About the Therapist - Glenn Cameron

With failing sight, due to a genetic eye disease, in 2006 Glenn Cameron, Founder of Innovative Therapy Canada, decided to pursue a career that would not require complete sight. Glenn graduated in 2008 as a blind massage therapist from Kine Concept Ottawa, one of the most therapeutically-oriented training schools in Canada. His education focused entirely on the therapeutic aspect of the profession, preparing him for a career in treating chronic pain.

Four months into his career, Glenn knew he was missing something - a type of therapy, or tool that would help him remove the extremely small-hardened dysfunctions he could feel as a result of his blindness, but could not remove by traditional manual techniques. These were unwanted calcifications common to severe tendon injuries; hardened painful bands characteristic of myofascial adhesions and ropey, disorganized, and extremely painful fibres within dysfunctional muscles and 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 trained in the theory and application of “Extracorporeal Shockwave Therapy (ESWT)”, the same acoustic wave technology used to break apart kidney stones. Over many years since then, Glenn has developed a sixth sense in administering this therapy because of his extraordinary ability to feel the structures that require its’ use. Looking back, having become a shockwave therapy professional was a career-altering decision for Glenn and his Pain Clinic. Today, Glenn uses EMS Shockwave technology which is unmatched by any other manufacturer.  He still had no idea that there was even more to come.

“Changing Lives, One Touch at a Time”

Glenn was born with retinitis pigmentosa, a genetic eye disorder that eventually robs a person of their sight. He had good vision in his earlier years, enjoyed flying small aircraft until his vision deteriorated ending his flying days at the age of 24. Two years later, Glenn gave up his driver’s license beginning the life of a vision-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 accuracy and 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 sensation receptors in every square inch of our fingertips, but most do not really develop sensitivity in these receptors. Those who read Braille do, and this results in a remarkable transformation and heightened sense of touch in a world without sight.

Glenn has taken multiple advanced therapeutic 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 diverse pain conditions developed, he could create a successful approach to permanently resolve 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, ligaments, joint cartilage, and tendons. 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 were not functioning correctly, not getting the proper neurological signal that they normally require. This myoneural training answered all his questions as to Why and How to correct this nervous system-muscle miscommunication fault.

Trigenics is just one of the most recent and immeasurably important discoveries for Glenn since Shockwave Therapy in 2009.

Pulsed Electromagnetic Field Therapy (PEMF) is another new addition to the clinic that, in itself, is probably the most capable of all technologies to force cellular healing to the entire body. The pulsating magnetic field cause cells to vibrate which stimulates their internal biological processes, resulting in the regeneration process and re-establishment of normal metabolic function. Our high-intensity PEMF is unmatched by any other manufacturer.  Glenn is now incorporating PEMF into his chronic pain treatments, along with Trigenics and Shockwave Therapy, to provide the ultimate treatment of chronic pain.

The most recent technologies added to the clinic’s tools is with a Nerve Neurostimulator Rebuilder- to help rebuild damaged nerves, Vascular Infrared Therapy- to help improve circulation in those with circulatory issues and Cardiovascular Enhancement Technology/exercise with oxygen that simulates exercising at an altitude of 10,000 feet. In summary, Glenn has a fully equipped clinic and has developed some very innovative treatment protocols to solve many different chronic pain conditions.

“Robbed of His Sight-Not of His Vision”

Glenn is grateful to have the knowledge and skill to help people from all over North America, resolving issues they cannot seem to get resolved locally, where they live. The Clinic offers almost everyone he treats the chance for a much better quality of life. It is a career driven by empathy and a passion for resolving even the most difficult of issues in people with his blindness, always in the back of his mind. His hope is that someday a healthcare professional like him will do what he does for so many people and find a cure for his own problem.
