New Therapeutic Laser for the Quad Cities

When you have foot, ankle or toe pain, we now have a new tool to reduce pain and swelling. We’re the first in the Quad Cities to introduce MLS Laser Therapy, a revolutionary new way to treat inflammation, fluid retention and ulcers and the pain that goes with these conditions.

I’ve looked into it, and research has shown MLS therapy to be effective in treating a wide range of foot, toe and ankle pain and swelling. This noninvasive therapy can be administered during your office visit to manage:

  • ·        Arthritis
  • ·        Foot and ankle sprains
  • ·        Inflammation and edema
  • ·        Plantar fasciitis
  • ·        Tendonitis
  • ·        Other issues, from your ankles to your toes

So, whether you have a run-of-the-mill sprain or a chronic condition causing your feet to hurt, we can consider the MLS Laser for resolution and healing.

Without getting too technical, this new tool combines several types of laser pulses to improve circulation, which reduces swelling. Reducing swelling typically reduces pain. The therapy also speeds healing of muscle tissue and wounds.

We’re excited to have this new resource to help all patients manage pain and heal faster. If you experience any pain, swelling or sores on your feet, call me as soon as you can. When you come in for your appointment, I’ll look at finding the most effective, gentle way to treat your condition.
