Laser Therapy is an FDA-cleared treatment for pain that uses concentrated light energy to stimulate the body’s own healing process. Laser therapy minimizes pain and inflammation as an alternative to prescriptions and surgery. It reduces recovery times, which is especially important post-surgery, so patients can quickly return to a higher quality of life.
Laser therapy uses light to favor and accelerate the body’s natural healing processes. The laser beam is moved over the skin so that the light energy (photons) penetrates the tissue where it interacts with various molecules (chromophores) that cause different biological effects. It produces a photochemical, photothermal and photomechanical effect.
For 85-90% of patients suffering from pain associated with arthritis, sprains or strains, sports injuries, inflammation, or other debilitating conditions, the answer is “Yes!” Whether you have shoulder and neck pain, rotator cuff, carpal tunnel, aching knees, Achilles tendinitis, plantar fasciitis, sciatica, musculoskeletal pain or are recovering from surgery, they are likely to benefit from MLS Laser Therapy.
Ronald Lederman, MD of Ledrman Kwartowitz Center For Orthopedics & Sports Medicine has been offering laser therapy to patients for over 7 years and believes that the dual action, low energy light laser increases the mitochondrial activity of the cell, which creates a super-cell that promotes healing. He stated in a recent article published in Medco Forum, “Not only are we offering this laser to patients to eliminate painful conditions, but we’re also offering it to patients who have had surgeries, and we’re finding that they’re healing faster. We’re seeing a 50% reduction in recovery time.”
