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 Osteopathic, Somatics, Onsen® and massage techniques. These techniques 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 $120 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.

My daughter started suffering about 3 years ago with extreme heel pain. We took her to our doctor, sports clinic and finally Children's Hospital. We where told that she had Plantar Fasciitis and that there wasn't much we could do for our then 9 year old. She couldn't continue dancing, running or just walking as it was causing flare-ups. She was in constant pain, at times she could barely walk. We didn't want to put her through surgery and hoped to control her flare-ups as best as we could. Then I met Dr. Rob and Dr. Y.Y. through a running group. One week they were the guest speakers and offered an info evening at their… View the whole post
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.”
Low Intensity Laser Therapy has been a Godsend! Unlike my first encounter with Plantar Fasciitis, which lasted over a 3-year period, I have experienced a great deal of relief with Laser Therapy. And after only 6 treatments. I would highly recommend laser treatments to anyone who wishes to return to their normal level of functioning. Laser, stretching and ice have worked wonders in getting me back on track.
I came to LaserHealth® Solutions (Vancouver) 6 weeks ago, diagnosed with a torn rotator cuff and frozen right shoulder. The condition had been present for 5 months and was causing considerable constant pain and lack of sleep. I had tried 2 different physiotherapists, acupuncture and had been seen by an orthopedic surgeon and was told nothing could be done for six months. My drive to the clinic required that I support my right elbow with a pillow to reduce the pain. One half hour after the treatment my pain was gone. I no longer require pain killers and am slowly getting more movement back. This is now my 15th treatment and am very… View the whole post
I had been suffering from a sore foot and unable to walk normally for about 6 weeks. I had been to see my doctor who diagnosed it as plantar fasciitis. I was also seeing a massage therapist who had been working on the muscles attached to the fascia but I had not really had any relief from the pain. A friend of mine mentioned Laser Therapy treatment. I asked some questions and decided to try the Laser Therapy. The day after the first treatment, I felt a difference when I stood on my foot. With each treatment the pain seemed to lessen and now I am walking normally again with virtually no pain. This is after 13 treatments. I am still… View the whole post
Since having 9 laser treatment on my right knee, I have NO pain! Plus, I feel much more sure as I walk and I'm not so wobbly. Now I'm able to get back at gardening with lots of rests between and I'm progressing.
“As a 70 year old retiree, golfing was my favorite activity.Neck, shoulder and back pain make that nearly impossible.Kneading bread dough or washing a floor would result in my lying in bed with a heating pad because of the pain.
I have tried the laser method for pain and I'm excited with the results!I am now golfing, baking bread and am able to do more household chores every day.
Ten treatments made this all possible!
I'm glad that I don't need prescription pain killers any more.”
