MLS Laser Therapy

Our clinic is proud to be on the medical technological forefront by offering MLS Laser Therapy.  We have invested in the very best technology as a key component of our continuing quest to offer you the finest in health care.

Laser therapy has been cleared by the FDA and proven successful as evidenced by extensive and credible studies conducted in our country’s finest institutions, including Harvard University.

MLS Laser Therapy uses specific wavelengths of light that have a strong anti-inflammatory, anti-edema effect on tissues that are exposed to the laser. Painful conditions accompanied by swelling or inflammation benefit from this technology.

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, laser energy kick-starts the healing process, thereby speeding recovery.

There are no known side-effects!  Laser therapy is cleared by the FDA and is safe and effective.

Benefits include:

1.)  Anti-Inflammation

MLS Laser therapy has an anti-swelling effect as it causes vasodilatation and activates lymphatic drainage, which decrease inflammation.

2.)  Anti-Pain (Analgesic)

MLS Laser therapy helps nerve cells heal, which blocks the pain being transmitted by these cells and decreases nerve sensitivity. Decreased inflammation also means less pain. Lastly, laser therapy increases production of pain killing chemicals such as endorphins and encephalin.

3.)  Accelerated Tissue Repair and Cell Growth

It is well known that light has a healing effect on the body. Photons of light from lasers penetrate deeply into tissue providing energy to accelerate cellular reproduction and healing of cells, tendons, ligaments, muscles and other tissues.

4.) Improved Vascular Activity

Laser light will significantly increase the formation of new capillaries and speeds up the healing process.

5.)  Increases Metabolic Activity:

MLS Laser therapy creates higher outputs of ATP production, specific enzymes, greater oxygen and food particle loads for blood cells.

6.) Trigger Points and Acupuncture Points

MLS Laser therapy stimulates muscle trigger points and acupuncture points on a non-invasive basis providing pain relief.

7.) Reduced Fibrous Tissue

MLS Laser therapy reduces the formation of scar tissue following tissue damage from cuts, scratches, burns or surgery.

8.) Improved Nerve Function

Slow recovery of nerve functions in damaged tissue can result in numbness and impaired limbs. Laser light will speed up the process of nerve cell reconnection and increase the nerve supply to optimize muscle recovery.

9.)  Immunoregulation

Laser light has a direct effect on immunity by stimulation of immunoglobines and lymphocytes. MLS Laser therapy is absorbed by chromophores enzymes that react to laser light. The enzyme flavomono-nucleotide is then activated and starts the production of ATP.

10.) Faster Wound Healing

Laser light stimulates fibroblast development and collagen production, which is important in healing any kind of damaged tissue.
