About Jason Lomond

Jason Lomond - Health Professional

It’s all about finding the right solutions to your unique problems or desired goals. My endless curiosity has given me a wide-ranging skill set and depth of knowledge that has enabled me to provide my clients with fresh insights, innovative approaches and ultimately more effective results (which is always my goal!)

My treatment philosophy is built on the strong belief that the more autonomy and confidence someone has, the more successful they will be and the higher their health-related quality of life.

Ready to do what you love doing again?

You experience painful movement with most injuries because the muscles, nerves and brain aren’t working properly, not necessarily because of physical damage to the muscles, tendons or joints (although they may contribute to the pain). This disconnect between muscles, nerves and brain cause not only pain but also weakness and the inability to move properly.

While some approaches chase the symptoms of this “disconnect” I use an approach that actually addresses the cause. Using an integrated model of care, I assess how you move and how your muscles, nerves and brain are working to provide a solution to your pain and discomfort. With full, one-on-one attention to every client, I use the most advanced contemporary therapies, including Redcord Neurac, electro-acupuncture and various soft tissue techniques, in a results-oriented approach designed to restore pain-free movement quickly so you can do what you love!

Frequently Asked Questions

Everything you need to know before you start.

Who would benefit from your approach?

Although I see acute injuries, which respond rapidly to many of the people that I see have tried just about everything to get rid of their problems without success. My challenge is to “break the code” of each individual and get them on the road back to better function, less pain, and better quality of life.

This approach works particularly well for people that are limited in their ability to do an activity that they want or love to do and want to be actively involved in their own care. On the other hand, this approach probably isn’t for you if you have pain but it’s not a real big priority for you to change anything at this time and you’re not interested in being actively involved in your own care.

What kind of pain and injuries do you treat?

I’ve had good success with a variety of injuries including:

  • Low back and pelvic pain
  • Neck pain (e.g. whiplash, neck pain with headache)
  • Shoulder and arm pain (e.g. impingement, shoulder instability, tennis and golfers elbow)
  • Leg pain, including hip, knee and ankle (e.g. arthritis and patellofemoral pain)

How do I get started?

After you apply for a consultation you’ll start your journey with a 10-15 minute telephone call with me to determine if or how I can help you. If I feel like I can’t help you, I’ll let you know politely, and do my best to point you in the right direction. If I feel like I can help you then we’ll schedule a clinical assessment. The clinical assessment will consist of a one-on-one discussion of your medical history, your personal goals and an assessment of your physical condition. By the end of the clinical assessment you will have a clear picture of your pain triggers and what we can do about it. An individualized treatment plan is developed for you based on the treatment response from the first three consultations.

What do I need before coming in?

Prior to the visit I will email you an intake form to complete, which will provide me with valuable information in understanding your pain or injury. During the visit, you will be asked to move around. Please bring appropriate attire – you may be more active than you have been in a long time. You also need to bring as much information as you can, including any medical reports.

What do you mean by an active treatment approach?

Active treatment means that it’s designed to address the cause of your problems. It requires the client to participate in some manner that works towards a solution. This includes things such as changing lifestyle habits like eating, sleep hygiene, exercise or stress management. In contrast, passive treatment is having someone do something to you.

It’s not that I don’t use passive approaches, which are effective in the short term, in helping you overcome pain and injury. In fact, I do. For instance, I’ve completed the Contemporary Medical Acupuncture Program and the Advanced Neurofunctional Sports Performance Certificate at McMaster University along with other training in dry needling and manual therapy. It’s just that I use an overall active approach of engaging you in the treatment process as early as possible because the evidence tells us that this produces the best outcomes, which means you can get back to doing what you love! And despite what others may promise or try to sell you, nothing someone does to you or you take, like a medication, can deliver a lasting result. An active approach is the only way to a lasting change

Is this guaranteed to work?

Unfortunately, the truth of the matter is no! Despite the advertisements that “x” or “y” is guaranteed to work there is no such thing. The only guarantee I will make to you is that you will get my very best, and you will have my undivided attention. In addition to bringing my best, I also use several “checks” to ensure that we’re delivering results. The first is the 10-15 min call. From that call I get a general impression of the “triggers” related to your pain or injury, which means I won’t book the assessment if I don’t think I can help you.

I also use an Assess-Treat-Reassess Model, which means that I consistently assess your response to treatment so you will know if this approach is working for you within 3 visits. Although you may not be 100% after the first 3 consultations, clinical experience using this approach shows that some pain reduction and improved function can be achieved after only 1 treatment session.You should know most of the people that I see are clients who have failed with other approaches and do very well with my model. It's okay to be very hopeful and expect a good result – I do!
