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 have had three operations on my lower back with the last one being a disc removal. Even after that I was suffering from constant pain in my lower back with it radiating down my right leg. I was in pain 24 hours a day and was taking anti-inflammatory drugs. I started laser treatments and noted pain relief after four treatments. After nine treatments my lower back pain is completely gone and I have been able to stop using Celebrex. It has been three months since the end of treatments and I feel like I have gotten my life back. I am able to be more active, have lost weight and life is much, much more enjoyable. I am… View the whole post
“I have been going for laser treatments at LaserHealth® Solutions for a couple of months for a chronic right Achilles tendon injury I sustained while playing baseball. The pain was so bad that I had difficulty walking. After 17 laser treatments I am back to playing baseball and running all the bases. A few weeks later my left heel started to hurt and it was diagnosed as Plantar Fasciitis. I began laser treatments immediately after my heel pain started. It worked much quicker (9 treatments) on the new injury compared to the chronic Achilles problem. I had custom made orthotics made by Dr. Rob and the foot pain is now also gone.”
“I broke my wrist one year ago. The break healed fine but the pain in my tendons persisted and was real bad. I went to physiotherapy and it only helped a bit. Since I have been coming to LaserHealth® Solutions for laser treatments, I can do a lot more things now. I am now going back to my weightlifting classes and I can dig in my garden again.
I am 74 years old and I broke my ankle and had to have surgery on it when I was 21 years old. Gradually after I turned 6 the ankle progressively got worse to the point that I wanted the doctors to cut it off. The only option that the orthopedic specialist gave was to fuse my ankle joint. I tried many different alternatives from exercises to taking supplements and ointments. Nothing seemed to help. I then heard about the laser treatment from the local newspaper. I was skeptical about the laser after tying so many other therapies that didn't help. After the third treatment I noticed that the pain to be lesser and now after 11… View the whole post
I was having pain bending my knee. My doctor said I had bursitis. I heard about LaserHealth® Solutions on the Talk to the Experts program so I thought I would come in and talk to them. I had 5 treatments and was able to play golf without pain. I was able to walk 9 holes! I am now able to walk every morning again. I am happy with the treatments.
“I came in complaining of pain and discomfort due to a Bakers Cyst and tendonitis of a hamstring. After 11 treatments with cold laser, the cyst seemed to be gone and the discomfort has been hugely alleviated! I have much greater range of motion during exercise and I'm able to resume my activities with barely any discomfort. Not only has the cyst disappeared, but I'm confident that the tendonitis which caused the Bakers Cyst has also healed through the laser treatments.”
Ken presented to our office with Golfer's Elbow (inside elbow pain). He found the pain so intense that it interfered with his golf game. This is what he experienced at our office.
When I first began Laser Therapy I was skeptical about its value. After the third or fourth treatment I began to notice and feel improvements. By the sixth or seventh treatments, most of my pain and discomfort was gone. Because I'm very active, I think the process took a little longer.
“I was in a rollover motor vehicle accident 8 years ago.My neck was sore constantly and I was desperate for a solution.I was waking up every night in pain.It would keep me awake for up to half the night.I heard about LaserHealth® Solutions and thought I should try it.After 6 treatments I have no pain at all and am now sleeping soundly through the night.
“I am 89 years old. I dislocated both of my knees at different times in my younger and senior years. With age, my knees deteriorated and arthritis compounded the problem. Finally I had to use a walker and eventually a wheelchair. I had constant pain while walking, sitting or trying to sleep. I had made up my mind that I was always going to be in a wheelchair. At this point I was introduced to Laser Therapy through a presentation that was given at our Seniors' Manor. I thought, what did I have to lose? It couldn't get any worse. I took ten treatments on each knee and, unbelievably, I can walk unaided better than I have in… View the whole post
