MLS Laser Therapy

Manage Pain, Reduce Inflammation & Restore Mobility

It has been, and always will be, MIPA’s mission to invest in the best technology and people in order to get you the greatest results possible. That is why we offer one of the latest Class IV Laser technologies on the market, the M6 MLS Laser by Cutting Edge Laser Technologies.

The FDA-cleared MLS Therapy Laser uses concentrated light energy to stimulate the body’s own healing process to minimize pain and inflammation and reduce recovery time so you can return to a pain-free life.

For many patients, the MLS Therapy Laser has a dramatic pain-relieving effect, allowing patients to feel significantly better with only a few treatments.

What are the benefits of MLS® Laser Therapy?
  1. Anti-Inflammatory: MLS® Laser Therapy has an anti-edema effect as it causes vasodilation, but also because it activates the lymphatic drainage system which drains swollen areas. As a result, there is a reduction in swelling caused by bruising or inflammation.
  2. Analgesic: MLS® Laser Therapy has a beneficial effect on nerve cells. It blocks pain transmitted by these cells to the brain which decreases nerve sensitivity. Also, due to the decreased inflammation, there is less edema and less pain. Another pain blocking mechanism involves the production of high levels of pain killing chemicals such as endorphins and enkephalin from the brain and adrenal gland.
  3. Accelerated Tissue Repair and Cell Growth: Photons of light from lasers penetrate deeply into tissue and accelerate cellular reproduction and growth. The laser light increases the energy available to the cell so that the cell can take on nutrients faster and get rid of waste products. As a result of exposure to laser light, damaged cells are repaired faster.
  4. Improved Vascular Activity: Laser light will significantly increase the formation of new capillaries in damaged tissue which speeds up the healing process, closes wounds quickly and reduces scar tissue. Additional benefits include acceleration of angiogenesis, which causes temporary vasodilation and increase in the diameter of blood vessels.
  5. Increases Metabolic Activity: MLS® Laser Therapy creates higher outputs of specific enzymes, greater oxygen and food particle loads for blood cells.
  6. Trigger Points and Acupuncture Points: MLS® Laser Therapy stimulates muscle trigger points and acupuncture points on a noninvasive basis providing musculoskeletal pain relief.
  7. Reduced Fibrous Tissue Formation: MLS® Laser Therapy reduces the formation of scar tissue following tissue damage from cuts, scratches, burns or surgery.
  8. Improved Nerve Function: Slow recovery of nerve functions in damaged tissue can result in numbness and impaired limbs. Laser light speeds the process of nerve cell reconnection and increase the amplitude of action potentials to optimize muscle healing.
  9. Immunoregulation: Laser light has a direct effect on immunity status by stimulating immunoglobulins and lymphocytes. Laser emissions are absorbed by chromophores (molecule enzymes) that react to laser light. Upon exposure to the laser, the enzyme flavomononucleotide is activated and starts the production of ATP (adenosinetriphosphate), which is the major carrier of cell energy and the energy source for all chemical reactions in the cells.
  10. Faster Wound Healing: Laser light stimulates fibroblast development in damaged tissue. Fibroblasts are the building blocks of collagen, which is the essential protein required to replace old tissue or to repair tissue injuries. As a result, MLS® Laser Therapy is effective post surgically and in the treatment of open wounds and burns.
Will MLS Laser Therapy work for me?
For 85%-90% of patients with musculoskeletal pain, inflammation or arthritis, the answer is “Yes!”. Most patients with pain, inflammation or arthritis report significant pain relief from MLS Laser Therapy treatments. Whether you have Achilles tendonitis, plantar fasciitis, neuroma, neuropathy, work or sports injury, or any other musculoskeletal pain, you are likely to benefit from MLS Laser Therapy. As a matter of fact, many patients who were scheduled for surgery were able to delay or cancel their surgery because MLS Laser Therapy alleviated their condition and reduced or eliminated their pain.
Does MLS Laser Therapy hurt?
That’s a great question. Through years of research and development, the MLS Laser was designed to treat conditions without an excessive thermal effect, often felt as heat. Most people report that they do not feel anything during the treatments. Occasionally you may feel a slight warming sensation at the treatment site, which is normal and is an indication that the inflammation is being relieved and that your body is responding properly.
Is the pain relief from MLS Laser Therapy long lasting?
For most patients, the answer is “Yes”. While each person and each condition varies, many patients receive tremendous relief from their pain and inflammation when they go through a series of MLS Laser Therapy treatments. While most patients may not need additional treatments in the future, some conditions, like arthritis, are degenerative. The great thing about MLS Laser Therapy for arthritic patients is that once you feel better, you can be more active and it is the increased activity that helps minimize the long term effects of arthritis. Even so, you may need an occasional single MLS treatment every 4 to 6 weeks over the course of the year just to hold the inflammation at bay and keep the arthritic pain in check.
What can I expect after treatment?
Most people experience positive results in 1 to 3 treatments, with the average course of treatment being 7 to 10 sessions. Swelling is greatly reduced and there is a rapid relief of pain. Acute conditions usually subside quickly, typically within one phase of treatments, while chronic conditions can be controlled with regular treatments. The effects of MLS Laser Therapy are cumulative; therefore, expect to see improvement as you proceed through your treatment plan. It is critical that once you start, you complete the course of treatments recommended by your doctor or symptoms are likely to reoccur.
