What Is MLS Laser Therapy?

MLS Laser Therapy is an advanced laser technology that works to eliminate pain and reduce inflammation in the foot and ankle without the use of painful injections or potentially habit forming drugs. There are no known side-effects.

mls laser How Does Cold Laser Therapy Work?

Cold Laser Therapy changes light into energy. When this energy penetrates deep into your tissue it increases the blood supply and circulation. As a result, your tissue can heal itself at the cellular level.

How Does It Do This?

The MLS laser uses dual wavelengths of infrared light to increase penetration into your tissue. One laser is pulsed and treats pain. The other laser is continuous and treats inflammation. Combined, these lasers offer a powerful treatment solution for stubborn foot and ankle problems.

How Many Treatments Will I Need?

Laser therapy is painless and takes just 15 minutes. Dr. Berg will evaluate your medical condition to determine how many treatments are needed for pain relief, healing, and a return to regular activities. Although many patients begin to have pain relief after a few visits, patients will need to receive at least six treatments for complete healing. 

Are the Results Long Lasting?

MLS Laser Therapy is about healing. With MLS Laser Therapy, we are not masking or covering up a condition, but treating the root of your pain and inflammation. As a result many patients have seen long-term results.

Can It Be Used in Conjunction with Other Forms of Treatment?

Yes, MLS Laser Therapy can be used in conjunction with other treatment modalities. For example, a patient with plantar fasciitis may receive laser therapy for pain reduction and inflammation. Additional modalities may include taping, air heel, Achilles splint, orthotics, and/or physical therapy.

Benefits of MLS Laser Therapy:

  • Rapidly reduces pain
  • Strong anti-inflammatory
  • Improves blood circulation


Why choose MLS Laser Therapy?

MLS Laser Therapy does not require the use of drugs or surgery, there are no known side effects, and it is quick and convenient. According to studies performed by top academic institutions, such as Harvard University, laser therapy is equal to or more effective than other forms of therapy.

Will the treatment hurt?

No, laser therapy does not hurt. There is little or no sensation during treatment.

How long does a typical treatment session take?

The length of a typical treatment session is 10 to 15 minutes. However, it depends on the size of the area being treated. Frequency of treatments and treatment plans are determined on an individual basis.

How many treatments does it take?

The number of treatments depends on the nature of the condition being treated. However, patients will need at least six treatments for MLS laser to be effective.

How long before results are felt?

You may feel improvement to your condition after 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 in the same way.

MLS Laser Therapy Testimonials for Arthritis Pain

I received 8 treatments of MLS laser at the Foot and Ankle Center for midfoot arthritis pain. I started to feel better after the 6th treatment. I no longer feel pain in my feet when I get up in the morning and can take shorter walks with no pain. I have some pain with longer walks but nothing like before. When I have pain it’s now a 3 whereas before it was a 7. --Rita L.


MLS Laser Therapy Testimonial for Heel Spurs

I can't say enough how well this procedure worked!! I had 8 treatments of MLS laser therapy(Oct - Nov 2021) to treat inflammation due to a heel spur.  I received 2 treatments per week and started feeling relief after the 2nd treatment.  Each week my pain level was reduced until I was nearly pain free!  I am back on a tennis court and walking my dog without the pain.  I'm so glad I decided to try this process and thank Dr Berg and his team for the amazing outcome. - Susan T

MLS Laser Therapy Testimonial for Old Ankle Injury

Amazing results for improving my long-term foot pain problems. Dr. Berg took the time to listen to my concerns and addressed them in a logical manner. His new low-level laser treatment gave me amazing improvement of an old ankle injury from a car accident as well as improving the neuropathy in my toes that was keeping me awake at night.

MLS Laser Therapy Testimonials for Morton's Neuroma

Dr. Berg and his staff were great to deal with.  I originally went in for toenail fungus  I picked up in a nail salon.  I mentioned to Dr Berg that I have been having a lot of pain in my toes in my right foot.  As I was describing it, he immediately knew what my problem was and it had a name...Morton's neuroma.  I have had this for 10 years.  Other Dr took xrays and didn't see anything so I just dealt with the pain.  A shot regimen and some laser treatments and pain is gone.  
Evelyn K, Mountlake Terrace, June 2019

Dr Berg never gave up. He recommended treatment that may be experimental or overkill (as he may say) to find ways to help my toe heal. He is a wonderful doctor.  He is kind and truly cares.  His staff are all wonderful as well.  Thank you so much Dr Berg, Lucy, Kathy and Brooke!!

MLS Laser Therapy Testimonial for Non-Healing Fracture

I saw Dr Berg due to a toe fracture that was not healing. My initial podiatrist recommended surgery and I saw Dr Berg for a second opinion. He has been a Godsend.  With cold laser therapy treatment and wearing a boot for 3 months, my toe is on its way to recovery!! I just had my final check up today.  My toe is healing and I finally can get off the boot.
