Laser Therapy Q & A
How does laser therapy treat chronic pain?
Laser therapy involves the use of different wavelengths of light to treat areas of pain. The Cutting Edge Laser Technologies’ Multiwave Locked System (MLS) Therapy Laser delivers light energy into the deeper layers of damaged tissue. The energy stimulates activity at the cellular level and reduces inflammation to increase the efficiency and speed of your healing.
Your Orthopaedic and Rehabilitation Centers provider may recommend laser therapy as part of your treatment for inflammation, swelling, and different types of chronic joint pain, including:
- Back pain
- Knee pain
- Ankle pain
- Shoulder pain
After a careful review of your medical history and existing level of pain, your Orthopaedic and Rehabilitation Centers provider designs a treatment plan that focuses on using MLS Laser Therapy to ease chronic pain.
What can I expect during laser therapy?
Laser therapy is an in-office, noninvasive treatment that your Orthopaedic and Rehabilitation Centers provider can typically complete in a few minutes. Most people tolerate laser therapy well and experience a warming sensation in the treatment area.
It may take some time to see the results of your treatment as the cells continue to heal. Your Orthopaedic and Rehabilitation Centers provider may recommend several MLS Laser Therapy sessions to ensure you receive the maximum benefit from treatment.
Are the results of MLS Laser Therapy long-lasting?
The benefits of MLS Laser Therapy are cumulative, meaning your results improve with each treatment. Provided you complete your course of therapy, you can expect long-term relief of pain.
Following your initial MLS Laser Therapy session, you should notice a significant reduction in pain and swelling.
Through regular maintenance treatments, your Orthopaedic and Rehabilitation Centers provider can keep your chronic pain well-controlled to help you retain range of motion and functionality.
What are the benefits of MLS Laser Therapy?
MLS Laser Therapy is beneficial for relieving chronic pain when other treatments don’t work. Your therapy can also reduce dependence on pain medication while increasing the efficiency of your healing.
Other benefits of MLS Laser Therapy include:
- No surgical risks
- Fast treatment times
- Reduced inflammation
- No harmful side effects
In addition to treating your pain, MLS Laser Therapy can quickly repair wounds, ulcers, and sprained or strained muscles.
