Why more Coasties are using MLS Laser Therapy

Cancer Rehabilitation & Lymphatic Solutions in Erina is the first company on the Central Coast to use MLS laser therapy treatment. MLS Laser Therapy helps to overcome the painful symptoms typical of musculoskeletal disorders, post-operative inflammation, side effects of cancer-related treatments. We use the OncoLaser™ techniques developed by Founder Kate Perkins so that patients can return to everyday activities faster.


Conditions that benefit from laser include:

  • Arthritis
  • Bursitis
  • Chronic and acute pain
  • Degenerative joint and disc disease
  • Foot, ankle, hip, and knee pain
  • Hand, wrist, and elbow pain
  • Lymphoedema
  • Muscle sprains, strains, and spasms
  • Neck, back and shoulder pain
  • Plantar fasciitis
  • Post-surgical pain and inflammation
  • Sciatica
  • Sports injuries
  • Surgical and radiation scar tissue
  • Tendonitis
  • TMJ dysfunction and craniofacial pain
  • Whiplash
  • Wound


Based on clinical research, MLS Laser Therapy also reduces the likelihood of developing radiation dermatitis during radiotherapy treatment. Kate Perkin’s clinical findings have also demonstrated minimal to nil development of radiation fibrosis or tissue thickening 12 months following radiotherapy treatment completion. Since adopting the use of the M6 Robotic MLS Laser in 2021, Kate Perkins has developed specific treatment techniques based on the clinical research, known as OncoLaser™, with the aim of educating more cancer rehab therapists.


What is MLS Laser Therapy?

Laser Therapy is a highly effective treatment for post-surgery recovery because it accelerates tissue healing, helps reduce scar tissue formation, decreases inflammation and residual swelling to help increase range of motion.

Multiwave Locked System Laser, short for MLS Laser, works by using two light wavelengths on the infrared to near-infrared light spectrum, synchronising pulsed and continuous light wavelengths simultaneously, to reduce inflammationreduce pain symptoms, reduce swelling, and accelerate the 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 reduce significantly. This results in faster recovery and the ability to begin physical therapy sooner or enhance the effectiveness of ongoing physical therapy.

There have been exceptional results with joint mobility improvement after surgery when laser therapy is used, particularly with knees, hips and shoulders. We encourage patients to come in for laser treatment as soon as they are up and about post-surgery.

We’ve had some patients who’ve waited to see us until they have pain at the scar site, persistent residual inflammation or swelling, or if their physical therapy is moving a lot slower than they would like. We encourage you to come in proactively, before you’re concerned. We can use laser to accelerate your rehab and improve your range of motion during your recovery process.

Scientific literature states, the application of laser therapy in the treatment of wounds accelerates wound healing time by influencing both inflammatory and proliferative phases and also stimulates a more harmonious and organised healing process, ultimately producing better aesthetic results in the scar tissue.
