What your podiatrist in Bloomington wants you to know
Laser technology is at the forefront of modern medicine and is well-recognized as a therapeutic treatment for a number of medical conditions. It is also an effective method of treating many foot and ankle problems. A state-of-the-art laser system known as multi-wave lock system or MLS is the treatment-of-choice to relieve pain and help heal these conditions:
- Arthritis in your toes, feet or ankles
- Diabetic neuropathy
- Diabetic ulcers or open wounds
- Muscle strain or sprains
- Torn or stretched ligaments
- Tendonitis in your feet or ankles
- Plantar fasciitis or heel pain
- Foot or ankle surgery pain
Dr. Gerald Paul at McLean County Foot & Ankle in Bloomington, IL, wants to share the facts about MLS, the revolutionary laser therapy for your feet and ankles.
The MLS system uses two different wavelengths which cause both an anti-inflammatory and an analgesic response. They work together to reduce swelling, promote healing and provide pain relief.
MLS laser therapy is different from other laser systems because it has a wider range and is able to penetrate deeper into your tissue, increasing circulation to the affected area. More oxygen and increased blood flow promotes increased cell repair and healing.
When you choose MLS laser therapy, you have chosen a non-invasive pain management and healing treatment. It has no side effects and no downtime, allowing you to resume your daily schedule immediately after treatment.
The number of treatments you need varies based on the area and condition being treated and your individual characteristics. Common treatment plans may include one treatment each week for six weeks, or several treatments each week for a shorter time period. Dr. Paul will design a customized treatment plan to fit your needs and your schedule.
If you suffer from pain associated with foot or ankle problems, you don’t have to just put up with it. The MLS laser therapy system can help you regain your mobility and live your life without pain.
