Patient FAQs

Laser therapy is the use of specific wavelengths of light to treat conditions in the body. Our MLS laser was specifically designed with particular wavelengths to treat pain and inflammation.

Multi-wave Locked System. Our patent laser device uses 808nm and 905 nm wavelengths at the same time in a locked delivery system. The wavelengths fire at the same time to promote better healing and faster results.

When laser therapy was first introduced, it was nicknamed “cold laser” to distinguish it from other lasers that cut or burn the skin like those used in surgery. Laser therapy is a medical treatment that uses specific wavelengths of near infrared (NIR) light to promote tissue healing, relieve pain, and reduce inflammation and swelling. The lasers aren’t actually cold, they simply don’t generate perceptible heat. Cold laser generally referred to older lasers that are typically Class III devices. MLS is a highly more advanced Class IV robotic laser device that doesn’t generate perceptible heat.
The two wavelengths our laser emits safely penetrate through the skin and are absorbed by tissues and cells in the body. The energy is used by mitochondria (organelle in the cell) to create cellular energy called ATP. The laser also brings blood flow to the treatment area, which brings with it oxygen and nutrients.
Average treatment time is approximately 10 minutes with the laser. Depending on your condition, you may have a shorter or longer time under the laser to achieve the optimal treatment application.
Based on your condition, your doctor will be able to recommend proper treatments. Common treatments are either 6 visits (acute condition) or 10 visits (chronic condition). Laser therapy is cumulative and builds on previous sessions, much like taking an antibiotic. Most patients experience a gradual improvement in their pain and inflammation as the laser treatment plan progresses. Therefore, it’s important that you complete the entire course of treatments recommended by your doctor. If you discontinue the treatment prior to completing the entire course of care, your symptoms are likely to reoccur.
MLS M8 Laser Therapy treatments are painless, and most patients don’t feel any sensation during treatment. The laser needs to shine directly on your skin so wear lose, comfortable clothing that you can adjust if needed. The office will also be able to provide disposable gowns or shorts if necessary. Most patients will be seated or lying down for their treatment. We will do our best to ensure your comfort throughout the entire treatment. Our staff is specifically trained to ensure optimal patient outcomes and comfort.
We recommend patients go about their lives like normal after laser therapy. However, since the laser decreases pain, don’t jump into too much activity too fast that your body isn’t ready for. Also, avoid icing the area for at least 8 hours after the completion of your visit. If you have a scheduled Physical Therapy, Chiropractor, Occupational Therapy, etc. visit, we recommend you keep your scheduled care with them as well. If you have any questions, please ask us!
Like any medical intervention, laser therapy has potential possible side effects, and each person may respond differently. However, there are currently no known side effects with MLS Laser Therapy.
MLS M8 robotic laser therapy is FDA cleared for the relief of pain, inflammation, and swelling.
No, MLS Laser Therapy is not covered by insurance. We take flexible spending (for example HSA & FSA).

Britny Blevins, William Pennington, and myself are excited to host OrthoLazer Nashua this weekend for OrthoLazer University in Milwaukee. This seminar was designed to help with onboarding new OrthoLazer clinics. Both physicians and OrthoLazer team members will learn and be equipped with the tools needed to be successful in treating patients with the MLS M8 Laser at their OrthoLazer clinic

A year ago, after much anticipation, my partners (Dr. William Pennington, Dr. Daniel Guehlstorf, Dr. Eric Pifel, Dr. Chris Evanich, Dr. Thomas Perlewitz, Dr. Thomas Parisi, and Dr. Jamie Edwards) and I announced that we would be opening the first OrthoLazer Clinic in the Midwest utilizing the MLS M8 laser, the strongest on the market, to help treat patients struggling with pain and inflammation. Three months later, we opened our doors to help those with acute traumas, chronic tears and degenerative arthritis, as well as post-operative patients looking to get back in action sooner. Thank you to all who have supported myself and my team along the way. We can't thank you enough! Welcome to our OrthoLazer World! ... See MoreSee Less

OrthoLazer is a blessing. Very grateful you are in our area. The entire team there has been amazing and very helpful with some chronic injuries that I have!

I would never go out of this group for orthopedic care. I trust everyone of the Doctors. I was very satisfied with the results from ortho lazer. I refer all of my friends, co-workers and family to OIW and now ortho lazer. There isn't a better group in the area.

I couldn’t be more happy with the results after cortisone shots no longer worked for me! Highly recommend this new technology!

I wish I had taken a picture before I started my treatment so there could be a before and after picture – it’s crazy! I didn’t expect to see a physical difference in my knees but they look less swollen and my pain is significantly better.My workouts (mostly running and yoga) really damaged my knees. I felt pain walking up the stairs and would have to lean on the railing. I also had to alter my workouts because my knees were in so much pain. Now I can walk up the stairs with no problem, and can go back to my yoga classes without feeling pain.I didn’t feel relief until about my third treatment, which is normal. I am 26, and really happy I got this treatment right away. The entire staff is excellent. They all want to create the best treatment plan for you to heal.Highly recommend!! There really isn’t any place like it!
