How MLS Laser can treat sports injuries

Photobiomodulation (PMB) Therapy using MLS Laser can alleviate musculoskeletal pain, inflammation and swelling simultaneously, making it a highly attractive treatment option for sports injuries. It’s revolutionising treatments for athletes, as it can be used across pre-conditioning, injury management and rehabilitation.

MLS Laser has been scientifically proven as an effective treatment for sports injuries, and Cancer Rehabilitation & Lymphatic Solutions are proud to be the first on the Central Coast to adopt this technology.

How does MLS Laser work?

MLS Laser is often referred to as a cold laser treatment, as it uses light to stimulate the healing of muscles and joints instead of heat. It’s a painless option, without the burning sensation of traditional laser treatments.

“MLS laser therapy work works at a cellular level. It triggers light energy and modulates cellular metabolism that increases blood flow and supply of energy. It boosts ATP [energy] production in the cells and aids in lymphatic drainage.”Heal With Laser
