MLS Laser Therapy – Q & A with Kate Perkins
Q. What is MLS laser therapy?
A. MLS Laser Therapy helps to overcome the painful symptoms typical of musculoskeletal disorders, post operative inflammation, side effects of cancer related treatments and more so that patients can return to everyday activities faster.
Why did you introduce the laser into the clinic?
The new technology, backed by 30 years of research, enables us to open services to a wider patient population including, post orthopaedic surgeries, accelerating wound healing and surgical sites, and enhance our current treatment cancer rehab and lymphoedema practices.
Q. How does it work?
A. MLS Laser uses two light wavelengths, synchronising pulsed l and continuous light wavelengths to reduce inflammation, reduce pain symptoms, reduce swelling, and accelerate healing of wounds and surgical sites.
MLS Laser Therapy is a medical breakthrough therapeutic device with unparalleled applications and treatment outcomes. The laser works by converting light into biochemical energy, resulting in normal cell function, which causes symptoms (PAIN) to disappear.
The primary biological action of laser results from stimulation of cellular transport mechanisms in the mitochondria, cell membranes and epithelial tissues. This action causes the release of vasodilating chemicals, the stimulation of DNA and RNA (building blocks) synthesis, an increase in enzyme production, an increase of superdioxide dismutase activity, normalisation of tissue Ph and increased ATP production (healing of the cells from the inside).
Q. What conditions can benefit from laser?
