MLS Laser Therapy uses specific wavelengths of light that have a strong anti-inflammatory, anti-edema effect on tissues that are exposed to the laser. Painful conditions accompanied by swelling or inflammation benefit from this technology.
Photons of laser energy penetrate deeply into tissue and accelerate cellular reproduction and growth. As a result of exposure to the MLS Laser, the cells of tendons, ligaments and muscles repair themselves faster. As inflammation is reduced pain subsides very quickly. In simple terms, laser energy kick-starts the healing process, thereby speeding recovery.

Therapeutic Effects of Laser Treatment: During each painless treatment, laser energy increases circulation, drawing water, oxygen, and nutrients to the damaged area. This creates an optimal healing environment that reduces inflammation, swelling, muscle spasms, stiffness and pain. As the injured area returns to normal, function is restored and pain is relieved.
Cellular Effects of Laser Therapy: During laser therapy the infrared laser light interacts with tissues at the cellular level and metabolic activity increases within the cell, improving the transport of nutrients across the cell membrane. This initiates the production of cellular energy, which leads to a cascade of beneficial effects, increasing cellular function and health.
Patient Benefits of Laser Therapy: Laser therapy is proven to stimulate tissue repair and growth. The laser accelerates the healing process and decreases inflammation, pain, and scar tissue formation. In the management of chronic pain, MLS laser therapy can provide dramatic results.
