MLS Laser is a Key Treatment Option for Pain Relief
When you think of pain relief, you think of something that will work without causing more pain. MLS Laser is one treatment that fits the bill. It is a pain Laser that is in fact, painless! This particular Laser uses light energy and converts it to biomechanical energy by stimulating your own body’s healing mechanisms at the cellular level. In essence, it recruits your body’s own naturally occurring cellular turnover and enhances this mechanism so your body can fight pain and inflammation.
What Does MLS Mean?
MLS stands for Multiwave Lock System. It is a technology that delivers light in two distinct wavelengths – the 808 nanometer wavelength and the 905 nanometer wavelength. Why the two different wavelengths? The lower one concentrates on reduction in inflammation and edema, and the higher one concentrates on pain reduction resulting in an analgesic effect. The combination of these two wavelengths produces greater pain relief as they affect different pathways causing the pain. In addition, by working two different pathways, it is minimizing any thermal damage that could possibly occur to the cells. The dual action low energy Laser light works on your cells at the cellular level, superficially targeting the mitochondria. The mitochondria are considered the “power houses” of the cells. These microscopic mitochondria take nutrients from our bodies and create energy rich molecules for the cell. This activity in turn promotes healing.
