How Does MLS Laser Therapy Work?
Multiwave Locked System (MLS) Therapy Laser is an innovative system that exceeds traditional low power lasers while protecting against the dangers of early generation high power Class IV technology. MLS Laser Therapy delivers controlled laser energy to produce results which are both consistent and repeatable. MLS Laser Therapy uses specific wavelengths of light that have a strong anti-inflammatory, anti-edema effects on tissues that are exposed to the laser. 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, therefore, speeding the healing process.
Will MLS Laser Therapy Work for Your Pet?
MLS Laser therapy is a quick procedure that can produce positive results in as little as one to three treatments. Acute conditions can subside very quickly in just one treatment, while more chronic conditions may be managed with weekly treatments, as the effects are cumulative. The number and frequency of treatments depend on the type and severity of the condition being treated. During treatment, we move the laser over the target area using a hand-held device. Your pet is not restrained or sedated and they will not feel any pain. What the pet will experience is a soothing sensation at the point of application. A few of the desired effects, depending on the condition being treated, are reducing inflammation and pain, accelerating tissue repair and healing and even stimulating trigger and acupuncture points.
MLS Laser Therapy is a non-invasive, drug-free alternative that has been cleared by the FDA for use in both the veterinary and medical fields. It is proven safe and effective for treating a wide range of conditions, including:
- Back pain/disc disease
- Dermatologic disorders
- Post-surgical healing
- Ear infections
- Sprains and strains
- …And more!
