MLS laser treatments use several wavelengths of targeted light energy (lasers) to encourage your body’s healing process at the cellular level. Stimulating damaged or diseased tissues with concentrated light increases circulation to the area, reduces inflammation, and helps you recover quicker.
MLS laser treatment doesn’t require any incisions or downtime like orthopedic surgery. Each treatment session is painless and lasts 5-10 minutes. As soon as you’re finished, you can return to work and other activities.
Dr. Miller uses MLS laser treatments to manage various musculoskeletal problems, including:
MLS laser therapy provides a safe and effective treatment for nerve pain caused by neuropathy (permanent nerve damage) and pinched nerves.
Before recommending MLS laser treatment, Dr. Miller reviews your medical records, asks about your symptoms, and completes a physical exam. You qualify for treatment if you have mild or moderate musculoskeletal pain that doesn’t improve with at-home measures like ice, rest, and activity changes.
You change into a gown and sit or lie on a comfortable treatment table. Dr. Miller carefully positions the MLS robotic laser, pointing at a specific area of your body, like your knee or back.
Once the laser is in position, Dr. Miller turns the machine on and leaves the room. The robotic system emits a series of multi-wave light beams that penetrate your skin and activate your cells. MLS laser treatments don’t produce any heat like traditional laser therapy. As a result, you don’t experience any discomfort or skin irritation.
The machine activates your body’s healing process at the cellular level. It increases blood flow to the treatment site, reduces inflammation, and kick-starts new, healthy cells and tissue.
The number of MLS laser treatments you need depends on several factors, including the cause of your pain, its severity, and its effects on your quality of life. Some people experience significant relief after just one or two treatments, but Dr. Miller recommends a series of 6-12 sessions two or three times a week.
You might benefit from maintenance treatments every few months if you have a chronic condition like arthritis to prevent flare-ups.
