MLS Laser Therapy from our Charleston Chiropractor
As medical technology continues to advance and evolve, treatments that once would have seemed like science fiction have now become science fact. The use of laser energy to facilitate healing and relieve pain is a perfect example -- and even this technology continues to be refined. Here at Advanced Spinal Care, we stay ahead of the curve by offering state-of-the-art MLS Class 4 laser therapy for treatment of a wide range of conditions.
Understanding Laser Therapy
You'll sometimes hear laser therapy referred to as LLLT (low-level laser therapy) or "cold" laser therapy (because the laser doesn't cut like a high-powered surgical laser). This type of focused, amplified light is emitted at a frequency that allows it to penetrate tissues without causing discomfort or damage. As the laser reaches underlying tissues, its energy stimulates cells to produce more of a substance called adenosine triphosphate, or ATP. This extra ATP then gives cells the "fuel" they need to repair themselves more quickly and effectively.
Laser therapy also stimulates the circulation at the treatment site, allowing blood and lymph to flow more freely and helping tissue release excess fluid and inflammatory by-products. These properties make laser therapy a remarkable drug-free method of pain management and injury rehabilitation.
Conditions Helped by MLS Laser Therapy
Our chiropractor, Dr. Shariff, can employ laser therapy as part of your personalized holistic care program. This modality can help with such conditions as:
- Sprains and strains
- Arthritis pain
- Carpal tunnel syndrome
A laser therapy session is relatively brief, totally painless and often quite relaxing; this form of care can also be scheduled as frequently as needed. We're proud to offer the MLS (Multiwave Locked System) Class 4 laser. The Class 4 laser not only penetrates more deeply than older-style Class 3 lasers, but it also covers a larger treatment area.
The MLS system goes even further by providing two different wavelengths of energy, giving us the ultimate in control over your dosage strength and effectiveness. Whether you're in need of chronic pain management, acute pain relief or healing of damaged tissues, the MLS Class 4 laser makes a powerful complement to the chiropractic care, trigger point dry needling, and other healing services we provide at our Charleston SC clinic.
