MLS Laser Therapy applied to lower backAt Ritchie Chiropractic & Wellness, we love working with patients to help them get out of pain and back to enjoying the things they love. We’re committed to bringing patients the latest advancements in non-invasive technology, which is why we’re thrilled to now offer sessions with the revolutionary MLS Laser System.

What Is It?

MLS Laser therapy is a cutting-edge, non-invasive, and highly effective treatment modality that uses light to alleviate pain, reduce inflammation, and promote wound healing and soft tissue repair. The laser is the only fully robotic, multi-wave locked system on the market, and it has been cleared by the FDA since 2009.

Unlike other pain relief treatments, MLS Laser therapy offers unparalleled applications and outcomes. It works by converting light into biochemical energy, which stimulates cellular transport mechanisms in the mitochondria, cell membranes, and epithelial tissues. This action results in the release of vasodilating chemicals, an increase in enzyme production, normalization of tissue pH, and increased ATP production. The result is the restoration of normal cell function, which causes symptoms such as pain to disappear.

How it Works

The MLS Laser therapy system penetrates tissue deeply, providing faster healing with no heat produced and no known side effects. The therapy is fully robotic, and the laser is placed 8 inches above the skin to allow the healing energy to penetrate tissue, where it interacts with various intracellular bio-molecules. This process enhances the body’s natural healing processes, resulting in a disappearance of symptoms and an increase in the speed at which your body heals.

The system provides tissue regeneration and cellular stimulation, making it possible for our patients to live a pain-free life. It is an excellent option for people dealing with musculoskeletal issues such as back pain, neck pain, knee problems, tennis/golfer’s elbow, nerve pain, shoulder problems, arthritic joints, and pain and inflammation over surgical implants (hip/knee).

Others enjoy the following benefits from the therapy:

  • Anti-inflammatory
  • Analgesic
  • Accelerated tissue repair and cell growth

  • Reduces fibrous tissue formation

Frequently Asked Questions

What are the benefits of laser therapy over other forms of therapy?

Laser therapy doesn’t require drugs or surgery, there are no known side effects, and it’s a fast and convenient modality. According to various studies, laser therapy is equal to or more effective than other types of physical therapy. These studies were performed at many prestigious institutions, including Harvard University.

What does it feel like? Is it painful?

There is little or no sensation during treatment, and the laser application is painless. Because laser treatment is relaxing, some people fall asleep during their session.

How long is a session?

Typically, treatment takes 10 to 15 minutes, depending on the size of the area being treated.

How many treatments will I need?

It depends on your particular condition, and treatment plans are determined individually. The typical treatment protocol is between 6 and 12 visits, and we usually recommend patients have treatment 2 to 3 times a week. If you have a chronic condition, such as severe arthritis, you may need ongoing periodic care to manage your pain.

How long before I experience results?

You may feel some improvement in your condition (typically pain reduction) after just 1 to 3 treatments. For some more chronic conditions, it may take up to 6 visits to feel the benefits of laser therapy. Not everyone responds to laser therapy, and we cannot guarantee results.

Are the results long lasting?

Because MLS Laser Therapy is about healing versus masking symptoms, when you feel better after getting the therapy, it’s because you are better. So, yes, results have been found to be long lasting.

Can the therapy be used in conjunction with other forms of treatment?

Yes, laser therapy is sometimes more effective when combined with other types of therapy, including PT, chiropractic, massage, soft tissue mobilization, electrotherapy, and after surgery.

How do I know if laser therapy is right for me?

First, we will evaluate your condition and perform a thorough laser therapy examination to determine if you are a candidate. Call us to schedule your evaluation or free consultation with one of the doctors.

Can laser therapy be used over metal or medical implants?
