If you're suffering from chronic pain, there are a variety of treatments you can try. But did you know that laser technology is an option now? At TruWell, we've brought in the new M6 MLS® therapy laser from Cutting Edge Laser Technologies to give our patients more choices in their treatment plans. So let's take a look at what this incredible technology has to offer.
How Can a Laser Manage Pain?
When many think of lasers, their minds likely go to science fiction or James Bond tied to a table or correcting their vision. MLS® stands for "multi-wave locked system" and is sometimes called "cold laser therapy" in specific cases. This system uses a pair of light wavelengths that work in a wide range, allowing it to penetrate the body in a non-invasive way and stimulate the body's natural healing process. It causes a metabolic reaction in the body's cells, proven to relieve pain and reduce inflammation in affected areas. It's like a wake-up call to your cells that aren't working at peak condition for one reason or another.
What Is the M6?
Cutting Edge created their M6 to utilize a unique multi-target functioning. The laser function is largely robotized, meaning it can perform quick, rapid treatment at a broad scale without needing constant adjustment from an operator, producing near-instantaneous results. While the technology and the research and findings around its treatments are still developing, it is FDA-approved and is becoming excellent pain management and treatment alternative.
What Can Laser Therapy Treat for Me?
If you're suffering from ongoing musculoskeletal pain, you may want to consult your physician or the team at TruWell about MLS® laser therapy. To name a few, it can treat conditions like:
- Muscle sprains or strain
- Spinal compression
- A slipped or bulging disc
- Arthritis or other joint issues
- Soft tissue damage
Most conditions vary in treatment level, with some clearing up after one session while others require repeated exposure. Regardless of duration, there are nearly zero side effects to MLS® treatments, and, though it's a new tech, it is boasting promising results in patients.
