Laser Therapy



What is Laser Therapy?  
The MLS Therapy Laser was developed to overcome the limits of traditional Laser therapy. It uses an MLS pulse, which combines and synchronizes emission of continuous and pulsed Laser emissions with different infrared wavelengths. This patented control system synchronizes the two emissions and shortens the treatment period for treating pain, inflammation, and edema, and for repairing superficial lesions.

Conventional Laser therapy has been in use for more than 25 years.  More than 3,000 scientific publications have been written validating its effectiveness.  It has been demonstrated to be non-toxic and to have no side effects. 

 Indications for MLS Laser Therapy
 The most common MLS Laser Therapy indications are:           
     1. Arthritis (Degenerative Joint Disease)
     2. Back Pain (Intervertebral Disc Disease)
     3. Trauma (Skin, Muscle, Bone)
     4. Wounds (Trauma)
     5. Inflammatory conditions
          A. Acute or chronic otitis (Ear problems)
          B. Anal Gland inflammation
          C. Periodontitis (Gingivitis)
          D. Hot Spots
          E. Lick Granulomas
          F. Idiopathic Cystitis - (Bladder Inflammation)
          G. Sinusitis, Rhinitis (Nasal problems)
     6. Surgical Inflammation (Incisions, Growth removals, etc.)

Is MLS Therapy approved by the FDA?
Yes, the FDA has approved the use of MLS therapy and it is also patented via the US Patent Office.
What is the depth of penetration of the Harmony laser?
The depth of penetration will vary based on the animal but it is safe to assume that it will penetrate 4-5 cm on most animals. 
How many treatments are usually needed to get results?
Results can often been seen after the first treatment.  Most conditions have protocols that range from 6-10 treatments.  The treatments are cumulative and are delivered 2-3 times per week for 2-3 weeks.
How was MLS Therapy developed and tested?
MLS Therapy has been developed and tested following a strict course of biomedical and clinical research. The effectiveness of the combination of the emissions makingup the MLS pulse was initially tested in vitro on cellular cultures, then in vivo on animals, and finally by means of controlled clinical trials run by major state-of--the-art health organizations for treating traumatic and degenerative painful diseases.
