MLS Laser Therapy
Webster Orthopedics is pleased to introduce MLS Laser Therapy at our San Ramon clinic location. MLS Laser Therapy is quickly becoming the standard of care for alleviating pain, reducing inflammation, and speeding recovery. The MLS laser was approved by the FDA in 2002. It has been proven safe with virtually no side effects.
Laser therapy uses light to favor and accelerate the body’s natural healing process. The laser beam is painlessly moved over the skin so that the light energy penetrates the tissues where it interacts with various molecules that cause different biological effects including: increased circulation, increased supply of oxygen and nutrients, re-absorption of edemas, reactivation of microcirculation, production of an extracellular matrix (important in tissue repair and regeneration), reduction in scar tissue, and pain reduction.
Laser therapy treatments are non-invasive, painless, and last approximately 10 minutes. Within only a few visits 70% of patients could expect to see a positive result, such as decreased swelling or decreased pain. Chronic conditions can be controlled with regular treatments. Acute conditions subside quickly.
For most conditions a series of 6-7 treatments are recommended. For chronic conditions, studies show approximately 10 visits to be optimal. Treatment sessions are scheduled with 1-3 days in between, as the effects of the laser are cumulative and increase with each treatment.
For more information please see the below brochures:
As an introductory rate, a six session treatment package is only $360. Payment for your laser package is collected at your first visit. You may use cash, credit card, or check.
