What is Laser Therapy and how does it work?
Laser Therapy is a therapeutic treatment that uses light energy (photons) for tissue healing and pain reduction. The light energy penetrates deeply into damaged cells and stimulates cellular activity. As a result of exposure to the laser, the cells of tendons, ligaments, muscles and nerves repair themselves. Once the cells recover, the healing process is complete.
What is MLS?
MLS stands for Multiwave Locked System.
How is MLS different?
MLS Therapy uses two wavelengths of light to treat pain and debilitating conditions, thereby overcoming the limits of traditional laser treatments, which only utilise one wavelength of light. The double effect of the two wavelengths allows MLS to treat inflammation AND pain within a short period of time. This cannot be said of other lasers.
What can I expect during treatment?
Over 90% of patients experience positive results after the 3rd treatment, with the average course of treatment being 7 to 10 sessions, depending upon whether the condition is acute or chronic. Acute conditions usually subside quickly, typically within one phase of treatments, while chronic conditions can be controlled with regular treatments. The effects of MLS Laser Therapy are cumulative; therefore, expect to see improvement as you proceed through your treatment plan. It is critical that once you start, you complete the entire course of recommended number of treatments, or symptoms are likely to reoccur.
You will need an Initial Consultation to assess your pain, after which laser treatments will be scheduled. MLS Laser Therapy costs $80 per treatment. The following treatment packages are available and payable in full and in advance:
- Post-op package – 3 Treatments – $240
- Acute pain package – 6 Treatments – $450
- Chronic pain package – 10 Treatments – $700
We accept Cash, Credit Card or Eftpos payments.
