The POWER of MLS Laser Therapy
Why MLS laser therapy?
Foot pain can be a terrible distraction in your life, especially if your lifestyle or work has you on your feet much of the day. MLS Laser therapy is a significant breakthrough in the treatment of various painful conditions of the foot and ankle. Since having been cleared by the FDA in 2002, MLS Laser Therapy has become an important tool in modern podiatric care.
With MLS Laser Therapy, you will experience painless waves that penetrate deep into the tissue to reduce pain, inflammation and arthritis as well as promote cell regeneration and healing. You will find that laser therapy can be an important part of restoring you to a pain free life.
What is laser therapy for pain?
MLS Laser Therapy does not require the use of drugs or surgery, there are no known side effects, and it is quick and convenient. According to studies performed by top academic institutions, such as Harvard University, laser therapy is equal to or more effective than other forms of therapy.
Will laser therapy hurt?
This form of laser treatment is pain free.
How long does each session take?
A laser therapy treatment will typically take only 15 to 20 minutes. The number of treatments, of course, will vary according to the severity of the condition being treated. The usual treatment regimen consists of 6 to 12 visits.
How quickly will I see results?
Our patients often begin to feel improvement with laser therapy after only two to three visits where others with more chronic conditions may need to have six treatments before a significant reduction in pain is experienced. Each of our patients is unique and we will tailor a treatment plan to meet your unique needs.
Are the results long lasting?
The purpose of MLS Laser Therapy is to bring about healing rather than simply masking pain or treating symptoms. At The Foot and Ankle Treatment Center our goal is to treat the root of your pain and inflammation. It is common to see long lasting results.
Will I need other forms of therapy as well?
MLS Laser Therapy alone will often be an effective approach to healing painful conditions of the foot. There are also times when combining laser therapy with other forms of treatment such as physical therapy, electrotherapy or chiropractic may be a more effective approach. In many instances getting into “feet friendly” footwear or custom orthotic insoles will go along way in reducing your pain and helping your feet heal. Dr. Gowdie and his team will evaluate your specific needs and work to get you back on your feet….pain free.
