What is MLS Laser Therapy?
MLS Laser Therapy is light therapy that uses specific multi-wavelengths. Light therapy is not a new concept, but the technology involved has definitely undergone a drastic transformation.
At My Laser Pain Relief Centre in Collingwood, Ontario, we have invested in the innovative system of MLS Laser Therapy, which has benefits that low level laser therapy (LLLT) and high power (HP) class IV lasers cannot match. LLLT is a relatively safe light therapy, but it requires far more treatment sessions than MLS laser therapy, and each one is far longer than the average 8 minutes that our sessions run. HP was developed with the expectation that the problems with LLLT would be overcome, but since the lasers are not controlled, tissue damage may result.
What does MLS mean?
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. This makes MLS laser therapy far superior to early-generation light therapy technologies.
MLS laser pain therapy is FDA-cleared for the treatment of various conditions, including arthritis, tennis elbow, tendonitis, sports injuries, shoulder pain, plantar fasciitis, neck pain, knee pain, hip pain, golfer’s elbow, carpal tunnel syndrome, sciatica, and back pain. It can also be used for post-surgical pain and swelling so that you can more readily recover. In this regard, it is a good choice for pain management after surgery instead of relying on medication.
What you need to know about MLS Laser Therapy
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 painkillers.
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.
