MLS Laser


Our doctors are the only certified Cox technic providers in Central and Western Iowa!

What is it?

Laser therapy uses light to favor and accelerate the body’s natural healing processes. The laser beam is moved over the skin so that the light energy (photons) penetrates the tissue where it interacts with various molecules (chromophores) that cause different biological effects. It produces a photochemical, photothermal and photomechanical effect.

MLS Laser Therapy is quickly becoming the standard of care in alleviating both acute and chronic pain.
