The first time you hear someone talk about the Multiwave Locked System (MLS) Therapy Laser, you might assume it’s a piece of futuristic technology you might find in sickbay on the Starship Enterprise.

But the fact is, the MLS Therapy Laser is a present-day technology. And it can be used to address a number of foot and ankle conditions.

How MLS Laser Therapy Works

One of the best things about laser therapy is that it can eliminate pain and reduce inflammation without drugs or surgery. It does this by using very specific wavelengths of light that penetrate deeply into damaged tissue. This process stimulates cellular regeneration, which leads to healing and the reduction or elimination of pain.

Foot and Ankle Conditions MLS Laser Therapy Can Treat

MLS Laser Therapy can help with many different issues in the feet and ankles, including:

  • Achilles tendon issues
  • Arthritis
  • Bursitis
  • Fractures
  • Gout
  • Hematomas
  • Neuromas
  • Occupational or sports-related injuries
  • Peripheral neuropathy
  • Plantar fasciitis
  • Post-surgical locations
  • Tendonitis

Benefits of MLS Laser Therapy

We have noted that MLS Laser Therapy is non-invasive and drug-free. In addition, there are no known side effects of the therapy. There are, however, plenty of known benefits. These include:

  • Rapid reduction in pain (and it is a pain-free process)
  • Significant reductions in inflammation
  • Improved blood circulation
  • Boosts the healing process

A typical course of treatment lasts around 12 visits, with each visit generally lasting about 15 minutes. All in all, that means significant relief in a short period of time with no pain, drugs, or surgery.
