Why MLS Laser Therapy?
The MLS Laser Therapy is FDA cleared for pain reduction and is a non-invasive, powerful and pain-free alternative with long-lasting results. MLS Laser Therapy helps to provide immediate relief for those suffering from chronic pain and headaches and helps to reduce pain, inflammation and swelling caused by TMJ/TMD.
How does it work?
MLS Laser Therapy uses two types of light energy—one to treat pain and the other to treat inflammation. This energy works as a fuel source for cells, helping them to produce endorphins (the body’s natural painkillers) and anti-inflammatory properties to fight infection. The light also increases blood flow to stimulate healing.
