Laser Therapy

Here at YPL we understand the importance of reducing your pain quickly and effectively to get you back to your best. That’s why we have invested in state-of-the-art advanced laser technology that works to effectively to eliminate pain and reduce inflammation.

MLS® Laser Therapy is a safe, non-invasive and painless therapy for the treatment of pain, inflammation and swelling.

This therapy uses dual wavelengths of infrared light to penetrate deep into the tissues and stimulate regeneration at a cellular level. It has the following effects to promote healing and help speed up the process of recovery:

  • Inhibits the sensory nerve impulses associated with pain
  • Decreases inflammatory cells
  • Relaxes muscle spasm immediately
  • Increases vascular supply and restores normal blood flow
  • Provides energy for the cells within the tissue allowing them to repair

What is MLS® laser therapy?
Laser therapy safely and painlessly uses light to help to reduce pain, inflammation and swelling and to promote healing.
How does MLS® laser therapy work?
Laser therapy involves directing light energy into inflamed or damaged tissue to accelerate the body’s natural healing process. The laser is placed in direct contact with the skin which enables specific wavelengths of light to penetrate the tissue and interact with molecules within the cells to cause several biochemical effects.
My pain has been there for a long time, can MLS® laser help me?
Yes, absolutely. Laser therapy is appropriate for both chronic (long term) and acute (new pain/injury) conditions.
Does it hurt?
No, laser therapy with the MLS® Laser is completely pain free. The system is totally safe to use thanks to its unique safety system. Some patients have reported that that feeling of having the head of the laser machine moved over the area of pain is soothing and similar to a relaxing massage!
Is there anyone who can't have MLS® laser therapy?

Laser therapy can be carried out on most people including children.

However, laser may be contraindicated in those who:

  • ​Have cancer
  • Are under the age of 16 and the area to be treated is over a growth plate (assessment can be given).
  • Are pregnant

So, what can MLS® laser therapy be used to treat?

MLS® laser therapy can be used to treat many conditions including:

  • Muscle spasm and pain
  • Plantar fasciitis
  • Arthritis
  • Strains and sprains
  • Back pain
  • Hip pain
  • Knee pain
  • Sciatica
  • Bursitis
  • Tendonitis
  • Haematoma (bruising) and swelling
  • Neuropathy
  • Wounds
  • Ulcers
How many sessions will I need?
Generally, we recommend 3-6 sessions. Often acute conditions respond more quickly than chronic problems.
What to expect:

After a full clinical assessment of your condition, we will tailor make a treatment protocol just for you.

The number of sessions you will require will depend on the condition – this will be discussed in your initial appointment.

Treatments are quick and painless and often you will feel the results after the first treatment. For chronic conditions it may take a few sessions for you to feel the effects, but the cellular benefits will be immediate.

“I can highly recommend laser treatment. After having chronic heel pain for quite a few months that wasn’t responding to any treatment, after just 3 appointments there’s a significant improvement in my pain levels”

G Clarke

“I am so glad that I came in to see you after having problems with excruciating needle like pain in the heels of my feet which were causing me to stagger and stumble about when I got up from a sitting or lying down position. This had been going on over the past 18 months gradually getting worse to the point I eventually couldn’t sleep because of the continual throbbing pain in my foot and muscle spasms. I had been self-medicating with pain relief in order to get through day-to-day life and I was at my wits end when I came to see you because the pain had become unbearable. I was worried you might think I was imagining it but you immediately knew what the problem was and how ease my symptoms with exercises and more appropriate pain relief which gave me hope for the first time in ages. You were kind, professional and immediately put me at ease. I had the laser treatment therapy immediately in the office and simply could not believe the change. I stood up and felt absolutely no pain in my feet or calf muscles, my legs felt relaxed and supple, and I felt like I could have skipped out of the surgery. Thank you so much for your help.”
