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 $123+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.

“I had been suffering with golfer's elbow for 2 years. My left elbow was sore all the time and it got extremely worse after a round of golf or an evening at the driving range. The elbow pain not only affected my golf game, but many everyday activities were limited.
I heard about Laser Therapy from Dr. Rob one day while getting a chiropractic adjustment. He told me that this was quite a common condition and that he had gotten good results treating it with Laser Therapy, so I gave it a try. In total I had 10 treatments. The improvement at first was slow but as the treatments accumulated the improvement became more evident.
My shoulder pain started about 2.5 years ago. I have tried physiotherapy for a month and that didn't work for me. I went to an injury specialist and had a diagnostic ultrasound and x-ray done and they couldn't figure out what was wrong. Then I was referred to a shoulder specialist and he preformed a MRI and he stated I had bursitis. The last resort was surgery for me, but I was not ready for that. At that point I heard about Laser Therapy and was willing to try anything to get better. After my first visit I felt a little better and after the fourth visit I felt almost completely healed.
I would recommend this therapy to anyone to try and then they can judge for themselves.
After I took a series of laser treatments I enjoyed nine months of no pain. The pain then started to return so I decided to do something about it before I would end up in a wheel chair again. I knew where to go for help. I took several more treatments from LaserHealth® Solutions.
Now I am back - able to do all my own housework and shopping and can live the good life again I am grateful and it is the best return for money spent.
“Playing rep hockey, my first injury leading me to LaserHealth® Solutions was taking a nasty crash into the goal post with another player. My body twisted around the post and I strained my lower back. I go to Doctor Rob‘s chiropractic office all the time for adjustments to my back, but it just wasn‘t helping as much as it should. Doctor Rob recommended that I try out laser. Knowing him to be the good guy that he is I tried it out. To my surprise my back felt better after only one half an hour appointment. It only took 2 other appointments and I was back playing hockey again.
For about a year, I had pain in my feet when I got up in the morning, after sitting for awhile or just standing in one spot! I heard a talk on the radio about LaserHealth® Solutions and hoped that his would help my condition.
I started getting treatments with not too much improvements over the first 4-5 treatments. But then, with Franchesca encouraging me to incorporate stretching and icing with the treatment I saw improvement quickly.
I can recommend this treatment for anyone with the same condition!
I am a very active 5ish year old. My husband and I own and run a local trucking company, before my accident I worked 12 hrs. a day every day, this includes weekends. I did all the cooking, cleaning, washing, gardening, and still make time to spend with my two infant grandchildren. I was a very happy-go- lucky person.
On April 8, 25 I involved in a car accident. I woke up the next day with so much pain in my neck and radiating up the back of my head and down my shoulder blades, with the pain spasming with such pain it brought tears to my eyes. This would go on all day. I was shuffled from doctor to doctor to specialists to other… View the whole post
Two months prior to coming to LaserHealth® Solutions I suffered a severe left ankle sprain, and re-activated an old knee injury on the same leg during a fall on a stairway. Confident that I had no broken bones, and could manage my own recovery, I did not seek immediate professional assessment. Subsequently I found myself attempting to cope unsuccessfully with significant soft tissue damage to my ankle, in addition to the unwelcome companion of swelling in both areas, irritating stiffness, and constant pain.
Traditional treatment combining rest, icing, compression and elevation failed to promote the healing I sought in my ankle.… View the whole post
Laser… Wow! Who would have thought it could change my life? I have arthritis and general degeneration of both knees. When I went to LaserHealth® Solutions for my initial consultation, I was in a wheel chair with braces on both knees and canes to get from my wheel chair to a bed or other chair. I was in serious need of help! Blaine recommended 2-25 treatments of 45 minutes for each knee. I had my first treatment that day. Two days later I came in for my second treatment on crutches with knee braces; what an improvement! For my third treatment 3 days later I actually walked in! No braces, no crutches and definitely no wheel chair!… View the whole post
I originally broke the radial head of my right elbow 14 years ago. Over the years I developed arthritis in the elbow joint and had numerous surgeries to try to amend the situation. After which, I had severe lack of motion (extension) and as well as a lot of pain. Laser has helped greatly by breaking down the accumulation of scar tissue and allowing me to be within 1 degrees of full extension. My elbow extension is better now after laser than after 3 surgeries and other types of therapies. Pain is very minimal and mostly not noticed at all.
Over all I feel that laser has been the backbone to full recovery. I am now able to participate in activities pain free.
I have received 9 treatments from LaserHealth® Solutions for swelling, scarring, and a lump of inflamed tissue due to post surgical trauma from surgery for a broken ankle and torn ligaments. I had such bad swelling at the site of my break, it looked like a bag of fluid was attached to the side of my ankle. The treatments have dissipated this swelling almost entirely and as an added bonus, the six-inch surgical scar has faded dramatically. At the site of where my ligaments were torn and stitched back up, I have increased feeling and sensation. The raised scar is now almost flat and faded considerably. The lump of inflamed tissue on the bottom of my… View the whole post
