When a physical condition or injury affects mobility or quality of life, there is one goal: A rapid return to every-day activities.

Bluegrass Foot Center is proud to be on the medical technological forefront by offering MLS Laser Therapy. We have invested in the very best technology as a key component of our continuing quest to offer you the finest in health care.

Laser therapy has been cleared by the FDA and proven successful as evidenced by extensive and credible studies conducted in our country’s finest institutions, including Harvard University.

MLS Laser Therapy uses specific wavelengths of light that have a strong anti-inflammatory, anti-edema effect on tissues that are exposed to the laser. Painful conditions accompanied by swelling or inflammation benefit from this technology.

If you are suffering with pain and are interested in alternative therapies to promote faster healing, please schedule a consultation today.

MLS Laser works in 3 main ways, harmlessly increasing activity of cells of your body.
This specifically includes:

  • Direct transfer of energy to the biological sublayers (endogenous or exogenic chromophores).
  • Enzymatic activation
  • Increase in ATP production
  • Modulation of cellular metabolism
  • Effect on pain perception threshold
  • Photothermic interaction is based on the conversion of option radiation into thermal energy which, at a microscopic level, occurs through the inelastic encounter between excited molecules following the absorption of photons.
  • Increase in circulation
  • Increased supply of oxygen and nutrients
  • The absorption of energy involves the formation of mechanical waves.
  • Production of an extracellular matrix (important in tissue repair & regeneration)
  • Acceleration of lymphatic peristalsis
  • Re-absorption of edemas
  • Reactivation of microcirculation

This process can have SIGNIFICANT benefits to multiple problems including:
MLS therapy can dramatically improve pain from

  • arthritis
  • tendon pain or tendonitis
  • neuropathy including diabetic neuropathy
  • nerve pain
  • chronic pain conditions
  • degenerative disc disease pain
  • chronic back pain
  • post surgical pain
  • patients with chronic pain conditions
  • chronic neck pain
  • shoulder pain and rotator cuff problems
  • chronic knee pain and mensicus problems
  • hip pain and bursitis
  • sciatica
  • chronic swelling
  • plantar fasciitis
  • inflammation of joints

Jeff G- 53yo runner
“I had part of my lateral meniscus of my knee removed 6 years ago. My medial meniscus had been hurting, and I was looking as surgery as my only option. I was told once the entire meniscus is gone, studies have shown its only between 5-10 years before the joint wears out to the point of having to have a joint replacement. I decided to try MLS laser, and I’m happy to say, with periodic treatments, my pain is completely gone, I’ve been able to avoid any more surgery, and I’ve bought myself years having to face any possibility of a knee replacement.”

Karen M- 64yo grandmother
“My hip has been hurting for years. It had increased in severity to the point I could not walk without a cane. My son was getting married and I didn’t want to limp or have to use a cane to walk down the aisle. After 3 MLS laser treatments, I was able to put the cane away, and gratefully walked my son down the aisle with no help or pain whatsoever. So thankful I found something so simple and effective.”

Sean L- 48yo
“I ruptured my achilles tendon. Surgery was performed, however, the incision area on the back of my heel would not completely heal. I spent months at one of the wound centers, and it still would not close. I decided to try MLS laser, and to my amazement, my wound finally closed, allowing me to shower again, resume a regular shoe, and move on with life. There is no telling what might have happened had I not used MLS laser on my nonhealing heel wound.”
