The innovative and patented Multiwave Locked System Therapy Laser was developed in an effort to produce an efficient and simultaneous effect on pain, inflammation, and oedema, exceeding the limits of traditional LLLT (low power) and concerns of HP (high power) laser therapy. MLS technology delivers therapeutic wavelengths, 808nm (anti-oedemic and anti-inflammatory) and 905nm (analgesic), allowing a tissue penetration depth of 3-4 cm. An energetic synergy is created when delivering these wavelengths that produces greater anti-inflammatory and analgesic effects than either can produce on its own, while minimizing the risk of thermal damage. It is this unique combination and synchronization of continuous and pulsed emissions that characterizes MLS and distinguishes it from other Class IV lasers.
Unlike early-generation Class IV technology, MLS Laser Therapy has the capability to deliver controlled laser energy. This unique feature provides more accurate therapeutic dose delivery, which means consistent and repeatable results when treating foot injuries like Plantar Fasciitis and Achilles Tendonitis.
How Many Treatments Will I need?
MLS laser treatment is cumulative which means each treatment builds upon the effects of the last. For this reason, we try and see you as regularly as possible to maintain and increase the effects of each treatment. The number of treatments required varies because everybody is different, however, depending on the condition and your body’s response you may need between 2-15 sessions. Generally, we work on an initial
course of x amount of sessions carried out at 2-3 sessions per week. Acute conditions may need fewer treatments with chronic issues usually requiring more. Please attend each session as recommended by your practitioner so you can obtain optimal effects from your laser treatment.
How Quickly Will It Work?
We often see results after 2-4 sessions. Remember that laser is cumulative and you’re most likely to see results as you go through your course of treatment. It’s also really important that you stick to any other elements of your treatment plan such as exercises, taping or activity modification etc to allow for the best results possible.
What If The Treatment Does Not Work?
Though the short-term effects are very good, the long-term benefits of this treatment may take up to three months. If, over this time, there is no improvement in your condition, then your podiatrist may offer you other treatment options.
