Advanced Pain Relief with MLS Laser Therapy
Manage pain. Reduce inflammation. Speed recovery.
For many patients living with pain, a new laser therapy is providing relief and hope. MLS Laser Therapy has been called "revolutionary" and "amazing" by doctors and patients around the country for its rapid and effective treatment of pain. Now, this treatment is available in Richmond. The Foot & Ankle Center is the first medical practice in the area to provide MLS Laser Therapy.
What is Laser Therapy? How does it work?
Laser Therapy is the use of specific wavelengths of light to treat painful, sometimes debilitating, conditions. Light energy enters the damaged cells and stimulates inter-cellular activity. This reduces pain in the area and speeds recovery of the damaged cells. Once the cells recover, the healing process is complete.
What can I expect during a treatment?
MLS Laser Therapy is a painless treatment that lasts an average of 8 minutes. You may experience a comfortable sensation at the point of application.
What can I expect after the treatment?
Most people experience positive results in 1 to 3 treatments, with the average course of treatment being 6 to 10 sessions. Swelling is greatly reduced and there is a rapid relief of pain. Acute conditions usually subside quickly, typically within one series of treatments, while chronic conditions can be controlled with regular treatments.
The effects of MLS Laser Therapy are cumulative; therefore, expect to see improvement as you proceed through your treatment plan. It is critical that once you start, you complete the course of treatments recommended by your doctor or symptoms are likely to reoccur.
