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.

I injured my right shoulder in a fall in the bath 2 years ago. Movement had been restricted as was my strength. Not to mention the grinding, popping and pain. After 6 treatments of trigger points and lasers I have greatly improved. My shoulder doesn't hurt anymore and it is now a contributing member of the body, no more free rides.
While treating my shoulder Blaine did some work on my hands, I have rheumatoid arthritis and my fingers were swollen and painful. After the first treatment my swelling and pain was reduced. I can pick things up and rub my hands together, put lotion on without hurting.
The biggest benefit from my Laser Therapy has been the reduction of constant nit picking pain, I call it brain fog. I know have room for ideas.
Mid September I felt a 'pop' and 'fullness' at the back of my knee. It didn't hurt until about 2 weeks later. I had heard about Laser Therapy from friends and decided I would try this therapy. After a few treatments I was pain free. Then on October 25 my knee buckled and I was off my feet due to the pain. However, I persisted with therapy and was amazed at how quickly I improved to the point of being pain free within a week.
For the last two years the bottoms of both of my feet were very sore and it was hard to walk on. After treatment of laser sessions I find it pain free walking now. I would recommend laser treatment to anyone.
Thank you for allowing me the opportunity to wear shoes with heels that I have not been able to wear for years. The heel spurs have seemed to disappear.Walking or standing on cement is no problem now! Walking a mile is also no problem!Thank you so much!
“Before coming to LaserHealth® Solutions I had really bad pain in my left heel for about 3 years.So bad that I had to postpone doing any exercise that pertained to using my foot at all and I couldn't walk very far without taking strong medication.After trying many procedures the next thought that came to mind was surgery as nothing was working to improve my condition.
I was driving my car one day when I heard on the radio about LaserHealth® Solutions and decided to give it a try.What did I have to lose?With the exceptional help of Blaine and Janet they figured out that the area in my calf was… View the whole post
I did treatments at LaserHealth® Solutions for a shoulder and elbow problem in August 21.I had been in pain for about a year. It had gotten so bad that I wasn't able to golf and the pain was waking me up at night. I was getting very frustrated. I had an x-ray and an ultrasound.My doctor said I had tennis elbow and he suggested a cortisone shot, but I wanted to do a treatment that fixed the problem instead of just postponing the symptoms for a while. I also didn't like the sound of the side effects of cortisone. I asked my doctor about Laser Therapy and though he didn't know much about it, he said to give it a try.

“I'm a self employed heavy duty mechanic.The work I do includes a lot of heavy lifting and pulling.My shoulder pain started close to 2 years ago.I was in pretty much constant pain.Even driving was painful.And I was missing out on sleep – there was no comfortable position.An ultrasound in November of 2010 showed a partial tear in one of my rotator cuff tendons.The doctors were recommending surgery and advised me that it would take three months to be able to work afterwards.… View the whole post
“I had back pain for 3 years.It got to the point where it was very difficult to move.Even normal activities like getting in and out of the vehicle and bending over to reach into the sink were painful.That burning pain of inflammation was the worst.It felt like I was on fire!It wouldn't settle down no matter what I did.My back bothered me at night too.I'd roll over in my sleep and wake up due to sharp pain.
After my first treatment at LaserHealth® Solutions, I noticed a big change – then gradual improvement from there.About half way through my 11 treatments, I took a little… View the whole post
I had knee pain for 3 months before coming to LaserHealth® Solutions. It started when I was exercising using my X-box Kinect game. It had a combination of jumping, running and boxing. Lots of activity on my left knee caused it to get sore to the point that I felt it was going to buckle. I had to stop doing the track and field exercises on the game.
My knee was very sore and kept me awake at night. I had to go up the stairs one foot at a time. My husband had been to LaserHealth® Solutions before for his golfer's elbow and it was fixed so I decided to go especially since I was getting ready for golfing season.
“Hi! My feet have hurt for so long, seems like forever. I have told my family doctor about my discomfort, to no avail. I have been to many chiropractors, who would snap, crackle and pop, to no avail. I have spent a small fortune on orthotics, to no avail. I have many pairs of shoes, hoping to find just the right pair and nothing has taken the pain away. My feet felt like they had been beaten. Simple tasks, such as a grocery shop was a chore. How unfair is it to not even enjoy a mall shop, knowing when I got to one end of the mall I would be dreading the painful walk back. Pain killers got me through the days when my puppies would look at me… View the whole post
