We have invested in the very best technology as a key component of our continuing quest to offer you the finest in health care.
Laser therapy has been cleared by the FDA and proven successful as evidenced by extensive and credible studies conducted in our country's finest institutions including Harvard University.
MLS Laser Therapy uses specific wavelengths of light that have a strong anti-inflammatory, anti-edema effect on tissues that are exposed to the laser. Painful conditions accompanied by swelling or inflammation benefit from this technology.
Photons of laser energy penetrate deeply into tissue and accelerate cellular reproduction and growth. As a result of exposure to the MLS Laser, the cells of tendons, ligaments and muscles repair themselves faster. As inflammation is reduced, pain subsides very quickly. In simple terms, laser energy kick-starts the healing process, thereby speeding recovery.
Unlike some pharmacological solutions, there are no known negative side effects. Laser therapy is cleared by the FDA and is safe and effective.
MLS Laser Therapy is painless. Most patients report no sensation at all while receiving laser therapy. Treatments average 8 minutes. MLS Laser Therapy is fast-acting; many patients in high levels of acute pain experience relief after the first or second treatment.
Over 90% of patients experience positive results after the 3rd treatment, with the average course of treatment being 7 to 10 sessions. In many cases, by the 3rd or 4th treatment, swelling is greatly reduced and there is a rapid relief of pain. The effects of MLS Laser Therapy are cumulative; therefore, expect to see improvement as you proceed through your Treatment Plan. Chronic conditions can be controlled with regular treatments. Acute conditions usually subside quickly, typically within one phase of treatments.
It is critical that once you start, you complete the course of treatments recommended by your doctor or symptoms are likely to reoccur.
