What is MLS Laser Therapy and how does it work?
The patented MLS or "Multi-Wave Locked System" delivers two specific, synchronized wavelengths of laser light. One laser emission acts on inflammation; the other has an analgesic, or pain-relieving effect. Photons of laser energy penetrate deeply into tissue and accelerate cellular reproduction and growth. As a result of exposure to the MLS Laser, the cells of tendons, ligaments and muscles repair themselves faster. As inflammation is reduced, pain subsides very quickly. In simple terms, MLS therapy is a medical procedure to treat pain and inflammation and works on your cells to kick-start the healing process It works equally well, whether the condition is acute or chronic.
What can I expect during a treatment?
MLS Laser Therapy is painless. Most patients report no sensation at all while receiving laser therapy. Treatments average 10 minutes. MLS Laser Therapy is fast-acting; many patients experience relief after the first treatment.
What is the cost of Treatment?
A customized treatment plan will be determined upon completion of a comprehensive evaluation and diagnosis. At this time the patient will be given full disclosure of all costs. An average treatment cost is between $50-$80 per session depending on the condition and number of areas treated.
Does insurance cover Laser Therapy?
MLS Laser Therapy is cleared for clinical use by the FDA, however insurance reimbursement is limited at best, therefore, we do not participate with any insurance plans at this time. You may submit your paid receipt to your insurance company for consideration. The good news is that MLS Laser Therapy is very affordable.
Is it safe?
Yes, MLS Laser Therapy is cleared by the FDA. Over a million patient treatments have been performed with no reported side effects.
Will I need to continue Treatments indefinitely?
No, our goal is to identify the source of your problem and correct it. We will use MLS Therapy to accelerate healing so that the condition resolves at a faster rate. Results have proven to be long-term, if not permanent, for the majority of conditions we treat.
How can MLS Laser Therapy help my chronic condition?
The effects of MLS Laser Therapy are cumulative; therefore, expect to see improvement as you proceed through your Treatment Plan. Healing will occur as you proceed through your care due to the effect of the light laser on the mitochondria, (factory), of your damaged tissue.
How many Laser Treatments does it typically take?
A treatment plan is based on your condition. Acute conditions can be treated in as few as 6 sessions. More chronic conditions require 10 to 15 sessions to achieve maximum results. We may also have nutritional recommendations as well as exercise recommendations.
How do cells benefit from MLS Laser Therapy?
A healthy cell functions much like a well run factory. When a cell is injured by trauma or inflammation, its mitochondrial “battery” overworks to exhaustion. This causes the cell to become dormant, essentially going into hibernation. Mitochondria in our cells respond to frequencies of light like plants react to ultraviolet from the sun. MLS Laser penetrates over 2 inches, stimulating the cell’s photoreceptors, restoring energy and function to speed up the healing process.
What are the results of laser therapy?
The cellular “factory” returns to work resulting in:
