Dr. Emmanuel Fuzaylov is proud to offer MLS laser treatment for a variety of foot and ankle related problems. This state-of-the-art laser therapy uses a patented, multi-wave locked system to treat injuries and provide post-surgical healing therapy that is painless and incredibly effective. It is also effective in minimizing pain and inflammation.
What Conditions Can Be Treated with MLS Lasers?
Each injury or condition must be evaluated on an individual basis using X-rays, MRIs, and other diagnostic tools to determine the most effective and safest treatment options. However, there are several conditions commonly treated with MLS lasers, including:
- Sports Injuries
- Carpal Tunnel Syndrome
- Chronic Pain
- Post-surgical pain
- Soft tissue injuries
In many cases, a round of MLS laser therapy can lead to a reduction or elimination of the need for prescription pain relievers and other therapies. It can be so effective that for some patients, injections or surgery are no longer needed, thereby eliminating the need for more invasive treatments. For those who have required surgery, using MLS laser therapy can reduce post-operative pain and swelling and speed the healing process.
Advantages of MLS Laser Treatment
There are many advantages to using MLS laser therapy for injuries, arthritis, and after foot or ankle surgery. The use of low and high-intensity laser light targeting specific regions of the foot and ankle results in a reduction of inflammation in joints, tendons, and muscles. It also reduces edema, the build-up of fluid in body tissues, that can contribute to discomfort and slow the healing process. MLS laser treatment also shortens recovery time and is effective without the use of prescription medications or injections. In some patients, MLS laser treatments are so effective at healing injuries that surgery is no longer required. MLS laser therapy has no side effects, making it an excellent alternative to prescriptions or surgery. It is particularly helpful for those with a history of drug interactions or side effects and those who do not want surgery or injections.
How MLS Laser Therapy Works
MLS lasers use specific wavelengths of laser light to stimulate cells on the molecular level. This stimulation encourages cell renewal and healing in tendons, muscles, and ligaments, so they recover faster. It also reduces inflammation in arthritic joints, so pain is minimized. There are several ways these specific wavelengths of laser light affect the body to promote healing and pain production. The light increases blood circulation to the area being treated, which also increases oxygen levels. Both of these, in turn, encourage healing and cell renewal. MLS laser therapy also stimulates reabsorption of fluids by the body, minimizing edema. This therapy works below the surface, penetrating three to four centimeters beneath the skin’s surface for deep healing.
What to Expect
Each patient’s MLS laser therapy program is created to meet the specific needs of their injury or condition. Dr. Fuzaylov takes into account the severity of the problem as well as the individual’s overall health and the ultimate goal of the therapy. A typical round of laser therapy will take between six and twelve sessions, with each session lasting 10-15 minutes. Most patients undergo MLS laser therapy two or three times each week. After a round of laser therapy is complete, Dr. Fuzaylov will determine whether any follow-up sessions are needed.
