How can our kinesiologist help you?
Have you been struggling to get back to work or the recreational activities you enjoy? We have the expertise to safely help you manage pain while regaining the strength and confidence to move with ease. Your active rehabilitation program is conducted by practicing Kinesiologists who are recognized with extended health benefit providers including ICBC.
Have you recently been in a car accident?
We understand that after injury people need guidance to help improve their strength and mobility. During an active rehabilitation program, your kinesiologist with first complete a detailed assessment and then select exercises appropriate to your condition and abilities help you return to work, recreation or activities of daily living and continue to lead an independent and active life.
How does the process work?
Navigating the claims process while healing can be difficult and confusing. The goal of our active rehabilitation programs are to make sure that you are able to focus on getting stronger and moving with less pain. We want you to focus on your recovery. Think of us as one of your advocates. We support you by communicating with your doctor, lawyer, claims adjuster and other healthcare professionals involved in your care.
What is Active Rehabilitation?
During our active rehabilitation programs, our Kinesiologists work with other allied health care professionals to create a program of exercise to strengthen weak muscles and re-balance your body. Our philosophy is that your body is a linked, interconnected and reactive system which you can have positive influence on.
For example, a rotator cuff injury could be a result of something going on in the neck or instability in the shoulder joint or a chronic knee problem could be due to instability in the hips or ankle.
How to get started with my rehab program?
Under our supervision, you will be taught how to complete each exercise in a proper and progressive manner to maximize your recovery and prevent re-injury. We also have a number of health care professionals to refer you to when we feel that you need further treatment outside of our abilities.
A complete history is taken during your initial assessment. This includes past injuries and surgeries which affect the way you move today. We then complete some video analysis and other manual tests. Our goal is to determine the root of your injury instead of treating the symptom.
When can I get started?
Get started today without an referral by paying privately before your active rehabilitation is approved by ICBC. Keep your receipts and forward them to ICBC.
