Frequently Asked Questions about Laser Therapy

What is MLS Laser Therapy and how does it work?

 The patented MLS or "Multi-Wave Locked System"  delivers two specific, synchronized wave lengths of laser light.  One Las emission acts on inflammation; the other has an analgesic, or pain-reliveing effect.   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, ligament and muscles repair themselves faster.  As inflammation is reduced pain subsides very quickly.  In simple terms, MLS therapy is a medical procedure to treat pain and inflammation and works on your cells to kick-start the healing process.  It works equally well, whether the condition is acute or chronic?

Is it safe? 

Laser Therapy is cleared by the FDA.  Over a million patient treatments have been performed with no reported side effects.  Laser Therapy can be found in every medical discipline.  It is frequently used to treat professional athletes in the NFL, NBA and MLB;

How can MLS Laser Therapy help my chronic condition?  The effects of MLS Laser Therapy are cumulative; therefore, expect to see improvement as you proceed through your Treatment Plan.  Healing will occur as you proceed through your care due to the effect of the light laser on the mitochondria, (factory) of your damaged tissue.
What can I expect during a treatment?   MLS Laser Therapy is painless.  Most patients report no sensation at all while receiving laser therapy.  Treatments average 10 minutes.  MLS Laser Therapy is fast-acting; many patients experience relief after the first treatment.
How many Laser Treatment does it typically take?  A treatment plan is based on your condition.  Injuries such as tennis elbow or knee sprain can be treated in a few as  6 sessions.  More chronic conditions require 10 to 15 sessions to achieve maximum results. We may also have nutritional recommendations as well as exercise recommendations.

Does insurance cover Laser Therapy? MLS Laser Therapy is cleared for clinical use by the FDA, however insurance reimbursement is limited at best. therefore, we do not participate with any insurance plans at this time.  You may submit your paid receipt to your insurance company for consideration.  The good news is that MLS Laser Therapy is very affordable.

What is the cost of treatment?  A customized treatment plan will be determined upon completion of a comprehensive evaluation and diagnosis.  At this time the patient will be given full disclosure of all cost.  An average treatment cost is between $50-$80 per session depending on the condition and number of areas treated.
Will I need to continue treatments indefinitely?  NO, our goal is to identify the source of your problem and correct it.  We will use MLS Laser Therapy to accelerate healing so that the condition resolves at a faster rate.  Results have proven to be long term, if not permanent , for the majority of conditions we treat.

How do cells benefit from MLS Laser Therapy?  A healthy cell functions much like a well run factory performing its job.  This included making connective tissue hormones, building blood vessels, and the like.  When a cell is injured by trauma or inflammation, its mitochrondrial "battery" over works to exhaustion this causes the cell to become dormant, essentially going into hibernation.  Mitochondria in our cells respond to frequencies of light like plants react to ultraviolet from the sun.  MLS Laser pentrates over 2 inches, stimulating the cells photoreceptors, restoring energy and function to speed up the healing process.
