MLS® Laser Therapy
MLS laser therapy is a non-invasive treatment option for peripheral neuropathy. This treatment method may help to improve circulation, stimulate functional nerve cell components and reduce inflammation. Poor blood circulation is one of the most common reasons people develop this condition. Laser therapy may help to stimulate better blood flow so that the peripheral nerves are getting the oxygen and nutrients that they need to be healthy.
Increasing the oxygen and nutrients that are delivered to peripheral nerves that are already damaged could help them to experience optimized functionality and repair. As a result, the symptoms you experience because of the damage would be reduced.
MLS laser therapy has an impressive efficacy rate of 85 to 90 percent when it comes to alleviating inflammation and pain. There are no known negative side effects, and the procedure itself is not painful. It helps to improve nerve function and vascular activity, serves as an analgesic to reduce pain, and helps to calm the inflammation associated with peripheral neuropathy.
