There is rarely a “one absolute” form of treatment for every foot and ankle condition. Different forms of treatment will have different rates of effectiveness depending on the patient, the severity of the condition, and other factors. That’s why listening to a patient and providing a thorough evaluation are so important!
The more options of treatment we can provide, however, the better equipped we can be to provide the best care for all our patients. That is why we are proud to provide advanced treatment options at our offices.
MLS Laser Treatment for Pain
Laser therapy is not just for fungal nails. A different form of laser therapy can be used to treat pain and aid in recovery.
Multiwave Locked System (MLS) laser therapy works by stimulating the body’s own natural abilities using light energy. It is often recommended for soft tissue injuries and pain, such as Achilles tendinitis and plantar fasciitis.
By stimulating an area of pain, MLS laser therapy can:
- Increase blood flow to the area, and even encourage the formation of new tiny blood vessels. This provides additional oxygen and nutrients to cells in need, and can also help carry out excess fluid to reduce swelling.
- Cause an acceleration or re-ignition of recovery processes in damaged cells, reducing overall recovery time.
MLS laser therapy is conducted over a series of sessions, each tending to take less than 30 minutes. Many patients report feeling effects directly after the first session, while most report increasingly stacking positive results with each successive treatment.
When it comes to getting rid of plantar warts, traditional methods of cutting, burning, or freezing leave a lot to be desired. A new form of technology, however, is now able to attack wart-causing viruses from the inside with much less pain and hassle.
