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.

About 8-10 years ago, I fell on a slippery bridge. I landed on my right knee. It hurt a lot, but I soon forgot about it. Then 3 weeks later my right knee became so swollen - not painful, so I just lived with it. It was huge for quite a while - about 2 months. It was always weak from that point on. I also sustained an injury to my hip which affected my knee over time. Another problem I have that's connected to the knee problem is that I lack power in my legs. I have, for many years, been unable to climb stairs very well at all. As time progressed, my knee started to hurt worse and worse. I felt like an 89-year-old woman. Limping terribly, scared… View the whole post
I had hurt my shoulder on October 30th helping my sister move. After a month of complaining to my wife, I came across an ad in the newspaper that suggested I could relieve my pain with a simple laser light treatment. Let's just say I was very skeptical, I have had numerous injuries from football, hockey and baseball. The only thing that ever worked in the past was physiotherapy or surgery. So without wanting to go through all that I decided to give it a try. On consultation I was told I should have been in right away, but better late than never. I thought to myself they are preparing me for when it doesn't help. After my second treatment I… View the whole post
“I have lived with a right side mid back muscle tear (as determined by an MRI) for approximately two and a half years.I have tried various treatments from physiotherapy, chiropractic, massage and numerous drug regimens (i.e.: Vioxx, ibuprofen and other muscle relaxants).
After 1 half-hour treatments of LILT, I am finally getting some relief.Naturally, after 3 months of wearing a protective bandage while golfing, curling, or exercising, I was skeptical of trying any other treatments.In short, I considered my condition could not be remedied.
I am recommending LILT to friends because of the vast improvement of my condition”.
I was using a new exercise machine and either over did it or was using it wrong. I ended up tendonitis. It was very painful just below my kneecap. And it kept getting worse. After my first Laser Therapy treatment, it was quite a bit better. I only needed one more treatment and the pain was gone!
I went out for a run and took a hard fall when I hit a patch of ice. I broke the fall with my left arm. I sat there for a minute evaluating the damage. Nothing was broken, but within 24 hours my shoulder was killing me. It was difficult to sleep and I thought I wouldn't be running again for a few weeks because it was so sore when I moved my arm.
I started Laser Therapy treatments on my shoulder 2 days after the fall. After only 3 treatments, it was 80% better. And it only took 5 treatments in total to heal it. I was very happy to be running again so soon.
I tore the ACL in my left knee while playing basketball in the summer and undergone reconstructive surgery in October 24. Having had many friends whom had gone through the same surgery and hearing about their stories with post reconstruction rehabilitation, I was not looking forward to the long road to recovery. After spending a month on crutches, a full knee immobilizer and putting myself through painful daily stretches, the swelling in my knee had finally settled down and it was now time to endure aggressive physiotherapy. My left leg was literally half the size it was before surgery, it was very stiff and I had very little range of motion.… View the whole post
“I had a lot of pain when I was sitting down.Since 14 years old, I had this pain and I tried so many different therapies, but nothing worked for me.I went for physiotherapy for about 3 years, massage for 1 year, a lot of acupuncture treatments and I was taking medications to relieve this pain.Finally I heard about LaserHealth® Solutions therapy for pain.I phoned right away to have an appointment.
From the 1st treatment, I could tell the difference.Treatment after treatment the pain was less and less.
Now after 9 treatments, I am free of pain.I feel great!
I had pain that was in my shoulder and under my right shoulder blade. Working on the computer would really aggravate it. On average, I went to chiropractic and physiotherapy appointments once every two weeks for 6 years. They helped me manage the pain, but it never went away completely. It went from annoying to intolerable.
I heard that Low Intensity Laser Therapy might be able to help and decided to give it a try. I was skeptical, but what did I have to lose? After only 8 treatments, the pain was completely gone! I was thrilled, but still skeptical and kept waiting for the pain to come back. Well, it's been a year and a half since my treatments… View the whole post
I had come to LaserHealth® Solutions previously for pain I was experincing in my right shoulder several months ago. As a result of the success I returned for more treatments when I overdid it while running one Saturday morning.
My ankle was swollen, very tender and I wasn't able to walk very well by the afternoon. On Monday, it wasn't much better, so I started Laser Therapy treatments. After only 3 treatments, my ankle was back to normal. I was able to continue running again at my usual pace after only a week after the injury happened.
I was very impressed with how quickly this injury healed. I've run for many years and have experienced quite a… View the whole post
“In the case of LaserHealth® Solutions, the name says it all. After breaking my clavicle, Dr. Rob immediately started treatment on the broken bone. The results were phenomenal and immediate. They reduced my healing time from 6-8 weeks to being ready to play in a mere 5 weeks. What's in a name? LHS was able to “solve” the issues I had with my clavicle and not simply treat the symptoms. The laser helped stimulate bone cell growth and dramatically increased the mending process. In addition, I did not suffer range of motion limitations or scar… View the whole post
