Beating Pain with MLS Laser Therapy

by | May 24, 2016 | Heel and Arch Pain, Sports Injuries

There are many areas in life where technological advances have made tremendous differences, including the medical field. The human body isn’t all that different from a hundred years ago, but now we have advanced ways to see what is happening in the body, treat various conditions, and even communicate to share medical information.

One of the recent advances that is quite beneficial is the use of laser therapy. We are able to clear up stubborn cases of fungal nails with concentrated beams of light, but multi-wave lock system (MLS) lasers can also promote healing of other foot conditions and provide pain relief.

During MLS laser therapy, light energy deeply penetrates damaged tissue and stimulates natural healing activity by accelerating cell reproduction and growth. This therapy is particularly effective for soft tissues—ligaments, tendons, and muscles—many of which are found in the feet and are often affected by injury. The specific light wavelengths used in this process trigger anti-inflammatory responses, which help reduce swelling and pain in the affected area.

When using this laser treatment for pain, we precisely calibrate the laser to deliver energy in predetermined durations, pulses, wavelengths, and therapeutic dosages. The MLS laser works to quickly restore cells to their optimal condition by stimulating faster healing.

Besides improving circulation and reducing pain, the news gets even better when you find out that MLS laser treatment is painless and FDA-approved. Treatment time is minimal, with the average session needing less than ten minutes. Medications and other treatments for foot and ankle conditions may produce undesirable side effects, but this is not the case for laser treatment.

If you have a condition that causes pain and is detrimental to the health of your feet, schedule an appointment online for any of our Kansas offices in Wichita, Emporia, or Newton, KS. You may find that our MLS laser therapy will provide the relief you need.
