ORLANDO, Fla., June 20, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- With more Americans searching for alternatives to using narcotics to manage pain, a group of physicians and therapists using a safe and painless FDA-cleared MLS® (Multi-Wave Locked System) pulse laser are meeting in Orlando this weekend, June 22-23, to create the country's first MLS Laser Pain Management Association.
More than 30 attendees—from California to South Florida— will meet to craft a Global Database network that will assist in optimizing treatment protocols, create a standardized system for sharing information, organize clinical trials and ultimately grow pain patient awareness of laser treatment effectiveness and a 1-800 referral network for practitioners.
"Now, though we have some 350 doctors using the MLS® pulse laser in the US and a larger number employing lasers from other manufacturers, we lack the ability to share information through any central database," said Tom Pirelli, a retired South Florida businessman, whose personal pain treatment experience with the MLS® led him to research and then promote the health benefits of the therapy. "All of these practitioners—from many different specialties—are essentially independents. Our goal is to centralize data and doctor-to-doctor communications, which will in the end result in better treatment protocols and more patients understanding the benefits of laser therapy."
Dr. Lucio Zaghetto, President of ASA Laser in Arcugnana, Italy, will present the science of MLS® at the conference. Dr. Zaghetto's 35 years experience and research led to the development in the MLS® line of lasers.
Laser therapy has been used effectively for many years, but advances in technology have produced "the next generation of laser therapy" with the new MLS® M6 Robotic Therapy Laser, which uses specific wavelengths of light to treat painful and debilitating conditions. Unlike conventional lasers, the robotized M6 therapies offer a complete saturation of the treated area, inducing strong anti-inflammatory, anti-edema and analgesic effects simultaneously and within a short period of time. The M6 combines and synchronizes emission of continuous and pulsed laser emissions with different infrared wavelengths, a unique, patented treatment feature.
Pain conditions treated include joints, neck and back, shoulder, tendonitis, bursitis, arthritis, sciatica, shingles, ligament sprains and strains, stress injuries, muscular injuries, sports injuries and post surgical pain and swelling.
