MLS Robotic Laser Therapy

Laser Therapy is the use of specific wavelengths of light to treat painful and debilitating conditions. Light energy enters the damaged cells and stimulates inter-cellular activity, in turn reducing localized pain and expediting recovery of the damaged cells. Once the cells recover, the healing process is complete. Treatment is painless and lasts an average of 10 minutes. The MLS Robotic Laser does not generate heat and is safe to use over implanted metal devices. It is the only Class 4 laser that has been cleared for use over surgical hardware.


What can I expect after treatment?

Many people experience positive results within a few treatments! Acute conditions usually subside quickly, typically with one phase of 4-6 treatments. Most chronic conditions require 10-15 treatments. If complete relief is not attained, resistant cases of chronic conditions can be controlled with regular treatment.


The effects of MLS Robotic Laser Therapy are cumulative. Therefore, expect to see improvement as you proceed through your treatment plan. It is critical that you complete your doctor's recommended course of treatment or symptoms are likely to recur.
