“I broke my ankle in 2008 and was in pain almost every day. I was trying to find a better fix than constant medication. Dr. Bondi told me that there was a laser treatment. I’m thinking, “snake oil.” But I decided it was worth the chance. The first treatment I limped in. I was virtually pain free when I walked out. It’s amazing; almost like magic – the swelling goes down, the pain goes away, and not just for an hour but days, weeks.”

MLS stands for Multi-Wave Locked System – the key phrase being “multi-wave.” That’s because, unlike other lasers, it uses multiple light wavelengths to produce simultaneous effects. In one fell swoop, it penetrates, blocks pain, and boosts new cell growth! No other laser can do all that, all at the same time.
The laser first targets the problem area with concentrated light beams that precisely penetrate the damaged cells, leaving the surrounding tissues completely unharmed. These wavelengths of light stimulate cell activity, encouraging a reduction of inflammation in the area and interrupting pain messages on their way to your brain, thus eliminating discomfort.
At the same time that pain is being blocked, cell repair and growth are given a boost. The laser light increases cell energy so it can take on nutrients faster. Circulation is stimulated, increased blood flow delivers nutrients at a faster rate, speeding up the healing process, helping you to recover more quickly.
This non-invasive treatment can help relieve many sources of pain, including arthritis, heel pain, neuromas, wounds, sports injuries/sprains, tendonitis, nerve issues, and more! It has a host of other benefits as well! There are no known side effects; it’s safe and pain-free, with patients reporting just a mild, warm sensation. Sessions take place in our office, and typically last less than 10 minutes. The number of sessions you’ll need depends upon your condition and severity of your symptoms or injury. In most cases, however, noticeable results are achieved within 2-3 visits. Keep in mind that the effects of MLS are cumulative so it’s important to complete the treatment plan provided so as not to allow symptoms to reoccur.

“I’ve had trouble with sesamoiditis since 2012. The little bones at the ball of my foot that are inside the tendon became inflamed, and it kept getting worse and worse. Every step I take I step on them again, and they get more inflamed. Then I’m spending six weeks in a boot. I was at the point where I couldn’t take anymore. What did I have to lose? And, the laser was pretty remarkable because I could tell right away it was working. It helped with the pain, and it accelerated the healing. Also, the price is very reasonable compared to just about anything I could do…surgery, another round of physical therapy. The laser certainly helped in my situation when I was afraid there was going to be nothing.”
