Read on for more information about laser therapy and how it could help you.
What is MLS laser therapy?
Laser therapy safely and painlessly uses light to help to reduce pain, inflammation and swelling and to promote healing.
How does MLS laser therapy work?
Laser therapy involves directing light energy into inflamed or damaged tissue to accelerate the body’s natural healing process. The laser is placed in direct contact with the skin which enables specific wavelengths of light to penetrate the tissue and interact with molecules within the cells to cause several biochemical effects (see the video below for further information on this).
My pain has been there for a long time, can MLS® laser help me?
Yes, absolutely. Laser therapy is appropriate for both chronic (long term) and acute (new pain/injury) conditions.
Does it hurt?
No, laser therapy with the MLS® Laser is completely pain free. The system is totally safe to use thanks to its unique safety system. Some patients have reported that that feeling of having the head of the laser machine moved over the area of pain is soothing and similar to a relaxing massage!
Is there anyone who can’t have MLS laser therapy?
Laser therapy can be carried out on most people including children.
However, laser may be contraindicated in those who:
– Have cancer
– Are under the age of 16 and the area to be treated is over a growth plate (assessment can be given).
– Are pregnant
So what can MLS laser therapy be used to treat?
MLS laser therapy can be used to treat many conditions including:
Muscle spasm and pain, plantarfasciitis, arthritis, strains/sprains, back pain, hip pain, knee pain, sciatica, bursitis, tendonitis, Haematoma (bruising) and swelling, neuropathy as well as wounds and ulcers.
How many sessions will I need?
Generally we recommend 3-6 sessions. Often acute conditions respond more quickly than chronic problems.
