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.
