The Many Benefits of MLS Laser Therapy

The Many Benefits of MLS Laser Therapy

“Laser therapy” may seem like something straight out of a sci-fi movie. However, this innovative pain management solution has been in use worldwide for more than 40 years. But, that doesn’t mean the technology is all the same.

At Precision Footcare in Midtown East, New York City, John Jurcisin, DPM, relies on MLS®  Laser Therapy. Experts developed MLS (Multiwave Locked System) Laser Therapy to simultaneously treat pain, inflammation, and edema with two specific wavelengths of energy. This advanced technology makes it highly effective for treating a variety of foot and ankle conditions, such as:

MLS Laser Therapy can also help with both acute and chronic conditions, but that’s not all. Here are additional benefits you can expect with MLS Laser Therapy.

Pain relief

Unlike other laser treatments, MLS Laser Therapy delivers two wavelengths in a synchronized manner. The continuous laser energy stimulates blood flow and the lymphatic system to help reduce inflammation and swelling. At the same time, pulsed laser energy provides an analgesic effect in the treatment area by interrupting pain signals being sent to the brain.

Together, these wavelengths give MLS Laser Therapy an 85-90% efficacy rate when treating pain and inflammation. 

Improved nerve function

When you have damaged tissue, it can interfere with nerve function. However, treating the area with laser light can improve nerve cell connections, increase their function, and slow further nerve degeneration.

Faster healing

The MLS Laser Therapy system may not come in contact with your skin, but the powerful wavelengths of energy it delivers can still penetrate 4-5 centimeters below its surface. 

These photons of light help accelerate cellular growth and reproduction deep inside your tissue. That’s because the laser light increases the amount of energy the cells have access to, enabling them to absorb nutrients faster and eliminate waste products.

The wavelengths delivered through MLS Laser Therapy also increase:

All of these responses support and accelerate the healing process.

Reduced scarring

Plus, MLS Laser Therapy can also help reduce scar tissue formation. So, incorporating it into your treatment plan may help you during recovery from surgery, cuts, and other wounds.

No risks or side effects

The above benefits alone are causing MLS Laser Therapy to quickly become a standard of care. However, it also comes without any risks or side effects. In fact, this innovative treatment can help restore your quality of life without the need for risky medications or surgery.

In most cases, patients usually need 6-10 treatments total. The treatments are usually given 2-3 times a week over a 2-3 week period. However, most people can see results after a single session. But the best part? Laser treatment is painless and so relaxing that some people even fall asleep during treatment.
