MLS Laser Therapy

MLS Laser Therapy is a non-invasive, safe, and painless treatment modality where light is used to relieve pain, reduce inflammation and promote wound healing and soft tissue repair.

How can laser therapy help?

The primary biological action of laser results from stimulation of cellular transport mechanisms in the mitochondria, cell membranes and epithelial tissues.  This results in: 

  • Increased blood supply through vasodilation and improved microcirculation, which helps bring in more nutrients into cells, promoting faster tissue repair and remodelling. 

  • Swelling is also significantly reduced

  • An increase in cellular ATP production, a molecule which provides a cell the energy required for normal functioning

This stimulation enhances the body's natural healing processes.

What conditions can be treated with the MLS laser?

  • General pain management (acute or chronic)

  • Neck and back pain

  • Shoulder pain

  • Arthritis

  • Bursitis

  • Tendonitis

  • Muscle and ligament strains

  • Carpal Tunnel

  • Sciatica

  • Nerve injury

  • Post-operative recovery

  • Oedema / swelling

  • Haematomas

  • Ulcers and wounds

What makes the MLS laser different to other lasers?

The MLS system delivers a unique synchronised laser beam of two different wavelengths and powers, resulting in a synergistic effect where both the analgesic and anti-oedema effects are greater than if two single lasers had been used.​

Can anyone have laser therapy?

You will be screened prior to any laser treatment to ensure it is right for you.  Laser therapy is contra-indicated for:

  • Pregnant women

  • Around the eyes, thyroid, or over known or suspected cancerous tumours

  • Near any electronic implants, i.e. pacemaker, spinal stimulator

  • Active bleeding

  • Epilepsy that is sensitive to flashing light

What does the treatment involve?

Prior to the treatment, all metal objects must be removed from the body e.g. watches, jewellery.  The area to be treated should also be free of any creams, oils or make-up.

Safety glasses will be worn to protect your eyes from the laser.

The laser will need to be applied directly to your skin.

Treatment times are fast - 3 to10 minutes and depends on the condition being treated and number of locations.

Evidence suggests that acute injuries may require 3-6 treatments, and chronic conditions having 6-12 treatments, again depending on the pathology.  Benefits are often evident after just 2 treatments.
