The Healing Power of Lasers


Through science fiction and movies, the general public has come to think of lasers as weapons used to blast spaceships and slice through metal. However, at Westfield Foot and Ankle, we’ve been using lasers for much more constructive purposes. Multiwave Locked System (MLS) Laser Therapy is non-invasive alternative to inflammation treatments like injections and pain medications that can further interrupt your life and mobility. In this blog, we’ll talk about how MLS Laser Therapy works and what it can treat.  

How Does it Work?

A lot of foot and ankle pain is caused by inflammation. The goal of MLS Laser Therapy is to reduce swelling at the cellular level. At Westfield Foot and Ankle, we have a new MLS Laser Therapy machine that transmits energy to your foot in the form of synchronized light wavelengths. These wavelengths stimulate the cells and create reactions in your body that will treat inflammation and speed up your healing process. Many experts believe that this treatment is superior to other inflammation treatments, such as cortisone injections, because it addresses the individual cells causing your foot pain rather than simply reducing the symptoms of your foot pain.

MLS Laser Therapy for Diabetic Patients

MLS Laser Therapy has shown proven results in treating inflammation and pain in common foot injuries like plantar fasciitis, Achilles tendonitis, sprained ankles, and more. Additionally, MLS Laser Therapy can also be especially helpful to patients that have been diagnosed with diabetes. Many foot complications caused by diabetes are linked to poor blood circulation to the extremities. One of the many benefits of MLS Laser Therapy is that it can help improve blood circulation and, therefore, prevent and treat complications caused by diabetes such as foot ulcers, neuropathy, and gout.
