Here’s a fun, animated video from MLS Laser Technologies answering a common question patients have about this remarkable pain treatment. Enjoy!
For 85 to 90 percent of all patients with musculoskeletal pain, inflammation or arthritis, MLS Laser Therapy provides fast, efficient pain relief. In fact, most patients with pain, inflammation or arthritis report significant pain relief from MLS laser therapy treatments. At The Foot & Ankle Center, we use this technology to treat a variety of painful conditions, such as achilles tendonitis and plantar fasciitis. Many patients who thought they would have to have surgery to treat their pain have even been able to delay or cancel their surgery because the laser therapy alleviated their condition and reduced or eliminated their pain. For those patients who do need surgery, we may use MLS laser treatment following the procedure because of its ability to relieve post-operative pain and inflammation, allowing patients to heal and return to normal activity much faster.

While the MLS Therapy Laser is FDA-cleared, treatments aren't covered by insurance yet.

This animated video from MLS Laser Technologies answers another question patients ask about this advanced treatment for pain.
Many people ask if there is any pain associated with MLS Laser Therapy treatments. There are many kinds of laser technology, each with specific characteristics. Through years of research and development, the MLS Laser was designed to treat conditions without an excessive thermal effect often felt as heat. Most people report that they do not feel anything during MLS Laser Therapy treatments. Occasionally, you may feel a slight warming sensation at the treatment site, which is normal, and an indication that the inflammation is being relieved and your body is responding properly. MLS Laser Therapy stimulates and jumpstarts your body's natural healing process, so you heal faster with less pain and inflammation. The MLS therapy laser is specially designed to treat you without any discomfort or negative side effects, so you can relax while you're being treated with this FDA-cleared and patented technology.

This animated video from MLS Laser Technologies addresses a common question patients ask about this effective treatment for pain.
For most patients, the positive effect of MLS Laser Therapy is long-lasting. While each person and each condition varies, we’ve found that 85 to 90 percent of all patients receive tremendous relief from their pain and inflammation when they go through a series of MLS Laser Therapy treatments. While most patients may not need additional treatments in the future, some conditions like arthritis are degenerative. The great thing about the MLS laser therapy for arthritic patients is that once you feel better, you can be more active and this increased activity may help to minimize the long-term effects of arthritis. Even so, you may need an occasional single MLS treatment every four to six weeks over the course of the year, just to hold the inflammation at bay and keep arthritic pain in check. One of our podiatrists will be happy to discuss what treatment schedule will be best for you, and if MLS laser therapy would benefit you. Request a consultation today:
