MLS Laser Therapy

Our clinical audits of foot and ankle problems have confirmed that the use of MLS cold laser results in functional improvement and decreased pain following completion of our laser protocol.

How does it work?

  • Laser therapy uses specific light waves to accelerate the natural healing processes.
  • The laser operates simultaneously at two wavelengths to provide anti-oedemic, anti-inflammatory, and analgesic effects.
  • The energy emitted stimulates intra-cellular activity. This reduces pain in the area and speeds recovery of damaged cells. The healing process is assisted by this action.

What can laser be used for?

The MLS laser can be used to treat many conditions including: Muscle strains/tears

  • Neurological pain
  • Swelling (acute and chronic)
  • Foot ulcers
  • Arthritis
  • Heal pain and plantar fasciitis
  • Shin splints
  • Post-surgical areas
  • Ankle sprains
  • Achilles tendonitis

Depending on your problem the laser therapy can be a standalone treatment or built into a management plan with other treatments.

Laser Therapy FAQ

Does the laser hurt or burn ?

No. MLS  lasers do not generate perceivable heat. Therefore, when the laser contacts the skin the patient experiences no burning as a result of the laser.

Most people feel nothing at all while a few may feel a slight tingling or warmth during the treatment.

Why isn’t this laser warm?

The MLS laser utilises two different laser frequencies and wavelengths to produce a laser that is heat neutral. This is revolutionary technology supersedes previous lasers.

Do I have to restrict my activities after my treatment?

No, after laser therapy you are able to continue doing your normal everyday activities. In some cases, the podiatrist may advise you to modify your activity if the laser is being used in conjunction with other treatments.

How long before I feel the benefits ?

Our data suggests that most patients feel a change in the days following their initial laser session. In long term or chronic conditions, sometimes it can take several sessions before an significant improvement is noticed.

Is there an ideal number of treatment?

Our data indicates that 6-8 sessions of laser treatments are optimal for reducing pain and improving musculoskeletal function. However we will tailor a plan to best suit your condition

Will it interfere with my medication?

No the laser will no.
