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.

After completing two years at the University of Alberta in Nutritional Sciences, Katie decided to make a change and moved to Victoria, BC where she was a part of the first graduating class of the Exercise and Wellness diploma at Camosun College. After completing her diploma she went a step further and completed her Bachelor of Athletic and Exercise Therapy degree.

Following graduation Katie began working out of Pura Vida as an exercise physiologist - CSEP-CEP and athletic therapist – CAT(C) before moving to Total Body where she ran the rehab side of the business. She also spent time working with Highlanders FC, UVic golf and rowing programs, and has experience treating professional golfers, surfers and the general public.

Now, working as the Clinic Manager of the Camosun AET Clinic, Katie has turned her focus to building an active learning environment for CSEE students where she hopes to provide students with quality clinical experience in order to help them succeed in both their education and future careers.

Jamie Johnson Clinic Manager; Certified Athletic Therapist

Originally from Fort Saskatchewan, Alberta, Jamie graduated from the Bachelor of Athletic and Exercise Program at Camosun College in 2013 and resided in Vancouver, BC putting an emphasis on high performance athletics while completing a MSc in Rehabilitation Science.

She joined the Vancouver Whitecaps FC medical team in 2013 focusing her time with the residency and women’s program. During this five-year stint, she focused heavily on high performance return to sport, acute injury management, and exercise science. She was also named to Canada's Women’s U17 National team, touring with them to various tournaments around the world. Wanting to be apart of collegiate athletics she became the Head Athletic Therapist at Capilano University. In 2019 Jamie was involved with two World Championships (the World Junior Hockey Championships and the World Indoor Lacrosse Championships) and her abstract on cardiovascular conditioning in non-athletic concussion patients was presented in the 2020 Journal of Head Trauma Rehabilitation which she created in conjunction with Advance Concussion Clinic in Vancouver.

Jamie is known for her active and evidence-based approach to rehabilitation where she believes appropriate movement is medicine. Research drives her decision-making skills where acute injury management and the full-person approach is key to a quick and safe return to sports and life. She used this approach daily as she opened up her own private practice in Langley, BC. She also sits as the President of the Athletic Therapists Association of B.C. and strives to continue to educate everyone on the importance of Athletic Therapy in the health discipline models.
