MLS® Laser Therapy — The standard of care for non-invasive, non-pharmaceutical, risk-free treatment of pain.
Laser therapy uses light to accelerate the body’s natural healing process. The laser beam is moved over the skin so that the light energy (photons) penetrates the tissue where it interacts with various molecules (chromophores) that cause different biological effects.

The MLS® Laser Therapy offered by the podiatrists at Merritt Island Foot & Ankle is a treatment protocol recommended to those with the following conditions:
Anti-Inflammatory Benefits: MLS® Laser Therapy causes vasodilation which has an anti-edema effect. It also activates the lymphatic drainage system which drains swollen areas. As a result, there is a reduction in swelling caused by bruising or inflammation.
Analgesic Benefits: MLS® Laser Therapy has a beneficial effect on nerve cells. It blocks pain transmitted by these cells to the brain, which decreases nerve sensitivity. Also, due to the decreased inflammation, there is less edema and less pain. Another pain-blocking mechanism involves the production of high levels of pain killing chemicals such as endorphins and enkephalin from the brain and adrenal gland.
Accelerated Tissue Repair and Cell Growth: Photons of light from MLS® Lasers penetrate deeply into tissue and accelerate cellular reproduction and growth. The laser light increases the energy available to the cell so that the cell can take on nutrients faster and get rid of waste products. As a result of exposure to laser light, damaged cells are repaired faster.
Improved Vascular Activity: Laser light will significantly increase the formation of new capillaries in damaged tissue which speeds up the healing process, closes wounds quickly and reduces scar tissue. Additional benefits include acceleration of angiogenesis, which causes temporary vasodilation and increase in the diameter of blood vessels.
Increased Metabolic Activity: MLS® Laser Therapy creates higher outputs of specific enzymes, greater oxygen and food particle loads for blood cells.
Patients who have experienced laser therapy treatment have said they feel hardly anything. There is no burning, warmth, pins and needles feeling, or any other pain associated with the treatment. People who have been treated say they started to feel their symptoms relieved in as few as three treatment sessions.
