Cold Laser Therapy
WHAT IS LASER THERAPY? Laser Therapy is the use of specific wavelengths of light to treat painful and debilitating conditions.
HOW DOES IT WORK? 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 7 to 10 sessions. Swelling is greatly reduced and there is a rapid relief of pain. Acute conditions usually subside quickly, typically within one phase 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.
MLS LASER THERAPY IS USED FOR: Temporary relief of pain, inflammation and edema.
BENEFITS OF MLS LASER THERAPY:
- Rapid relief of pain without the use of addictive prescription painkillers
- Strong anti-inflammatory effect
- Non-surgical treatment
- No negative side effects
- Timely healing of sprains & strains
- Rapid recovery of the structural integrity of injured region
- Rapid resolution of swollen areas Immediate improvement of local blood circulation
- Rapid repair of superficial injuries, such as wounds and ulcers
MLS Laser therapy has been cleared by the FDA and proven successful as evidenced by extensive studies.
“Continuous emission is absorbed by the cytochrome oxidase which activation promotes the production of ATP, leading to the anti-inflammatory and anti-oedematous effects by stimulating microcirculation and influencing on the synthesis and degradation of inflammatory mediators . Pulsed emission reduces pain through an effect on the superficial nociceptors and afferent nervous fibres, influencing on the nerve conduction . The result of this emission is an increase of the nociceptive threshold and in a consequence—a reduction of pain sensation. Synchronization of both radiation components intensifies the analgesic, anti-inflammatory and anti-oedematous effect, increasing the intensity of the therapeutic effect on both pain and inflammation [19, 21]. Therefore, it is possible that MLS radiation can interact with deep located tissue and influence on the permeability of the cellular membrane, vessel walls (anti-inflammatory and anti-edematous effect) and peripheral nervous system (analgesic effect). “(http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC4348551)
