The MLS (multi-locked system) Laser is the leading laser treatment therapy for the reduction of pain, inflammation and arthritis in the body.

The first step in receiving MLS Laser Therapy is a consultation with one of our providers to see if Laser Therapy is the right choice of care for your condition. While MLS Laser Therapy is safe, pain-free, and has no known side effects, there are certain conditions that preclude a patient from receiving treatment with Laser Therapy. Together, we will go over your treatment plan and any questions or concerns you may have before initiating treatment. For most conditions, it is recommended you have 3 sessions per week for a minimum of 2 weeks for the best outcome. MLS Laser Therapy treatment sessions last an average of approximately 10-15 minutes.
The MLS Laser needs to be applied directly to clean, lotion free skin, and you will be instructed on how to bare the area to be treated to maintain modesty. Once the laser is set up and turned on, you should not feel anything because it is a cold light laser, although occasionally you may feel a slight warming sensation in the area being treated. Most people see results within the first 24 to 48 hours following their treatments due to the bio-stimulation effects. The chiropractor will check your progress during the course of your treatment sessions to evaluate the effectiveness of the laser on your unique condition and make any necessary changes.
