Cold Laser and Pain Management

From the desk of Dr. Charles Kelsey

In our office we have the MLS Laser Therapy as well as Multiradiance M 4). The M6 is a class four laser. It is the wave of the future in Pain Management. With MLS laser you manage pain, reduce inflammation, and speed recovery. What is Laser Therapy? It is the use of specific wavelengths of light to treat painful and debilitating conditions. How does it work? Light energy enters the damaged cells and stimulates inter-cellular activity. This reduces pain in the area and speeds recovery of the damaged cells. Once the cells recover, the healing process is complete.

What can I expect during a treatment? MLS Laser Therapy is a painless treatment that lasts an average of 8 minutes. You may experience a comfortable sensation at the point of application. What can I expect after the treatment? Most people experience positive results in 1 to 3 treatments, with the average course of treatments being 7 to 20 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. (The same is true of our Mult-Radiance M4 Medical Cold Laser.) 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 or symptoms are likely to reoccur.
