Laser Therapy Q & A

What is laser therapy?

Laser therapy is a noninvasive approach to treating chronic pain and other conditions. Pain Specialists of Cincinnati uses multiwave locked system (MLS) laser therapy, which extensive research studies have shown is successful in treating a variety of musculoskeletal disorders.

MLS laser therapy uses specific light wavelengths that have a powerful anti-inflammatory effect and reduce swelling (edema) in tissues exposed to the laser. Photons of laser energy deeply penetrate the tissue and speed up the growth and reproduction of healthy cells.

After having MLS laser therapy at Pain Specialists of Cincinnati, cells in your tendons, muscles, and ligaments repair themselves more quickly. As the inflammation in your soft tissues subsides, pain quickly eases off as well. 

Laser therapy has no known side effects and is a safe, effective form of treatment for chronic pain conditions.

What other therapies use light energy?

Red light or infrared therapy is a simple, noninvasive treatment that also uses light energy, but in a slightly different way to laser therapy.

Red light therapy delivers concentrated light to your skin and the cells within, giving the mitochondria in your cells a boost of the natural light they need to create energy and power your body.

Red light therapy at Pain Specialists of Cincinnati is quick, easy, and painless. All you do is sit or stand in the infrared light for 5-15 minutes. It works in the same way as the wavelengths of light your body obtains naturally, but there's no heat and you don't need to wait for sunny weather.

Furthermore, there's no need to worry about potentially dangerous ultraviolet (UV) rays, which are the cause of sun damage to your skin. Red light therapy has undergone extensive testing and study in thousands of peer-reviewed clinical research papers from around the world.

What conditions can laser therapy and red light therapy treat?

Laser therapy and red light therapy produce positive results for pain and inflammation relief from a variety of conditions, and help with:

  • Fibromyalgia
