MLS Laser Therapy For The Treatment of Inflammation

Inflammation is the body's natural response to injury or infection and we need a little bit of it to help us heal. But sometimes, things can go wrong and inflammation becomes chronic – leading to discomfort and limiting mobility. Whether it's a sports injury, tendonitis, or a chronic condition like arthritis, finding effective treatment is crucial for restoring quality of life. At Totally Podiatry, we are delighted to offer MLS® laser therapy - a cutting-edge treatment offering hope and relief to many.


MLS® (Multiwave Locked System) laser therapy is a non-invasive, painless procedure that uses specific wavelengths of light to stimulate the body's natural healing process. Unlike traditional surgical methods or medications, MLS® laser therapy targets inflammation at a cellular level, promoting tissue repair and reducing swelling.


How does it work?

The MLS® laser emits dual wavelengths of light – one that targets inflammation and edema, and another that aids in pain relief. These synchronised emissions penetrate deep into the tissues where they are absorbed by cells. This absorption triggers a cascade of biological responses, including increased circulation, enhanced cellular metabolism, and the release of endorphins, the body's natural painkillers.



MLS laser therapy is hugely versatile and can be used to treat a wide range of inflammatory conditions, including tendonitis, bursitis, plantar fasciitis and can even help speed up the healing time in wounds. Whether you're an athlete recovering from an injury or an individual battling arthritis, MLS® laser therapy offers a safe and effective solution for managing pain and inflammation.


Numerous studies have demonstrated its benefits, showing significant reductions in pain and inflammation with minimal side effects. Unlike some medications, MLS® laser therapy does not carry the risk of dependency or adverse reactions, making it a really safe and effective treatment option.


Treatment sessions are typically short, ranging from a few minutes to half an hour, and require no downtime. You can resume your daily activities immediately after treatment, without the need for rest (speak to your clinician to discuss your own particular rehab needs).  Furthermore, MLS® laser therapy is non-invasive, eliminating the need for incisions or injections. This makes it an attractive option for those seeking alternatives to surgery or steroid injections . Additionally, the lack of side effects makes it suitable for individuals of all ages, including children and the elderly.
