MLS Laser Therapy

What do you do when foot or ankle pain just won’t go away? When nothing seems to work? Or when recovery just isn’t progressing fast enough to meet the demands of your work, family, and social calendars?

A few years ago, your options were pretty unappealing: probably either to take painkillers every day and hope things eventually got better, or go get foot surgery.

But now there’s a better way. MLS laser therapy has totally changed our approach to helping our patients deal with stubborn or severe injuries and pain, and getting them faster and safer results without drugs, side effects, shots, or surgery.

Do you find yourself in any of these situations?

  • You have chronic foot or ankle pain that won’t go away despite rest and physical therapy
  • You had a recent injury, surgery, or wound and you need it to heal as quickly as possible
  • You have tingling feet or other signs of peripheral nerve pain or damage

If so, there is a great chance that MLS laser therapy can help you.


What Is MLS Laser Therapy?

MLS, short for multiwave locked system, is a revolutionary treatment that uses a pair of synchronized lasers at two different wavelengths to trigger rapid pain relief, inflammation reduction, and tissue regeneration in an injured area.

The light energy from the laser naturally stimulates several cellular responses in your tissue. Lymphatic drainage is improved to reduce swelling. New capillaries are formed and damaged tissues get more oxygen and nutrients. Pain signals get blocked. Cellular metabolism increases. We could go on, but you get the idea.

The end result is that, for more than 90 percent of our patients, MLS laser treatments are able to substantially alleviate the majority of their symptoms, much faster than conventional treatments alone. And because the positive healing effects are so broad, the system can be applied in a wide variety of scenarios, including:

Often, MLS laser therapy sessions are able to solve your problem without injections, casts, surgery, or other much more invasive or time-consuming procedures.

What Are the Treatments Like?

The actual treatment process could not be simpler or more convenient.

We’ll typically schedule a series of either 6 or 12 treatment sessions, 2 to 3 times per week, based on the nature of your condition and your symptoms.

Each session is very brief, lasting only about 15 minutes on average. There’s very little prep and no downtime whatsoever. If you live close enough to our office, you might even be able to fit in a session on a lunch break and still grab a bite before clocking back in!

The treatments are completely painless, with no medications, anesthesia, or injections required. The laser cannot burn you or damage healthy tissue. It is virtually risk-free, with no known side effects.

What Kind of Results Can I Expect?

It’s important to understand that, while most people achieve amazing results with this system, it will not happen instantly. It’s not Star Trek, as we sometimes say.

Some people start to notice results right away after the first session, although for most people it might take 2-3 treatments on average before you start to notice a big difference.

What must be understood, though, is that results are cumulative. Unlike a steroid injection, which is a one-time application that masks your symptoms for a few months, MLS laser therapy sessions are boosting your tissue healing capacity. That means each new session tends to produce better results than the one before, until the pain is entirely or almost entirely gone.

In addition to the MLS laser therapy sessions, we will also usually recommend other, more traditional therapies (taping, new shoes, orthotics, etc.) as well. MLS laser therapy is often just one part of an overall treatment plan—but it can help you achieve results far better and faster than using other conservative treatments alone.

Although results vary from person to person and no treatment can ever be 100% guaranteed, more than 90 percent of our patients who undergo MLS laser therapy experience significant improvement in their symptoms by the end of the treatment course.
