Here at InStride- Crystal Coast Podiatry, we are proud to offer this state-of-the-art treatment that is proving to be highly effective in alleviating a wide range of foot and ankle conditions. Let’s delve into the world of MLS Laser Therapy and discover how it can bring relief to your discomfort.

What is MLS Laser Therapy?

MLS Laser Therapy, also known as Multiwave Locked System Laser Therapy, is an innovative, non-invasive treatment that employs dual wavelengths of light to target areas of pain and inflammation in the foot and ankle. This cutting-edge therapy has gained popularity among healthcare professionals for its ability to accelerate healing, reduce pain, and promote tissue repair, all without any known side effects.

MLS Laser Therapy is a safe and painless procedure that can be used as a stand-alone treatment or in combination with other therapies. It has been approved by the FDA for use in the United States and has shown promising results in various clinical studies.

How Does MLS Laser Therapy Work?

The treatment involves the use of a specialized laser device that emits two synchronized wavelengths – one that is continuous and penetrates deeper into tissues, and another that is pulsed and has a more superficial effect. As a result of these wavelengths working together, the injured cells are stimulated to heal quicker.

When the MLS laser is applied to the affected area, the light energy is absorbed by the cells, triggering a series of biochemical reactions. This process enhances circulation, reduces inflammation, and stimulates the production of endorphins, the body’s natural painkillers. As a result, MLS Laser Therapy promotes rapid healing, reduces pain and swelling, and restores normal function to the foot and ankle.

What Foot and Ankle Conditions Does MLS Laser Therapy Treat?

  • Sports Injuries: Whether you are an enthusiastic athlete or a weekend warrior, sports-related foot and ankle injuries can be common. MLS Laser Therapy can expedite the healing process for conditions like sprains, strains, and overuse injuries, allowing you to get back in the game faster.
  • Heel Pain (Plantar Fasciitis and Achilles Tendinitis): Plantar fasciitis and Achilles tendinitis can be excruciatingly painful and significantly impact your daily life. MLS Laser Therapy targets the inflamed tissues in these areas, reducing pain and facilitating tissue repair, making every step more comfortable.
  • Ankle Pain: Chronic ankle pain resulting from injuries or conditions like ankle arthritis can be debilitating. MLS Laser Therapy can help reduce inflammation and enhance joint function, leading to improved mobility and pain relief.
  • Arthritis: Arthritis in the foot and ankle can be challenging to manage. MLS Laser Therapy offers a non-invasive alternative for pain relief and improving joint function, making it a valuable treatment option for arthritis.
  • Muscle Strains: Overworked or injured muscles in the foot and ankle can be treated effectively with MLS Laser Therapy. The treatment accelerates muscle repair and minimizes discomfort.
  • Neuropathy: For patients suffering from neuropathy, MLS Laser Therapy can help alleviate nerve pain and promote nerve regeneration, potentially improving sensation and mobility.
  • Wound Care: MLS Laser Therapy is beneficial in wound healing, even for surgical wounds. The laser’s regenerative properties can accelerate tissue repair and reduce the risk of infection.

MLS Laser Therapy vs. Traditional Treatments:

It’s natural to wonder how MLS Laser Therapy compares to traditional treatments for foot and ankle conditions. While conventional therapies like physical therapy, medications, and injections can offer relief, MLS Laser Therapy offers several distinct advantages:

  • Non-Invasive: MLS Laser Therapy is a non-invasive treatment, meaning there are no incisions, injections, or anesthesia required. This reduces the risk of complications and shortens recovery time.
  • Drug-Free: Unlike some medications that may have side effects or interactions, MLS Laser Therapy is drug-free and relies on the body’s natural healing mechanisms.
  • Faster Recovery: With its ability to stimulate tissue repair and reduce inflammation, MLS Laser Therapy often leads to faster recovery times compared to traditional treatments.
  • Painless Procedure: MLS Laser Therapy is painless and well-tolerated by patients of all ages, making it a preferred option for those who are sensitive to more invasive methods.
  • No Down Time: Since MLS Laser Therapy is non-invasive, patients can resume their daily activities immediately after the procedure, without the need for down time or prolonged rest.
  • Versatility: MLS Laser Therapy is effective for a wide range of foot and ankle conditions, making it a versatile treatment option for various patients.

What to Expect During MLS Laser Therapy Treatment?

Before undergoing MLS Laser Therapy, our experienced podiatrist at InStride- Crystal Coast Podiatry will perform a thorough evaluation of your foot and ankle condition. This assessment will help determine if MLS Laser Therapy is the right course of treatment for your specific needs.

During the treatment, you will be comfortably positioned, and the laser device will be applied directly to the affected area. The procedure is typically painless, with many patients describing a warm, soothing sensation during the session. The duration of each treatment session may vary depending on the extent and severity of your condition.

The number of MLS Laser Therapy sessions required will depend on your response to treatment and the nature of your foot and ankle condition. Many patients experience positive results after just a few sessions, while others may require a more extended treatment plan for chronic or complex conditions.
