MLS Laser Therapy Q & A

What is MultiWave Locked System (MLS®)  laser therapy?

MLS laser therapy is a state-of-the-art system that uses dual wavelengths of concentrated light energy to stimulate your body’s own recovery process. This FDA-cleared system is the most advanced type of laser therapy in the medical field today. 

 

MLS laser therapy is a completely non-invasive and painless treatment for a broad variety of injuries and degenerative conditions. Up to 90% of patients experience significant pain relief, which means that MLS laser therapy can help you get back to living your life faster. 

How does MLS laser therapy work?

As a type of cold laser therapy, MLS laser therapy works effectively without heating your body tissues. The laser energy passes harmlessly through your skin to reach into the sore, painful, and damaged tissue requiring repair.

The dual light wavelengths work in many ways, including: 

  • Minimizes inflammation and swelling (the main causes of pain)
  • Speeds cellular renewal rate
  • Improves blood circulation
  • Stimulates new blood vessel growth
  • Improves nerve function
  • Reduces scar tissue formation after an injury

Ultimately, these effects combine to help you feel better faster because you’re healing more rapidly than your body would otherwise. 

Which foot and ankle conditions does MLS laser therapy treat?

MLS laser therapy has a wide range of applications in the feet and ankles, including:

  • Sports injuries, like sprains, strains, Achilles tendon injuries
  • Arthritis
  • Plantar fasciitis
  • Peripheral neuropathy
  • Neuromas
  • Wounds

Because MLS laser therapy is so effective in stimulating healing and easing pain, it also has other uses in the feet and ankles. This type of therapy can help with most types of foot and ankle pain, either as a stand-alone treatment or as part of a comprehensive recovery program.

How many MLS laser therapy sessions will I need?

Most people need a series of around 6-12 total treatments to get optimal results. But you may experience pain relief after your very first session, with cumulative benefits as you progress through your sessions. Most people have treatments 2-3 times weekly for 2-3 weeks. 

Dr. Bhuta can evaluate your condition and customize an MLS laser therapy plan that meets your needs. He may also recommend other treatments, for example, strength and flexibility-building exercises, to help you recover and return to the activities that matter most to you.
