MLS Laser Q & A

What is MLS laser therapy?

Laser therapy has long been used to help treat conditions related to chronic pain. Targeted light allows photons to penetrate tissue and create specific biological effects.

The multiwave locked system (MLS) laser addresses symptoms related to inflammation, pain, and edema, providing more benefits than traditional low-power lasers without the dangers of high-power laser therapy. The MLS laser can penetrate about 3-4 centimeters into the tissue, delivering a therapeutic effect that's more accurate and effective than other methods.



What conditions can MLS laser therapy address?

At Gershon Pain Specialists, the team uses MLS laser therapy to address a wide range of symptoms and conditions related to the musculoskeletal system, including:

  • Strains and sprains
  • Tendonitis
  • Sciatica
  • Arthritis
  • Disc problems
  • Soft tissue injuries
  • Spinal compression

MLS laser therapy can also deliver benefits if you have scarring, postsurgical pain, or physical pain related to nerve problems or immune health.

What are the benefits of MLS laser therapy?

The MLS laser therapy system offers patients several benefits, the most compelling of which is pain relief.

Clinical research shows that MLS has an 85-90% success rate when it comes to relieving pain and inflammation. Combined with lifestyle modifications or other interventional therapies, it’s a potent method for restoring total body health and achieving a pain-free life.

Additionally, the MLS laser therapy has no adverse side effects and can replace the need for surgery or reliance on prescription pain medications. The treatment naturally helps restore oxygen and blood flow to affected areas, improves circulation, and triggers the body’s natural healing response.



What should I expect after MLS laser therapy treatment?

Patients with acute pain need six MLS sessions to experience relief, and patients with chronic pain need 12 sessions. The Gershon Pain Specialists team can create a customized treatment plan to get you on the way to being pain-free and mobile.
