Is MLS Laser Therapy Right for Me?

A noninvasive treatment that eases pain and inflammation in your feet and ankles may sound too-good-to-be-true, but it’s possible with MLS laser therapy offered at Go Feet.

The MLS (multiwave locked system) uses patented, cutting-edge technology to efficiently reduce pain, inflammation, and swelling (edema) associated with conditions like peripheral neuropathy, arthritis, and tendonitis.

MLS laser therapy may be for you if you suffer from a chronic foot and/or ankle condition. Read on to learn what the providers at Go Feet in Mays Landing and Hammonton, New Jersey, have to say about it.

All about MLS laser therapy

Laser therapy uses concentrated light to stimulate your body’s natural healing capabilities. When applied expertly, the laser energy penetrates deep into damaged tissue, so cells begin to repair and regenerate. As a result, you experience less pain and inflammation as well as quick healing, which means you can get back to doing the activities you love.

The state-of-the-art MLS laser converts light into biochemical energy that, when delivered into your tissues, accelerates healing. Blood supply and circulation improve. Your ability to heal is enhanced.

The MLS laser features multiple wavelengths that our providers can adjust to treat a wide variety of conditions. It’s FDA-cleared and safe for all patients. Laser therapy causes no side effects either.

Conditions that benefit from MLS laser treatment

At Go Feet, patients benefit from MLS laser treatment for a number of common, frustrating conditions like:

MLS laser treatment also helps patients heal after surgery or if they have a slow-healing wound. The light energy is effective, noninvasive, and painless.

Candidates for MLS laser therapy

Laser therapy is an effective, drug-free way to treat a number of inflammatory foot and ankle conditions. Every patient is unique, so it’s best for you to set up a free consultation with one of the expert podiatrists at Go Feet to determine if the technology will work for you. Oftentimes, MLS therapy works best when combined with other interventions like physical therapy, electrotherapy, and massage.

What to expect with MLS therapy

Each treatment session is short, lasting just 10-15 minutes. The laser is controlled robotically and placed about 8 inches above the treatment area. You feel little sensation during treatment.

Your treatment plan is customized to you, but generally, plan to come in two to three times per week as your condition resolves. Usually, you’ll need 6-12 total treatments, but may benefit from regular maintenance sessions if you have a chronic condition like arthritis.

Many patients report feeling improvements after one to three treatments, but everyone responds differently to MLS laser therapy. If you have a severe condition, you may not notice a change in your symptoms until after six sessions.

Results are long-lasting because the MLS laser has encouraged healing. MLS laser therapy doesn’t just mask your symptoms for the short-term.

Don’t continue to suffer foot and ankle pain. Call one of the offices, or use the online tool to set up an appointment and learn if MLS laser therapy or other treatments can help you find relief and restore function. We here at Go Feet make healing your foot problems our top priority.
