What is MLS laser therapy?
The MLS laser is an innovative laser treatment that uses therapeutic wavelengths to penetrate the tissue and effectively repair damage. The laser light simultaneously provides analgesic and anti-inflammatory effects to immediately alleviate your pain and swelling during your treatment.
Using MLS laser therapy, you can expect to recover from medical conditions and injuries in a faster period of time than traditional surgery. The laser stimulates cellular activity and as a result, you experience increased blood circulation that promotes healing.
Which conditions can MLS laser therapy treat?
Dr. Small can use the MLS laser treatment for a number of foot and ankle related conditions, such as:
- Open wounds
- Sports injuries
- Plantar fasciitis
- Diabetic neuropathy
- Ligament and tendon injuries
- Muscle sprains and strains
To determine if you’re a candidate for MLS laser treatment, Dr. Small performs a thorough evaluation of the affected area and discusses your symptoms. He also reviews your medical history to ensure laser therapy is a safe option for your treatment plan.
