laser

LASER Therapy LightForce Class IV LASER

The Deep Tissue Class IV Hot LASER works by means of light energy. This Hot LASER penetrates deep into the tissues, stimulating the damaged cells and increasing circulation to the painful area. This produces a cascade of healing responses in your body, reducing inflammation, thereby reducing or even eliminating your pain.

Our Certified Athletic Therapists are specifically trained to use the Class IV LASER to reach both deep and superficial tissues involving injuries such as ligament sprains and muscular strains, arthritis, calcified muscles and fibrotic adhesions, as well as intra-articular tissues inside of the joints. Within a few sessions the Class IV LASER allows many conditions to vastly improve. With treatment times of as little as 5 to 15 minutes, often patients find immediate, soothing warmth and relief that improves with each session.

This unique therapy can be used as:

  • Adjunct to prescription drugs
  • Substitute for surgery
  • Pre-surgery treatment
  • Post-surgery treatment to accelerate healing
  • Long-term pain management system
  • Acute injury treatment

Your initial LASER appointment consists of a one hour assessment and treatment where the practitioner will assess your area of concern and provide LASER therapy treatment. Subsequent treatments will range from 5 to 15 minutes, depending on the condition being treated.

Page Allison Certified Athletic Therapist

Page completed her education at Camosun College, where she graduated from the Bachelor of Athletic and Exercise program. She was exposed to a variety of different sports and injuries while completing her 1200 volunteer hours. Since becoming certified as an Athletic Therapist in 2015, she has worked both in the clinic and field setting. She started working at the AET clinic in May 2016, where she quickly discovered her passion for helping students learn and grow as Athletic Therapists in a positive environment.

Having grown up on Vancouver Island, she has been exposed to all the wonderful things it has to offer. In the winter months, she spends the majority of her spare time snowboarding – with her favorite mountain being Whitewater in Nelson. When the snow is gone she loves hiking and exploring with her dog in East Sooke. She also enjoys camping off the beaten path, and staying fit through running, going to the gym and canoeing.
