Active Rehab

Active rehabilitation programs are one-on-one physiotherapist-guided exercise programs for any person requiring active therapy.  These programs are typically structured as “mini” personal training sessions in our gym.

Active rehab is most commonly done for patients injured in motor vehicle accidents.  These exercise sessions can be done concurrently with physiotherapy, massage therapy, and/or chiropractor treatment, and are typically funded 100% by ICBC (in most cases) with no additional cost to you.  We also commonly perform active rehab programs for patients who may need reconditioning due to significant absence from physical activity due to events such as surgery, pregnancy, etc.

Your physiotherapist will help determine if you are appropriate for an active rehab program by completing a thorough assessment of your condition, and discussing your suitability with your family doctor.  The goal of active rehab is to help you return to daily activities at home, at work, and recreationally.  Our active rehab programs are mostly based out of our South Surrey location, to best utilize the array of exercise equipment on site.

If you have questions about our active rehab program, or think you may be an appropriate candidate for exercise-based therapy, give us a call.  If it’s for an ICBC claim, we’ll liaise with your family doctor and ICBC to get the program going for you.

COVID 19 NOTICE

Update: July 1, 2021

As the Province of BC enters Step 3 of the restart plan, things will mostly remain status quo at PhysioLife.  Changes are as follows:

  1. based on guidelines published by the College of Massage Therapists of BC, masks inside massage treatment rooms are no longer mandatory.  Masks do not need to be worn if and only if both patient and therapist mutually agree.  If you would like your therapist to wear a mask, they will.  If your therapist would like their patients to wear a mask, we kindly ask for your cooperation.  Masks must still be worn in all common areas of the clinic, so please keep bringing your masks!
  2. Our waiting room will be open on a limited basis (yay!)

All other COVID-19/communicable disease guidelines remain in place, and can be viewed on our website.  Our profession is governed by the College of Physical Therapists of BC and the College of Massage therapists of BC.  The rules and regulations passed down from these Colleges supersede any WorkSafeBC requirements which are imposed on the general population.  Therefore, we can only relax restrictions once our Colleges approve.  Our setting is a healthcare setting which is a high risk environment, even if masks are worn.  As the summer progresses, we hope to receive new guidance from our Colleges which will allow us to ease some of our other protocols.  However, we will only do so if we believe it will not interfere with the health and safety of our therapists, staff, and patients.

Thank you for your continued support.  We hope everyone stays healthy.
