Sprained Ankle & Achilles Tendinosis
I first came to your clinic with a sprained ankle. I was expecting six to eight weeks of recovery. Previous ankle sprains have taken that long to recover. I was surprised and even skeptical when the physiotherapist told me that with a combined laser therapy and exercise therapy program I should recover within two to three weeks.
Within three treatments my ankle felt better! After 8 treatments over two weeks, my ankle was back to normal. I could walk and run normally, so I started playing soccer again.
Thanks Lucy for suggesting I get my Achilles Tendinosis treated as well. I’ve had Tendonosis for several years and it never seemed to get better. After 8 treatments over 16 days, the lump in my Achilles tendon reduced significantly. Within another week or two, this old injury should be completely healed.
From the very beginning I was impressed. I’ve been to other clinics where I just felt like a number. Your staff is great! Everyone takes a special interest in taking care of me. I am so impressed with the results, that I sent several close family members to your clinic and they are all recovering well too!

Hockey injury - broken ankle (medial malleolus). Back on skates after two months of therapy.
Hi LightSpeed Staff!
How is everybody at my favorite physiotherapy clinic doing, hopefully well? I have been thinking of you all and wanting to pop in and say hi, however things have been busy with work, kids and all so I figure the next best thing is a quick note instead.
I am doing great lately, my foot is no longer on my mind at all, and is coming around nicely. I am playing hockey regularly and do not have too much pain in the skate. Swelling is mostly a thing of the past, and only gets piggy like after heavy abuse, which is wonderful.!
Cheers to you and your staff for getting me back up and running…pardon the pun! Other than the obvious fact that I was made better by LightSpeed’s staff, I was also made to feel quite welcome and comfortable during an otherwise uncomfortable situation. I hope to stop in and say hi soon, in the mean time say hi to everyone and I hope you are all well….I am!

Ankle Sprain – Class II
Last spring I was walking down the stairs, went over on my ankle and fell down the stairs.
By the time I got my shoe and sock off my ankle was already starting to swell. I thought I may have broken a bone so I went to Oakville Trafalgar Hospital emergency for an x-ray. There were no broken bones and the emergency physician suggested that I get laser therapy for my ankle.
I’ve sprained the same ankle several times and it has always been very weak. I expected four to six weeks for my ankle to recover.
I went to LightSpeed Physiotherapy for laser therapy. I had six treatments over eight days. At the end of eight days, the swelling and bruising was all gone. I had good range of motion, could stand on my toes and walk normally again.
The physiotherapist told me I had a proprioception problem and need to retrain my ankle muscles. The kinesiologist gave me several exercises, which I could do at home, so I wouldn’t keep spraining my ankle.
Your staff is great! Somehow you made this a great experience. I never thought I would be therapy and having fun at the same time. I want to thank you all for giving me my summer back!
