MLS LASER THERAPY
The innovative and patented Multiwave Locked System (MLS) Therapy Laser was developed in an effort to produce an efficient and simultaneous effect on pain, inflammation, and edema, exceeding the limits of traditional LLLT (low power) and concerns of HP (high power) laser therapy. MLS technology delivers therapeutic wavelengths, 808nm (anti-edemic and anti-inflammatory) and 905nm (analgesic), allowing a tissue penetration depth of 3-4 cm. An energetic synergy is created when delivering these wavelengths that produces greater anti-inflammatory and analgesic effects than either can produce on its own, while minimizing the risk of thermal damage. It is this unique combination and synchronization of continuous and pulsed emissions that characterizes MLS and distinguishes it from other Class IV lasers.
Unlike early-generation Class IV technology, MLS Laser Therapy has the capability to deliver controlled laser energy. This unique feature provides more accurate therapeutic dose delivery, which means consistent and repeatable results.
Laser Therapy is an FDA-cleared treatment for pain that uses concentrated light energy to stimulate the body’s own healing process. Laser therapy minimizes pain and inflammation as an alternative to prescriptions and surgery. It reduces recovery times, which is especially important post-surgery, so patients can quickly return to a higher quality of life. MLS (multi-wave locked system) technology in specific delivers two therapeutic wavelengths – the 808nm (anti-edemic and anti-inflammatory) and the 905nm (analgesic). The combination of these wavelengths produces greater pain relieving effects than either can produce on their own, while also minimizing the risk of thermal damage. It is this unique combination and synchronization of continuous and pulsed emissions that characterizes MLS and distinguishes it from other Class IV lasers.
Frequently Asked Questions
When should I consider MLS?
Dr . Machado recommends MLS When:
For 85-90% of patients suffering from pain associated with arthritis, sprains or strains, sports injuries, inflammation, or other debilitating conditions, the answer is “Yes!”
Whether you have shoulder and neck pain, rotator cuff, carpal tunnel, aching knees, Achilles tendinitis, plantar fasciitis, Neuropathy, musculoskeletal pain or are recovering from surgery, they are likely to benefit from MLS Laser Therapy.
Ronald Lederman, MD of Ledrman Kwartowitz Center For Orthopedics & Sports Medicine has been offering laser therapy to patients for over 7 years and believes that the dual action, low energy light laser increases the mitochondrial activity of the cell, which creates a super-cell that promotes healing. He stated in a recent article published in Medco Forum, “Not only are we offering this laser to patients to eliminate painful conditions, but we’re also offering it to patients who have had surgeries, and we’re finding that they’re healing faster. We’re seeing a 50% reduction in recovery time.”
