MLS Laser Therapy
MLS stands for Multi-Wave Locked System. The MLS Laser is a Class IV Laser and uses multiple synchronized diodes. It features 2 wavelengths; 808 nanometers and 905 nanometers. The 808nm wavelength is for inflammation and the 905nm wavelength is for analgesic and is fast acting. Together, they are very effective. Laser Therapy was cleared by the FDA in 2002 and is currently used by a variety of medical specialties, as well as professional sports teams, including the Dallas Cowboys and Cleveland Cavaliers. The Laser can penetrate 3-4 cm deep and generates no heat. There are no harmful effects.
MLS Laser Therapy is a painless treatment that lasts an average of 10 minutes. You may experience a comfortable sensation at the point of application.
Most people experience positive results in 1 to 3 treatments, with the average course of treatment being 7 to 10 sessions. Swelling is greatly reduced and there is rapid relief of pain. Acute conditions usually subside quickly, typically within one phase of treatments, while chronic conditions can be controlled with regular treatments.
The effects of MLS Laser Therapy are cumulative; therefore, expect to see improvement as you proceed through your treatment plan. It is critical that once you start, you complete the course of treatments recommended by your doctor or symptoms are likely to reoccur.
