The Calgary clinic opened in 2004 and has successfully treated thousands of people for conditions such as tendonitis, sciatica, cervical and shoulder injuries, tennis elbow, low back pain, TMJ syndrome, plantar fasciitis, sports injuries and arthritis. Treatments are a combination of laser therapy and manual therapy.
Laser therapy is proven to help reduce or eliminate inflammation. Light photons are deeply absorbed by soft tissue, stimulating physiological effects necessary to healing. It is a painless, noninvasive therapy which can help restore normal cell function and enhance the body’s healing processes.
The manual work provided by the therapists includes Manual Osteopathic Therapy, Somatics, Onsen® Therapy and Massage Therapy Techniques. These are used to assess and correct structural and functional imbalances. Improved musculoskeletal balance means the reduction or elimination of pain, an increased range of motion and the release of entrapped nerves or trigger points.
The cost is $125+GST per visit. An assessment is included in the first visit at no extra charge and each visit takes just under an hour. You are one-on-one with the therapist the whole time. You won't just be receiving laser therapy. Laser therapy is an important part of the treatment because of its ability to reduce or eliminate inflammation and speed up the healing process. The manual therapy is just as important because these techniques deal with the structural and muscular reasons why the pain and inflammation started. Laser Health Solutions has developed a unique therapy program using Osteopathic techniques, Laser Therapy, Somatics, and Massage Therapy that you won't find anywhere else. On average, only ten treatments are needed.
If you have insurance benefits which allow you to see a Registered Massage Therapist (RMT), you can claim reimbursement for Laser Health Solutions treatments when you see one of our RMTs. If you have any of the following insurance and are able to see a Manual Osteopathic Therapist (DMO), you are able to claim reimbursement when treated by one of our osteopaths: Blue Cross, Desjardins, Empire Life, Equitable Life, Great West Life, Canada Life, Greenshield, Manulife or Sunlife.

“About 1.5 years ago I hurt my back. After trying other therapies, I came across Laser Health Solutions. I was originally coming in to check out another technique of chiropractic that was suggested to me, but Dr. Rob suggested I try Laser Therapy. I decided to give it a try since nothing else was giving me relief for any length of time. It's been 2 months since I started and it feels better than it has in 1.5 years!”
“A few months ago I slowly developed right knee pain under my knee cap and it lasted for 2 months. I tried other therapies and nothing seemed to help. Walking was proving extremely painful. I was referred to Laser Health Solutions by a friend. I completed 10 laser treatments on my right knee, and I am very happy to report that I am 99% better. Walking and using my legs are a lot easier. Thank you to the staff at LHS.”

In January 2014 I hurt my left shoulder doing an agressive yoga pose. In March of that same year, an ultrasound reveiled that I had bursitis and I torn the tendon of the supraspinatus and subscapularis muscles. This injury rendered my shoulder and left arm as a painful thing that hung lifelessly on the left side of my body.
I was not able to work at a computer, do my normal daily chores, shower myself and worse yet was that I was not able to instruct correctly in a yoga class and that I was unable to sleep due to the intense level of… View the whole post
Going down the stairs is pretty easy for me BUT when you are not careful enough, you may end up missing a step – and getting a sprained ankle.I have played so many sports in the past BUT never experienced a sprained ankle until the other day.
BUT this was no excuse to call in sick to work. In fact, I had the chance to do my own ankle treatment because I work at LaserHealth® Solutions!
Walking on crutches didn't help my ongoing breast and spine condition. BUT, thank God for laser therapy. After 4 days, I was off the crutches, full weight bearing and able to enjoy the freezing Sunday at church and walked and shopped at the farmer's market with my family.
I had a severe tendonitis in my wrist which compromised my ability to do just about everything. I couldn't butter toast or cut a sandwich in half. I couldn't clean my house or make meals for my family. I just could not use my right hand at all. My family doctor had me try medication and then physio. Neither helped. Then I had my right arm placed in a cast for a month with the thought complete rest would help. Once the cast was removed it seemed nothing was going to help me… in fact my wrist was worse. I said to my doctor surely I am not expected to live like this for the rest of my life. Finally he suggested I try laser! I am a… View the whole post
My plantar fasciitis was painful. I dreaded getting up from a lying or sitting position because I knew what was in store for me. Pain. With every step.I sought relief through physiotherapy and acupuncture but neither seemed to work. Then I saw an ad in the newspaper for laser therapy and visited the website. I wasn't sure what laser therapy entailed but the testimonials I read made me hopeful for a solution to my pain. I thought I'd give it a try and I'm so glad I did.
In a very short time after starting treatment, I noticed the pain subsiding and within a couple of months I was pain free.Not only that, the treatments were… View the whole post
I injured my shoulders while struggling to pull my top over my head! Both my left and right shoulders were injured. This occurred in March and as the pain progressed I decided to go to my doctor in June. He did not diagnose it as frozen shoulder and did not examine me. I then went to my chiropractor. He was well exposed to sports injuries and had helped me and my husband in the past. He did not diagnose it as frozen shoulder and recommended heat. My range of motion and pain increased exponentially and by August I returned to my chiropractor's office and saw his colleague. This second chiropractor diagnosed me with… View the whole post
During a period of approx. 3-4 months I was experiencing severe pain in my shoulder & arm, causing me to have restrictions in my activities for both work and play. Having had a previous case to need help- which was similar to this, I looked to Dr. Rob & associates for relief. I had a series of treatments and am happy to testify of my success and at this time I am pain free. I would strongly recommend LaserHealth® Solutions to anyone who may have a similar need for pain relief. It worked for me – it could work for you also.
“I injured my right shoulder moving washing machine. Pain increased over time as well as a loss of motion that interfered with everyday activities and sleep. Laser treatments combined with Dr. Rob's recommended exercises restored range of motion and decreased pain to a minimum. No pain at all in every day normal activities.”
