• Question: What is MLS Laser therapy?
    • Answer: The FDA cleared, pain-free MLS laser therapy uses concentrated light energy to stimulate the body's own healing by penetrating deeply into damaged cells, stimulating intracellular activity. This speeds up the healing of damaged tissues.
  • Question: How is  the MLS laser different from other lasers?
    • Answer: All lasers currently available on the market, including those in chiropractic or physical therapy offices, only use one laser. The MLS laser is different and one-of-a-kind in that it uses a patented two laser system. The MLS laser has one laser that works exclusively on pain sensors to actualy interfere with the transmission of pain impulses from the brain to the injured tissue. The second laser also helps pain by working quickly on inflammation to reduce swelling while stimulating and increasing blood circulation in the injured area to promote and speed up healing.
  • Question: What conditions does it treat?
    • Answer: The MLS laser treats muscle, ligament, nerve, & tendon injuries, muscle spasms, sprains, strains, sport injuries, wound healing, and it helps to reduce arthritic joint pain. It is also beneficial in reducing pain and inflammation and promoting tissue healing after surgery. In all cases, regardless of condition, the MLS laser's intention is to speed up recovery time and return you to normal function sooner.
  • Question: How many treatments are needed?
    • Answer: Most patients experience positive results in 6 treatments. The number varies depending on whether or not your injury is acute or chronic. The average course is 7 to 10 treatments, again depending on the degree of injury. The laser treatment is cumulative, which means further treatments can lead to further healing and pain reduction.
  • Question: How often are treatment intervals?
    • Answer: Treatments are performed in Healthy Steps Shoe Store at our Grapevine location. They are scheduled 2-3 times per week for the first 6 sessions, and 1-2 times per week for any remaining treatments until completion. Since this therapy is cumulative (one treatment builds on the others), it is critical that once you start, you complete the course of treatment or symptoms are likely to recur. Surgical patient pre and post op treatments are scheduled with 1-2 treatments the week prior to surgery and the remaining treatments after sutures are removed.
  • Question: Who cannot receive MLS laser therapy?
    • Answer: Contraindications include: pregnancy and people who have conditions or are on medications that cause light sensitivity.
  • Question: Is it safe for children?
    • Answer: Yes! Sport and play injuries are common in children. MLS laser is a great, pain-free method to speed up the recovery process in active children.
  • Question: Does it hurt?
    • Answer: No, it is pain-free, has no down time, no side effects, no anesthesia, and no needles!
  • Question: How many treatments will I need?
    • Answer: Treatments are currently offered in packages of 6 sessions for acute pain and 10 sessions for chronic pain. 
  • Question: How much will it cost?
    • Answer:  Package prices vary depending on the type and number of sessions needed. Prices are listed on a form you will receive from your physician.
  • Question: When will I see my physician again?
    • Answer: You will typically follow up with your physician every 2 weeks in the clinic to reassess your condition and monitor progress.
