About Glenn Cameron

With failing vision Glenn Cameron founder and CEO of Innovative Therapy Canada, decided to pursue a career that would not require sight. Glenn graduated in 2008 as a blind massage therapist from Kine Concept Ottawa, one of the most therapeutic oriented training schools in Ontario. His education focused entirely on the therapeutic aspect of the profession, learning two of the most important and highly effective types of manual modalities available to therapists, being myofascial release therapy (MFR) and neuromuscular therapy (NMT). Glenn was well prepared to resolve conditions when he graduated.

Four months into his career, Glenn knew he was missing something, a type of therapy or tool which would help him remove the extremely small hardened dysfunctions he could feel as a result of his blindness, but could not remove. They were unwanted calcifications common to severe tendon injuries, hardened painful bands characteristic of myofascial adhesions, and ropey disorganized and extremely painful fibres within dysfunctional tendons. He quickly found what he was looking for in May 2009 in Toronto, and it would prove to change the course of his career. Glenn was trained in the theory and application of shockwave therapy, the same acoustic wave technology used to break apart kidney stones. Over the many years since then, Glenn has developed a sixth sense administering shockwave therapy because of his extraordinary ability to feel the structures which require its use. Looking back now, having become a shockwave therapy professional, was a career-altering decision for Glenn and the clinic.

Glenn was born with retinitis pigmentosa, a genetic eye disorder which eventually robs a person of their sight. He had good vision in his earlier years, enjoyed flying small aircraft until his vision deteriorated so that his flying career ended at the age of 24. Two years later Glenn gave up his driver’s license beginning the life of a disabled person. Learning braille was the next normal progression for a person going blind but Glenn never knew at that time how life-altering it would be. It took him 5 years to develop the sensitivity in his fingers to be able to read the tiny Braille dots with speed, mentally converting the tiny dot patterns into alphabetical characters and ultimately words and sentences. According to medical researchers, we all have roughly 50,000 receptors in every square inch of our fingertips, but most don’t really develop sensitivity with these receptors. Those who read Braille do, and what a remarkable transformation this heightened sense of touch creates in a world without sight.

Glenn has taken multiple advanced training courses over the years, to further his knowledge and skill, constantly researching conditions he treats to understand why they developed in the first place. He knew if he could identify why conditions developed, he could create a successful approach to permanently resolving them, which is exactly what he has done.

Glenn’s most recent training was in the United States focusing on the physiology and practicum in Functional Neurology, a branch of therapeutic neurology called Trigenics. Trigenics is the study to understand the communication between the central nervous system (CNS) and muscles. Communication errors result in abnormal muscle behavior, resulting in pain in muscles and joints. Glenn’s sixth sense told him that in some people their muscles are not functioning correctly, not getting the proper neurological signal they require to do so. This seminar answered all his questions as to why and how to correct this nervous system-muscle miscommunication process.

Trigenics is the most important discovery for Glenn since his shockwave therapy back in 2008. Now he is implementing this into his practice and is seeing its positive effects and so are those who seek help from him. Glenn is now integrating Trigenics with shockwave therapy and magnetic biostimulation therapy, perhaps the most innovative approach to therapy. Glenn is grateful to have the knowledge and skill to help people from all over North America, resolving issues that they can’t seem to find answers to.

Glenn is now able to offer almost everyone he treats the chance for a better life. It’s a career driven by a passion for resolving even the most difficult of issues in people with his own blindness always in the back of his mind. He hopes that someday a health care professional like him will do what he does to so many people, and find a cure to his problem. Until then Glenn will continue to help those who seek treatments from him.
