The Cutting Edge MLS Laser is the latest technology for patient care in the United States.  This laser is safe, has no side effects, reduces pain and inflammation and helps patients recover quicker from injuries and surgery.  The following are frequently asked questions along with a list of many of the conditions or ailments the laser can help to relieve.

What Is Laser Therapy?     Laser therapy uses specific wavelengths of light to treat painful and debilitating conditions.

How Does It Work?      Light energy enters damaged cells and stimulates their inter-cellular activity.  This reduces pain in the area and speeds recovery of the cells.  Once the cells recover, the process is complete.

What Can I Expect During TheTreatment?      Laser therapy is a painless treatment that usually lasts 10.  You may experience a comfortable or warm sensation at the point of application.

What Can I Expect After The Treatment?         70% of the patients see positive results after 1 - 3 treatments.  Swelling can be reduced along with relief from pain.  Chronic conditions can be controlled with regular "maintence" treatments.  

What Are The Commonly Treated Conditions?

  • Tendon & LIgament Injuries  
  • Neuroma Condition     
  • Achilles Tendinitis
  • Heel Pain/Plantar Fasciitis
  • Soft Tissue Injuries
  • Muscle Strains & Tears
  • Joint & Muscle Pain
  • Post Surgical Healing
  • Generalized Foot & Ankle Pain

How Much Treatment Do I Need?        For most conditions, a series of 6 treatments are recommended.  For chronic conditions, studies have shown that approximately 10 visits are optimal.  We schedule your visits about 1 - 2 days in between as the effects of the laser are cumulative and build up with each treatment.   Once your initial course of treatment is complete, we recommend monthly or as needed "maintence" treatments to keep your pain and condition under control. 

What Does The Laser Treatment Cost?       Health insurance plans do not cover the cost of the laser treatments, however, your HSA or Flexible Spendng Account may cover the fee.  The good news is that the laser treatments are reasonable in cost and are $60.00 per individual treatment.  A pre-paid package of 6 treatments is $300.00.  Bilateral treatments start at $75.00 per treatment.  Payment is due at the time of service and we accept Visa, Mastercard, Discover Card, check or cash.
