MLS® Laser Therapy in Miami, FL
Traditional treatments for neck and back pain may not be appropriate or adequate for all patients. Laser technologies provide new avenues for safe and effective complementary and stand-alone treatments. Advanced Sport and Spine Therapy offers MLS® laser therapy to men and women in Aventura, Kendall, Hialeah, and Fort Lauderdale and the surrounding areas.
The medical community has embraced laser technology for treating a multitude of medical conditions because the energy from the devices promotes the natural healing of the body. Each type of laser is designed to penetrate the body at a certain depth and target a specific type of tissue while preserving surrounding, dissimilar tissues. We recommend MLS®, or Multiwave Locked System, laser therapy for treating pain and inflammation associated with:
- Degenerative disc disease
- Certain types of trauma
- Intervertebral disc disease
What is MLS® Laser Therapy?
MLS® laser therapy is an FDA-approved treatment that uses two wavelengths of light energy. The system is more effective for symptom management because it simultaneously treats inflammation and pain. Other laser therapies are not specifically designed to reduce pain, and patients must wait for the inflammation to subside before the pain is managed. MLS® laser therapy offers the benefits of other laser treatments combined with immediate pain reduction.
Benefits of MLS® Laser Therapy
With MLS® laser therapy, you experience:
- Pain management without prescription pain medications that may be addictive.
- No unwanted side effects.
- Accelerated healing and symptom management.
- Little to no downtime, unlike surgery that may require weeks or months to recover.
How will MLS® Laser Therapy Help Me?
MLS® laser therapy is a non-surgical, non-invasive treatment that provides immediate anti-inflammatory and pain management benefits for our patients. We recommend the treatment for:
- Musculoskeletal conditions.
- Certain neurological conditions.
- General management of pain and inflammation.
- Degenerative joint conditions.
- Injuries to muscles, tendons and ligaments.
MLS® laser therapy may also be recommended as a pre- or post-surgical treatment.
The Procedure for MLS® Laser Therapy
MLS® laser therapy involves several sessions for each treatment. The typical care plan includes from one to three treatments, and each treatment includes seven to 10 sessions. Each session takes less than 15 minutes. During the session, you may experience a soothing sensation as the laser energy penetrates the soft tissues. Depending on the condition being treated, your physical therapist may recommend at-home exercises or limited activities after the treatment.
