Greater Milwaukee area podiatrist with MLS laserInnovative treatment methods designed to treat chronic foot and ankle issues continue to be developed. One of the most revolutionary treatment methods available today is called Multi-wave Locked System (MLS) laser therapy. This type of therapy uses a robotic laser to target and non-invasively penetrate areas in your feet or ankles where you may be experiencing pain, swelling, and tenderness.

Only in Our New Berlin Office

Our podiatrists, Dr. Lucy Meier and Dr. Amy Miller-Guhl, along with the rest of our team here at Third Coast Foot and Ankle, are thrilled to announce that we offer MLS laser therapy in our New Berlin office.

Offering MLS laser therapy to our patients speaks to our commitment to expanding our treatment options and our passion for staying up-to-date on the latest tools and technologies available to podiatrists.

What Is MLS Laser Therapy?

MLS laser therapy is a type of regenerative medicine that promotes soft tissue healing and repair. Approved by the FDA, this treatment option generates an anti-inflammatory effect within the body, which can significantly reduce pain, inflammation, and swelling. Many patients who undergo MLS laser therapy report long-lasting results.

Conditions We Treat With MLS Laser Therapy

MLS laser therapy is ideal for treating a variety of foot and ankle conditions and injuries, including the following:

  • Chronic heel and ankle pain. If you have been diagnosed with a condition that causes chronic heel or ankle pain—Achilles tendonitis or plantar fasciitis, for example—you may wish to consider MLS laser therapy to help alleviate the pain.
  • Sports injuries. Common sports injuries include sprains and strains. MLS laser therapy is an excellent option for athletes, especially because they want to get back on their feet and return to their sport as soon as possible.
  • Surgery. If you have undergone or plan to undergo a surgical procedure, you may be a candidate for MLS laser therapy treatments. Post-surgery, MLS laser therapy can accelerate the healing process and shorten your recovery time.
  • Neuropathy. Based on your specific condition, you may be able to receive MLS laser therapy to treat your neuropathy. Because peripheral neuropathy can damage the nerves in your feet, MLS laser therapy can be used to relieve numbness, tingling, and pain.

The Benefits of MLS Laser Therapy

Improved Vascular Activity

Because this patented laser system penetrates damaged tissue, the powerful light will cause new capillaries to form within those areas. As a result, blood flow will improve, and healing will begin.

Increased Metabolic Activity

By targeting cells in need of repair, the MLS laser helps supply your body with more enzymes, oxygen, and food particle loads. In turn, this increases your metabolic activity.

Accelerated Cellular Growth and Tissue Repair

MLS laser therapy encourages cellular growth and reproduction. Each cell that gets repaired will be better equipped to absorb useful nutrients and eliminate harmful waste products. This makes it possible for the tissue to recover.

Improved Immune Function

This laser system can stimulate the body’s lymphocytes and immunoglobulins. Specific cellular enzymes are activated once they absorb the laser’s emissions, allowing MLS laser therapy to improve immune function.

What to Expect During an MLS Laser Therapy Treatment

During each session, which will last approximately 20 minutes, our podiatrists will position the laser above the affected areas. You will be asked to sit back and relax while the laser delivers its highly therapeutic wavelengths into your skin.

Again, MLS laser therapy is light-based and completely non-invasive. You can resume your normal activities following each treatment session.
