What is a laser?

Laser is an acronym for Light Amplification by the Stimulated Emission of Radiation.

What is laser therapy?

Laser therapy is the use of specific wavelengths of light to treat painful and debilitating conditions.

How does it work?

Light energy enters the damaged cells and stimulates inter-cellular activity. This reduces pain in the area and speeds recovery of the damaged cells. Once the cells recover, the healing process is complete.

Effects of MLS Laser Therapy:

  1. Reduced Inflammation (Vasodilation and Activation of Lymphatic Drainage System)
  2. Reduced Pain (Blocks Pain Signals Transmitted to Nerve Cells)
  3. Accelerated Tissue Repair and Cell Growth
  4. Improved Vascular Activity
  5. Increases Metabolic Activity
  6. Stimulation of Trigger and Acupuncture Points
  7. Reduced Fibrous Tissue Formation from Cuts, Burns, etc.
  8. Improved Nerve Function
  9. Immunoregulation
  10. Faster Wound Healing (Stimulation of Fibroblast Development)

What are the most common indications for therapy?

It has been reported that the following conditions has been effectively treated with MLS:

  • Arthritis
  • Tendonitis
  • Wounds
  • Post-Surgical Swelling
  • Inflamed Ears
  • Lick Granuloma
  • Hip Dysplasia
  • Disc Disease
  • Lameness
  • Sinusitis
    …and many more!

What is MLS?

MLS Stands for Multiwave Locked System. MLS is the name of the technology that utilizes the patented combination of wavelengths. 

Is MLS Laser Therapy approved by the FDA?

The FDA has cleared the use of MLS Laser Therapy and it is also patented via the U.S. Patent Office.

What can be expected during a treatment?

MLS Laser Therapy is a painless treatment that can last a few seconds to many minutes, depending on the condition and area being treated. Your pet may experience a comfortable sensation at the point of application, but it is common to have no sensation during the treatment.  Your pet should not feel any heat during the treatment, which is unique to MLS Laser Therapy.

What can be expected after the treatment?

Most pets experience positive results in 1 to 3 treatments, with the average course of treatment being 7 to 10 sessions. Swelling is greatly reduced and there is a rapid relief of pain. 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 the treatment plan progresses. It is important that once your pet starts receiving laser therapy that the entire course of treatments is completed, as recommended by your doctor.

 

Kona is an 8 year old, 75 lb. Labrador retriever mix who has Tibial Plateau Leveling Osteotomy (TPLO) surgery on his left knee in early June.  After just one laser treatment, Kona began to use his leg slightly.  After two treatments Kona’s progress continued and we discontinued the anti-inflammatory medicine.  Five treatments later, Kona is using his leg 100%. - Cheryl

Buster, our yellow lab, will be 13 in February.  …  Following the first treatments [of MLS Laser Therapy] to both his knees and hips, we could see an increased confidence in his gait, and an improvement in his ability to sit, to lie down, and to squat.  … He always looks forward to morning walks, but he is now able to walk a little faster and for a little longer.  He is also getting in and out of the car more easily, and he does love his rides. … We recommend laser therapy for other pets who suffer from joint pain associated with arthritis.” - Patrick and Elizabeth
