Active rehabilitation program is a comprehensive exercise program designed by an experienced Registered Kinesiologist to help patient recover from traumatic incidents such as motor vehicle accident (MVA), work related injury and sport injury. Patients can register for Active Rehab session through a direct referral from ICBC, WSBC, therapists, or lawyers.
The program includes an initial written report which closely assesses patient’s physical functioning as well as his/her day-to-day physical demand. Once registered, an individualized exercise program is designed by continuously communicating with a therapist.
The main purpose of Active Rehab is to enhance daily functioning of a patient by reducing pain and discomfort and by increasing movement efficiency. Patients can benefit not only from one-on-one interactive advising from a Kinesiologist but through an education on exercises that can be incorporated at home alone.
