Occasional aches and pains are good; healthy even. They’re an important part of your body’s natural alarm system, and fortunately, they typically go away once you’ve dealt with what’s causing them.
However, when your pain lasts for days, weeks, and months, it officially becomes chronic — and chronic pain can quickly become debilitating. What’s worse, finding relief from your symptoms can be just as frustrating as the pain itself. Until now.
Gone are the days of just getting by with traditional pain management methods. MLS Therapy has revolutionized the way we treat chronic pain.
Through this advanced technology, we harness the power of medical-grade light energy to target damaged cells, stimulate cellular activity, encourage healing, reduce inflammation, and so much more.
What does that mean for you? It means you finally have an answer to chronic pain.
Dr. Kelly Geoghan is proud to offer a brand new way of dealing with your lingering aches and pains. Here are just three of the main types of chronic pain we can treat with MLS Laser Therapy at our Lutherville, Maryland office.
When it comes to chronic pain, few conditions are more notorious than arthritis. There are over 100 types of arthritis, but regardless of which one you have, the result is the same: pain, swelling, and stiffness.
In the past, you may have spun your wheels trying to manage your symptoms with creams, or worse, been faced with the possibility of surgery. But not anymore.
MLS Laser Therapy offers a safe, non-invasive way to help your body heal naturally, so you feel less pain.
From your central nervous system (your brain and spinal cord) springs a complex network of peripheral nerves that extend all over your body. These nerves help you sense the world around you by facilitating communication between your brain and your body.
When your peripheral nerves are damaged, whether by an injury, infection, or some other condition, you have what’s called peripheral neuropathy. In addition to chronic pain, peripheral neuropathy can trigger a wide range of symptoms, including numbness, tingling, cramping, and extreme sensitivity.
MLS Laser Therapy works to reverse the damage of neuropathy by decreasing inflammation and stimulating your body’s healing process.
You might think that injury pain goes away once you’ve healed, but sometimes your symptoms can linger. Some of the injuries we see cause chronic pain include plantar fasciitis, Achilles tendonitis, stress fractures, nerve entrapment, neuromas, Haglund’s deformity, bursitis, and tarsal tunnel syndrome.
Each of these conditions, whether they impact your joints, nerves, or soft tissues, responds well to MLS Laser Therapy.
Convinced MLS Laser Therapy can help you? Then let’s dive into what actually happens during your session.
To begin, we have you recline comfortably in a chair and position you so you’re both relaxed and in the optimal position for treatment. Once we power the machine on, you can expect your session to last around 10 minutes. Not only is MLS Laser Therapy efficient, but it’s virtually painless, as well.
Most of our patients see the best results after they’ve had a few treatments. Depending on your needs, you could benefit from 3-12 sessions. Regardless, you should notice almost immediate pain relief.
But we don’t stop there. Dr. Geoghan combines the power of MLS Laser Therapy with other treatments, therapies, and even lifestyle counseling to make sure we address your chronic pain from as many angles as possible.
When you’re ready to see if MLS Laser Therapy is right for you, you can schedule a consultation online or over the phone.
