What is MLS Laser Therapy?
Laser therapy is a non-invasive, painless treatment that uses the energy in two specific wavelengths of light to treat painful and debilitating conditions. The energy from this light stimulates activity in damaged cells and speeds the process in which they can recover.
MLS Laser Therapy treatments have been clinically shown to significantly reduce pain, inflammation, and swelling while it improves local blood circulation and helps to repair injury and increase mobility.
Which Conditions Can Be Treated with MLS Laser Therapy?
The benefits of laser therapy can be applied to a wide range of injuries and conditions, including:
- Arthritis & Bursitis
- Heel Pain
- Repetitive Motion Injuries
- Sprains & Strains
- Post-Surgical Swelling
- Tendon & Ligament Injuries
- Peripheral Neuropathy
How Does MLS Laser Therapy Reduce My Inflammation and Swelling?
The special wavelengths of light in laser therapy help to reduce any edema (excess fluid) in your body’s cavities or tissues. It does this by triggering vasodilation, that is, by getting the blood vessels in the injured area to dilate. In addition, the laser activates your lymphatic drainage system (the part of your body that removes excess fluid and waste from the areas between your cells). The result is that any excess fluid leaves the injured area and any swelling caused by bruising or inflammation quickly reduces.
How Does MLS Laser Therapy Reduce My Pain?
In addition to the pain reduction that comes simply from a reduction in inflammation and swelling, laser therapy can also help manage your pain due to its effect on nerve cells. MLS Laser Therapy can decrease nerve sensitivity by blocking the pain that your nerve cells transmit to your brain. It also increases your body’s production of pain-killing chemicals such as endorphins and encephalin.
How Does MLS Laser Therapy Speed Up My Recovery Time?
When the light photons penetrate your injured tissue, they accelerate the rate at which your cells reproduce and grow. This happens, because the laser light increases the energy available to the injured area, which translates to more nutrients and quicker waste disposal for your cells. In addition, the laser light will significantly improve your vascular (blood flow) activity by helping new capillaries to form in the damaged tissue. All of this translates to faster tissue repair and shorter overall healing times.
