Cold Laser Therapy: At the Forefront

M6 LaserAmerican Foot and Leg Specialists are proud to provide the FDA approved MLS laser therapy, or cold laser therapy, treatment for many conditions including foot and ankle injuries. This is another example of the many ways our practice remains at the forefront of advanced medical technologies.

MLS Laser or Cold Laser Therapy

MLS laser therapy, also known as cold laser therapy, is an alternative health solution for relief from painful feet without surgery or medication. And, it is sometimes used to aid in healing following foot or ankle surgery. It is a state-of-the-art procedure that assists in restoring mobility to patients with various foot ailments and conditions that cause foot pain. It has been proven to be an effective treatment through extensive studies conducted by some of the most credible institutions in the country, including Harvard University.

How Does It Work?

MLS laser therapy is a safe and quick and affordable solution to repair painful feet. Relief is seen in just a few treatments. American Foot and Leg Specialists are one of the few podiatric practices in the Atlanta area to offer this cutting-edge treatment.

MLS laser therapy is considered an alternative health solution because it lets the injuries heal themselves. The cold laser speeds up the growth and reproduction of cells in the treated area, allowing any torn or overstretched tissue, ligaments or tendons to quickly heal themselves the way they would without therapy. The treatment provides an anti-inflammatory effect to pain in the feet by zeroing in on the exact area that needs to be treated and penetrating the surrounding deep tissues.

MLS laser therapy manages pain while reducing inflammation and increasing mobility. This non-surgical treatment delivers rapid results with no negative side effects for the these and other conditions:

  • Sports injuries
  • Sprains and strains
  • Post-surgical swelling
  • Tendonitis
  • Wounds
  • Bruising

How Soon Does It Start Working?

Patients report they start experiencing significantly less pain after 3 or 4 eight minute treatments. Pain relief is felt immediately as the laser activates acupuncture points. Faster nerve cell recreation prevents numbness and limb impairment and allows the therapy to be a long-term alternative health solution.

Each patient is unique: therefore, results may vary.
