MLS Laser Q & A
What is the MLS Laser?
The Multiwave Locked System (MLS) Therapy Laser or MLS Laser is an FDA-cleared class IV laser tool that uses dual wavelengths of energy to ease pain and reduce swelling and inflammation.
More specifically, the MLS Laser simultaneously delivers two therapeutic wavelengths of energy to accelerate healing and help you get back to your active lifestyle. The MLS Laser includes:
The lower power wavelength — 808 nanometers (nm) — reduces inflammation and swelling.
The high power wavelength — 905 nm — provides pain relief.
The MLS Laser delivers the energy in both continuous and pulsed emissions, maximizing the healing benefits.
How does the MLS Laser work?
The MLS Laser delivers the light energy directly to your damaged cells without heating or damaging any other tissue. The light energy stimulates activity within the cell, activating and accelerating your body’s natural healing process.
The benefits of MLS Laser Therapy at the Institute of Spinal Disorders include:
- Rapid pain relief
- Strong anti-inflammatory effect
- Timely healing of sprains and strains
- Rapid resolution of swelling
- Fast recovery of structural integrity
- Immediate improvement in local blood circulation
The laser therapy speeds up the recovery of your damaged cells. Once these cells recover, the healing process is complete.
What can the MLS Laser treat?
Dr. Myles uses the MLS Laser to treat many conditions. He may recommend laser therapy to treat your:
- Tendon or ligament injury
- Sore muscles
- Muscle strain or tear
- Rib pain
- Degenerative joint condition
- Specific neurological conditions
- Musculoskeletal disorder
- Disc disease
He also uses the MLS Laser to repair superficial injuries like wounds and ulcers and for pre- and post-surgical treatment.
What can I expect during MLS Laser Therapy?
MLS Laser Therapy is painless, and treatment takes about eight minutes. However, you may feel an uncomfortable sensation at the start of your laser therapy.
Most patients experience positive results after 1-3 sessions. However, Dr. Myles recommends a course of 7-10 treatments to gain the most healing benefits.
Acute conditions may improve after one course of treatment. If you have a chronic condition, Dr. Myles may recommend regular treatments to manage pain and inflammation.
The effects of MLS Laser Therapy are cumulative. Dr. Myles emphasizes that once you start therapy, you must complete your course of treatment, or your symptoms may recur.
The MLS Laser may be the treatment that helps you finally get long-term relief from your pain so you can reduce your reliance on pain medication.
