thing about the MLS Laser Therapy for arthritic patients is that once you feel better, you can be more active and it is this increased activity that helps minimize the long term effects of arthritis. Even so, you may need an occasional single MLS treatment every 4 to 6 six weeks over the course of the year to hold the inflammation at bay and keep the arthritic pain in check.
What can I expect during a treatment?
MLS Laser Therapy is a painless treatment that lasts a few minutes. Some patients have stated they feel a comfortable warm sensation in the area being treated, while other patients usually don’t feel the laser. There is no pain, heat, redness or swelling during or after treatment.
How many treatments are usually needed to get results?
Results can often be seen after the first treatment. Most conditions have protocols that range from 6-10 treatments. The treatments are cumulative and are delivered 2-3 times per week for 2-3 weeks.
