What Happens During MLS Laser Therapy?

At The Bio Mechanix, MLS Laser Therapy sessions typically last 10 to 15 minutes. You may experience a gentle warmth during the treatment, but it should not be painful. The number of sessions needed depends on the severity of your condition, and our medical professionals will create a personalized plan to determine the frequency of sessions and the duration of the treatment.

How Long Will it Take to Feel Better?

Patients at The Bio Mechanix often start feeling improvement after just 1 to 3 sessions of MLS Laser Therapy, with some experiencing relief immediately after the first treatment. Continued sessions lead to progressive improvement, and your progress will be regularly assessed during appointments to make any necessary adjustments. For long-term issues, significant improvements may be observed after up to 6 sessions. Completing the entire treatment plan is crucial for lasting relief and optimal benefits from MLS Laser Therapy.

How Long Do MLS Laser Therapy Results Last?

MLS Laser Therapy at The Bio Mechanix focuses on healing the body rather than providing temporary symptom relief. The goal is to facilitate full recovery, ensuring that feeling better translates to actual improvement. The results are intended to be long-lasting, addressing the root cause of the issue instead of offering a temporary fix. This approach promotes sustained benefits, enhancing overall health and quality of life.

How Many Treatments Will I Need?

Laser therapy’s cumulative nature means that each treatment builds upon the effects of the previous one. At The Bio Mechanix, we strive to see patients regularly to maintain and enhance the treatment effects. The required number of treatments varies based on individual differences, with most patients needing between 4-15 sessions, depending on the condition and their body’s response. Typically, an initial course of 6 sessions is scheduled, carried out at a rate of 2 sessions per week. Acute conditions may require fewer treatments, while chronic issues may necessitate more.

Are There Any Side Effects?

Occasionally, the body may temporarily experience increased inflammation in response to laser treatment, typically lasting 24-48 hours. While rare, this reaction indicates that cellular changes have occurred, and a healing process is underway. Patients often feel better after this rebound response. If this occurs, please inform your clinician, who can adjust the machine settings for your next treatment.

How Quickly Will It Work?

At The Bio Mechanix, we implement a 3/2/1 or 2/2/2 treatment schedule. Many patients begin to notice improvements within the first three sessions. It’s important to remember that laser therapy is cumulative, and the best results are typically observed as the treatment course progresses. Additionally, adhering to other elements of your treatment plan, such as adjustments, exercises, acupuncture, or activity modification, is crucial for maximizing the benefits of MLS Laser Therapy.
