MLS Laser Therapy

MLS Laser Therapy is a non-invasive, safe, and effective treatment modality where light is used to relieve pain, reduce inflammation, and promote wound healing and soft tissue repair. Our laser is the only fully robotic, dual-wave locked laser therapy system on the market. The patented M6 device simultaneously delivers two wavelengths of laser light therapy: one for pain and another for inflammation. This means deeper penetration with no heat produced, allowing faster healing with no known side effects. It has been cleared by the FDA since 2009.

85-90% of patients will notice improvement within 1-3 treatments. Most conditions respond very well within 6-10 treatments. Chronic pain and difficult conditions like neuropathy may require additional care. Some of the most commonly treated conditions include:

  • Chronic neck, back, and joint pain
  • Knee pain
  • Shoulder pain
  • Pain due to arthritis
  • Neuropathy
  • Sprain/strain injuries
  • Plantar fasciitis


The laser is fully robotic and placed 8 inches above the skin allowing the healing energy to penetrate tissue, where it interacts with various intracellular biomolecules resulting in the restoration of normal cell function. This also enhances the body’s natural healing processes. In essence, light energy is converted into biochemical energy. Think of this like photosynthesis in plants.

The result is normal cell functions are restored. The process results in a disappearance of symptoms and increases the speed at which your body heals. This is possible because we are using the newest and most powerful laser technology available to help our patients live a pain free life.


Frequently Asked Questions


What does laser therapy have over other forms of therapy? It does not require the use of drugs or surgery, there are no known side effects, and it is quick/convenient. Studies have shown that it is equal to or more effective than other forms of physical therapy. These studies were performed at many prestigious institutions including Harvard University.

Does it hurt? What does the treatment feel like? There is little or no sensation during treatment. There is no pain associated during laser application. Laser treatment is relaxing, and some people even fall asleep.

How long does the treatment take?  The typical course of treatment is 10 to 15 minutes, depending on the size of the area being treated. Treatments are typically received 2 to 3 times a week. Treatment plans are determined on an individual basis.

How many treatments does it take? This depends on the nature of the condition being treated. The typical treatment protocol is between 6 and 12 visits. Conditions such as severe arthritis may require ongoing periodic care to control pain.

How long before results are felt? You may feel improvement in your condition (usually pain reduction) after the 1 to 3 treatments. For some more chronic conditions it may take up to 6 visits to feel the benefits of laser therapy. Not everyone responds to laser therapy and results cannot be guaranteed.

Are the results long lasting? MLS Laser Therapy is about healing. It's not about masking or covering up a condition. When you feel better from this therapy... it's because you are better. Therefore, results have been found to be quite long lasting. 

Can it be used in conjunction with other forms of treatment? Yes, MLS Laser Therapy is sometimes more effective when combined with other forms of therapy, including physical therapy, podiatric care, massage, soft tissue mobilization, electrotherapy, and following surgery.

How do I know if laser therapy is right for me? We will evaluate your condition and perform a complete laser therapy examination to determine if you are a candidate for this procedure. Call us to schedule your evaluation or a consultation with one of the doctors. Consultations are always at no cost to the patient.

Can laser therapy be used over medical implants or over metal? Yes, laser therapy is a light treatment. No heating is involved with the surgical or metal implants. It can be used safely with no side effects. It is extremely effective for post-operative wound healing. Many foot and ankle post-surgical patients see us for care.

Is MLS Laser treatment covered by insurance? While our laser is FDA cleared, it is too new for insurance companies to cover. The cost of treatment will be discussed at your free consultation.

Low Level Light Therapy

Low Level Light Therapy (LLLT) was developed by NASA and the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA) in the 1990s to combat the effects of a zero gravity environment. NASA research proved benefits for cellular healing, mitochondrial function, and tissue repair. The benefits of LED light treatment have been verified in over 5,600 studies. At Integrated Chiropractic & Acupuncture we use the Celluma Pro Low Level Light Panel. The Celluma Pro provides all three therapeutic wavelengths of light: 465nm, 640nm, and 880nm.

What Conditions Can We Treat?

The Celluma Pro has 8 FDA clearances for:

  • Arthritis
  • Muscle spasm
  • Muscle & joint pain
  • Muscle tissue tension
  • Diminished local blood circulation
  • Inflammatory acne vulgaris
  • Skin rejuvenation

The effects of LED light therapy include:

  • Increased microcirculation
  • Decreased inflammation & pain
  • Improvement of sports injuries/CTS
  • Pain reduction in arthritis and neuropathies
  • Accelerated tissue repair

How Does It Work?

Each wavelength of light stimulates certain processes within the cells. The Celluma Pro’s mechanism of action for pain occurs when the 880nm near-infrared wavelength:

  • Decreases the inflammatory response
  • Regulates prostaglandins (chemicals that cause pain)
  • Alters nerve sensitivity

This combination results in pain reduction while the 640nm wavelength assists in tissue repair and formation of new collagen. The 465nm light is primarily for the treatment of acne, facial rejuvenation, and skin elasticity. We are very excited about this modality because it not only decreases pain; it accelerates the healing process, helping you achieve recovery faster!
