What you need to know about MLS Laser Therapy

At My Laser Pain Relief Centre in Collingwood, Ontario, we utilize MLS laser therapy as an FDA-cleared therapy for treating a variety of conditions. Laser pain therapy is light therapy that uses specific multi-wavelengths. The photons penetrate deep into muscles, tendons, and ligaments to accelerate cellular recovery and reproduction. This results in a faster repair process for such situations as sports injuries, carpal tunnel syndrome, golfer’s elbow, tennis elbow, whiplash, or post-surgical pain & swelling.

What is MLS Laser Therapy?

Laser pain therapy isn’t just for recovering from an injury. It is also beneficial for those suffering from chronic pain when the condition is worsened by inflammation and poor blood circulation. The strong anti-inflammatory effect of MLS laser therapy, as well as its anti-edema effect on tissues, often results in immediate pain reduction. We can then control your chronic pain condition with regular treatments.

MLS stands for Multiwave Locked System. The reason it is called multiwave is because it uses both 808nm and 905nm therapeutic wavelengths. The 808nm wavelength is what delivers the anti-edemic and anti-inflammatory benefits, and the 905nm provides an analgesic benefit. By delivering these two together, the effects are greater than if they were delivered separately. In addition, there is minimal risk of thermal damage because of the accurate dose delivery.

MLS laser pain therapy has photochemical, photothermal, and photomechanical effects, as well as secondary biological effects, including an effect on cells and tissue, and systemic effects. There are no negative side effects, making MLS laser pain therapy a better solution than undergoing the risks of surgery or taking prescription pain killers.
