What is Active Rehab?
Our Kinesiologists and Physiotherapists are registered treatment providers with ICBC. After a motor vehicle accident our team of our clinicians will design an individualized exercise program to get you moving again safely and with the goal of reducing pain and restoring functional movement.
With each one-on-one session at WestcoastSCI our clinicians used an active-based approach of treatment to prescribe and teach therapeutic exercise. Our therapists will give you guidance, support, motivation and accountability to help you return to the activities you love and empower you with the knowledge to safely continue exercise on your own.
The goal with active rehab is always to
Improve muscular imbalances
Reduce soft tissue pain
Prevent injury occurrence or re injury
Return to work, sport or a lifelong activity
What does a session look like?
Your first appointment will begin with a complete functional movement assessment to assess your range of motion, flexibility, muscle strength and movement patterns. You will then discuss your goals with your clinician.
Your clinician will then create a customized exercise program with you each session to improve your range of motion, flexibility and strength to help correct muscle imbalances or weakness caused by your motor vehicle accident and help you to return to a pain free range of motion. They will help you progress to begin to increase strength to return to your sport, activities and prevent future re injury.
Our team of therapists will communicate with your lawyers and ICBC to provide progress report, and treatment extension requests to ensure that you receive the support you need to return to daily activity and sport pain free.
