Our Clinic 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. Photons of laser energy penetrate deeply into tissue and accelerate cellular reproduction and growth. As a result of exposure to the MLS Laser, the cells of tendons, ligaments and muscles repair themselves faster. As inflammation is reduced pain subsides very quickly. In simple terms, laser energy kick-starts the healing process, thereby speeding recovery.
Non-Invasive Vascular Studies
Eight to twelve million Americans have Peripheral Arterial Disease (PAD). Without proper treatment, 30% are likely to suffer PAD-related stroke, heart attack, amputation or death. Detection and care for PAD can be dramatically improved by connecting physicians and vascular specialists to optimize collaborative patient care with the use of non-invasive vascular studies. Non-invasive vascular studies are performed in-office for the early detection of Peripheral Artery Disease (PAD). Call our office today to schedule your study.
