MLS Laser Therapy Q & A

What is Multiwave Locked System Laser Therapy?

MLS Laser Therapy uses laser waves as a pain management tool to reduce pain and inflammation. The laser reaches into your tissues and nerves without causing any feelings of heat or pain. MLS Laser Therapy is also sometimes referred to as cold Laser Therapy because the laser’s light source does not cause any heat damage.

MLS Laser Therapy is commonly used for the treatment of:

  • Sciatica
  • Arthritis and other degenerative joint conditions
  • Tendinitis
  • Bursitis
  • Muscle strains, sprains, and tears
  • Slipped or bulging discs
  • Spinal compression
  • Injuries to soft tissue

This treatment is unique in that it features a patented combination of two different therapeutic wavelengths, one for anti-inflammatory and water retention treatment, and the other for pain relief. 

What are the benefits of MLS Laser Therapy?

MLS therapy helps relieve pain and inflammation deep below your skin without any incision or recovery time. It has no negative side effects and can help improve recovery time for injuries such as sprains and strains, helping decrease swelling in the targeted area.

How does MLS Laser Therapy work?

When Dr. Bender directs the two wavelengths of laser energy into the affected area of your body, lymphatic drainage is stimulated to reduce swelling while your body also produces endorphins, a natural painkiller. The laser stimulates your cells to increase the production of healing enzymes to promote faster healing as well and encourages the transport of nutrients into the damaged cells to allow them to repair.

What should I expect during MLS therapy?

MLS Laser Therapy with Dr. Bender is painless, with the procedure often taking less than 10  minutes. You may start feeling the results after one to three treatments, although Dr. Bender may recommend six to twelve sessions if your condition is severe. The treatment doesn’t correct the cause of your pain, so ongoing MLS Laser Therapy may be part of your pain management plan you develop with Dr. Bender for your acute or chronic condition.

MLS Laser Therapy can help relieve the pain and inflammation from several painful conditions, so if other pain treatments have been unsuccessful, you may want to consider MLS Laser Therapy as a painless, low-risk alternative.
