Laser Therapy

Laser technology has been used safely and effectively worldwide for the past 20 years. It creates an optimum healing environment and speeds up the healing process for musculoskeletal conditions such as muscle sprains and strains. 

Our laser, the MR4 Laser is the "equipment of choice" for numerous national, professional and college teams worldwide- including Cirque du Soleil, NFL, NHL and the NBA.

 

How does it work?

The MR4 laser stimulates the mitochondria which is the part of the cell that creates energy. Energy is created inside the cell which makes cell function more efficient. The energy has nowhere to go, so it is put towards cell regeneration and as a result it speeds up healing. Laser Therapy is non-invasive and Side Effects Free. It is approved by Health Canada, and is Evidence Based Technology. 
 

Patients generally see results after 2 treatments, but up to 5 treatments may be required. Your therapist will develop a treatment plan that is optimal for your condition. You don't need to be a professional athlete to be treated like one!

The MR4 laser is a good treatment choice for medical conditions that aren't showing great improvement with conventional therapies. These include pain relief associated with:

Soft Tissue and Sports Injuries

  • Ligament/tendon/muscle tears
  • Knee dysfunction (Meniscal/ligamentous tears)
