Every year, the newer, “bigger and better” version of stuff comes out. Cars, computers, tools, even appliances are upgraded to try to offer you the newest perks and features you need or want, whether or not the old version is worn out or finished yet. Unlike the new cars and new computer operating systems, the MLS pain laser is not just an upgraded version of an older technology. It’s different from traditional lasers used to treat pain, which makes it more helpful for you in the long run.
So what’s the difference between the MLS pain laser and a traditional low-level laser? The biggest difference is that a traditional laser uses a powerful light beam operating on only one wavelength, while the MLS uses multiple. More importantly, the beams that the MLS laser uses are synchronized. Even if a traditional unit used more than one wavelength to treat your pain, the missing synchronization means it isn’t able to effectively replicate what the MLS laser can do.
The benefit of having synchronized multiple wavelengths is that it can treat multiple levels of pain. A traditional low-level laser is very effective at treating either inflammation and swelling or the immediate pain, but not both. This is because the different beams of light have different effects in your tissues.
One specific wavelength uses continuous light that stimulates circulation and encourages the body to re-absorb excess fluids in the tissues. This alleviates both swelling and inflammation. However, it takes longer for the pain to subside. The other traditional low-level laser uses light pulses to temporarily interrupt the way your body transmits pain signals. This provides immediate relief from your discomfort. Unfortunately, this is much less effective at actually dealing with inflammation problems in tissues.
That’s what makes this MLS pain laser unique. Because it uses multiple wavelengths in a synchronized way, the two pain-relieving effects reinforce each other and offer you both immediate and long-lasting relief. That’s also why our team at Podiatry Associates, P.C. uses this laser. We truly believe it makes a difference for people.If you’re struggling with pain, even if it’s not responding to other treatments, let us know! You may benefit from MLS pain laser therapy.
