Pain is an excellent warning sign that something is amiss in the body. In most cases, doctors and patients are able to quickly determine the cause of chronic pain and find a suitable solution. However, the source of acute or chronic pain can sometimes be unexplainable. Laser therapy in Sarasota, FL, may provide the relief you need to feel and function better.
Let’s look at how MLS laser therapy at SA Aesthetics works.
What Is MLS Laser Therapy?
MLS stands for multiwave locked system. This kind of laser, or focused light, therapy is approved by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) for a wide range of therapeutic uses.
Employing two different wavelengths of light in both pulse and continuous forms, MLS laser therapy has been shown to reduce pain and inflammation associated with a wide range of acute and chronic health conditions. Applied to qualified patients as an in-office service, laser therapy is both safe and painless. It requires no special preparation or downtime afterwards. Plus, it eliminates the risks and side effects of surgery, heavy pain medications, and other therapies patient typically experience when seeking relief from unexplained pain.
What Does Laser Therapy Do?
MLS laser therapy works on nerves, muscles, bones, ligaments, and tendons. Through physical examination and discussion of your symptoms and medical history, your physical medicine doctor in Sarasota, FL, will determine if the procedure is right for you and how many sessions you may need to achieve maximum therapeutic effect.
At each 15 to 30 minute in-office treatment, you’ll be positioned comfortably and receive just the right amount of laser light to treat your painful areas. You may feel a sensation of warmth but no discomfort of any kind, and afterwards, you may resume your usual daily routine without restrictions. Most people feel some immediate pain relief, with maximum effect achieved in three or more treatment sessions.
What Are The Therapeutic Effects of MLS Laser Therapy?
Multiwave locked system laser therapy achieves a wide range of outcomes, including:
- Pain relief
- Quicker wound healing
- Increased circulation of blood, healing proteins, and lymph
- Scar reduction
- Reduction of inflammation
- Improved range of motion
Physical medicine physicians and other health care providers usually recommend laser therapy as the primary treatment or as an adjunct service (along with physical therapy and massage, as examples). It helps people dealing with:
- Lower back pain
- Soft tissue injuries, such as strains, sprains, ulcers, and bruises
- Degenerative disc disease in the cervical, thoracic, and lumbar spine
- Swelling, wound healing, and scar reduction after surgery
