What is MLS Laser Therapy?
Class IV MLS laser therapy is a relatively new treatment for chronic pain conditions. The procedure is called laser therapy because the laser used is low in intensity, meaning it doesn't heat up the body when used. When the laser is applied to the treatment area, affected tissues absorb the light. This causes blood to rush to the treatment area, which promotes healing of damaged cells. MLS laser therapy stimulates all cell types including muscle, ligament, cartilage, and nerves. This is what makes it an effective treatment for many different painful conditions.
