MLS® Laser Therapy is an exciting new laser therapy cleared by the FDA as a treatment for a wide range of injuries and conditions that cause pain.
The doctors at Anderson Podiatry Center are excited to add this state-of-the-art treatment option to our available therapies.
The many benefits of MLS Laser Therapy include:
Anti-inflammatory: MLS Laser Therapy has an anti-edema effect in swelling caused by bruising or inflammation.
Analgesic: MLS Laser Therapy has a beneficial effect on nerve cells that decreases nerve sensitivity, edema, and pain.
Accelerated Tissue Repair and Cell Growth: The light from MLS lasers penetrates deeply into tissue and accelerates cellular reproduction and growth; damaged cells are repaired faster.
Improved Vascular Activity: Laser light significantly increases the formation of new capillaries in damaged tissue, which speeds up the healing process, closes wounds quickly, and reduces scar tissue.
Trigger Points and Acupuncture Points: MLS Laser Therapy stimulates muscle trigger points and acupuncture points on a noninvasive basis to provide musculoskeletal pain relief.
Reduced Fibrous Tissue Formation: MLS Laser Therapy reduces the formation of scar tissue following tissue damage from cuts, scratches, burns, or surgery.
Improved Nerve Function: Slow recovery of nerve functions in damaged tissue can result in numbness and impaired limbs. Laser light speeds the process of nerve cell reconnection and optimizes muscle and nerve healing.
Immunoregulation: Laser light stimulates immunoglobulins and lymphocytes and enhances cell energy.
Faster Wound Healing: Laser light stimulates fibroblast development in damaged tissue. As a result, MLS Laser Therapy is effective post-surgically and in the treatment of open wounds and burns.
MLS Laser is used to treat:
- Neuropathy/nerve pain
- Injuries such as sprains
- Post-operative rehabilitation
