About Us

Our Approach

The location of your pain may not necessarily be the source of your pain. At Unpain Clinic, we first look for signs of imbalance with the kinetic chain that could be contributing to your injury. We will treat the injury AND do our best to prevent its recurrence.

Pain is only
a symptom

Tissues can become painful in areas that are in no way related to the underlying cause of the problem. It is important to target the source of the condition as well as the symptoms. If only symptoms are treated, they will most likely return, for the very same reasons they occurred the first time. It is not unusual for a new shoulder problem to be the result of an old knee injury. Really!

Shockwave treatments at Unpain are seldom the same from patient to patient because the combination of individual bodies, behaviours and lifestyles are always unique. During the initial visit, your therapist will assess your pain while also looking for all potential causes. Treatment is provided on the first visit. In most cases, clients receive 3 treatments over 3 weeks, followed by a 6-week recovery period. Healing is still occurring during this time. If pain persists after 6 weeks, a 4th session may be required.

One of the greatest differentiators about our work is that Unpain Clinic clients truly get better. The majority don’t need to return for the same condition after their course of treatments is complete. It’s referrals from delighted clients and not ongoing treatments that make us successful!

He is always looking for new ways to improve healing and uses many tools in his toolbox to assess and treat stubborn conditions. Neurokinetic Training (NKT) as well as Amino BioFrequency (ANF) Therapy are just a couple of techniques he has added to his treatment repertoire in recent years. Uran received his Canadian Registered Massage Therapist designation from MH Vicars School with 2200 hours in 2011. With an extensive education and years of experience in both fields, he is extremely qualified in determining client needs.

Uran's humble beginnings, outgoing personality and excellent success record with complex pain have been a driving force in the growth of Remedial Wellness and the birth of Unpain Clinic & I Love Shockwave Inc. The clinics expanded from two people to twenty, from one shockwave device to nine and from one location to two since 2012. The level of service provided by Uran has contributed to the progress of a company that set out to make a profound difference in the lives of most of its patients – and succeeded.
