When a physical condition or injury affects your mobility or quality of life, you have one goal: to return as quickly as possible to everyday activities. Foot & Ankle LA is proud to be on the medical technology forefront by offering MLS Laser Therapy. The doctors and staff have invested in the very best technology as a key component of our continuing quest to offer you the finest in health care.
MLS (Multiwave Locked System) Laser Therapy is the use of two specific wavelengths of light to treat painful and debilitating conditions. These wavelengths work together to enhance each other, resulting in increased reduction of inflammation and pain.
MLS Laser Therapy has been approved by the FDA and proven successful as evidenced by extensive and credible studies conducted in our country’s finest institutions, including Harvard. The laser causes no heat or light damage to the patient, and can be set for each particular patient’s anatomy and diagnosis.
Laser therapy uses light to favor and accelerate the body’s natural healing processes. The laser beam is moved over the skin so that the light energy (photons) penetrates the tissue where it interacts with various molecules (chromophores) that cause different biological effects. It produces a photochemical, photothermal and photomechanical effect.
There are many types of lasers. Each laser has different characteristics which produce a different effect. These characteristics include:
MLS Laser Therapy is quickly becoming the standard of care in alleviating both acute and chronic pain. This patented, FDA-cleared technology has an 85% – 90% efficacy rate in relieving pain and inflammation, eliminates risk from surgery and prescription pain killers, has no known negative side effects, and restores patients’ lives.
Treatment sessions typically take around 15 to 20 minutes to complete. During the treatment, the MLS laser system will deliver a steady beam of laser energy that will be passed over the skin along the treatment area. The laser energy penetrates the tissue and stimulates circulation and the tissue healing process. The patient may experience a soothing, warm sensation at the point of application; this identifies the beginning of an 18-24 hour process of modulated cellular activity, leading to decreased inflammation and pain. Some patients say they feel a comfortable warm sensation, while others say they feel nothing at all. Most importantly, there is no pain or uncomfortable feeling experienced during or after the treatment.
The number of treatments needed will vary per patient/issue. Some patients may be seeking care for an injury to the foot, while others may be suffering from long-standing chronic foot pain. The average patient will need around six to ten treatments.
