Medical Laser Therapy Science – Cutting Edge Lasers
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.
Laser Therapy – What Is MLS Laser Therapy?
What is Laser Therapy and How Does it Work? Manage Pain. Reduce Inflammation. Speed Recovery. Light energy enters the damaged cells and stimulates inter-cellular activity. This reduces pain in the area and speeds recovery of the damaged cells. Once the cells recover, the healing process is complete.
What are the most common indications for therapy?
The most common MLS Laser Therapy indications are pain relief, intervertebral disc disease, degenerative joint disease, arthritic conditions, muscular/skeletal system trauma, and inflammatory conditions.
What wavelengths are used in the MLS Laser Therapy?
MLS Laser Therapy uses both the 808nm and 905nm wavelengths simultaneously. The 808nm wavelength is delivered using continuous emission while the 905nm wavelength is delivered using pulsed emission.
Why are two wavelengths used?
MLS Laser Therapy uses two wavelengths to overcome the limits of traditional Laser Therapy. Traditional Laser therapy does not deliver both wavelengths in a reinforcing and synchronized fashion. Continuous laser emissions act fast on inflammation, stimulating blood and lymphatic circulation and inducing fast re-absorption of fluid build ups; however they only have a secondary effect on pain, which is diminished after reducing the inflammatory process. Pulsed laser emissions, on the other hand, have a practically immediate effect on pain, since they are able to induce analgesia, interfering with the very transmission of the pain impulse to the higher brain centers, but they are less effective at treating inflammation and edema.
Is MLS Laser Therapy cleared by the FDA?
Yes, the FDA has cleared the use of MLS Laser Therapy and it is also patented via the U.S. Patent Office.
What is the advantage of MLS Laser Therapy over traditional low-level lasers? (LLLT)
MLS Laser Therapy is able to induce strong anti-inflammatory, anti-edema, and analgesic effects simultaneously and within a short period of time. LLLT cannot achieve these results because of the limitations of using one or two wavelengths that are not synchronized. The patented control system that generates the MLS pulse synchronizes the emissions to achieve results previously unattainable. Thanks to this characteristic synchronization, the various therapeutic effects not only take place at the same time but reciprocally reinforce each other.
What is MLS?
MLS Stands for Multi-wave Lock System. MLS is the name of the technology used that utilizes the patented combination of wavelengths.
Are Cutting Edge MLS Laser Therapy Lasers Class IV?
Yes, MLS Lasers are Class IV lasers with a peak power of 25 watts.
What is the depth of penetration of the MLS laser?
The depth of penetration varies due to tissue type, but it will penetrate 3-5 cm in most cases.
How many treatments are usually needed to get results?
Results can often been seen after the first treatment. Most conditions have protocols that range from 6-12 treatments. The treatments are cumulative and are delivered 2-3 times per week for 2-3 weeks.
How was MLS Laser Therapy developed and tested?
MLS Laser Therapy has been developed and tested following a strict course of biomedical and clinical research. The effectiveness of the combination of the emissions making up the MLS pulse was initially tested in vitro on cellular cultures, then in vivo on animals, and finally by means of controlled clinical trials run by major state-of-the-art health organizations for treating traumatic and degenerative painful diseases.
What we’re finding is that 90% of our patients are achieving almost 90% relief of their symptoms, which is unheard of. It is the very latest in medical technology, and we are proud to offer our patients something no one else can.
– Ronald S. Lederman, MD, Center for Orthopedic Surgery, Sports Medicine & Physical Therapy
If we can avoid a medication, have a laser treatment that’s non-invasive, no side effects, very limited contraindications … then why not try when the results we’ve been getting are 90% plus?
– Mark Kwartowitz, DOCenter for Orthopedic Surgery, Sports Medicine and Physical Therapy
It’s benefited our patients because it requires less time for the healing process. And to me, that’s what it’s all about: getting them better as fast as possible and having confidence as a doctor that you’ll improve their quality of life. I had one patient who had five failed back surgeries, and now he looks like he never had pain.
– Andy Barlow, DC, DACNB, FACFNChiropractic Neurology Center of Tupelo
Without a doubt, the MLS laser has been transformational in our approach to diabetic polyneuropathy and related nerve issues … The traditional treatment of medicine and surgery has now been enhanced with an alternative that is pain-free, easy to use for both the patient and the doctor, and is devoid of side effects.
