Regain Function, Strength & Flexibility with our Registered Kinesiologists
After your accident, active rehab is the “final lap” of your recovery. If you’re suffering from injury or pain after a car crash, perhaps you’re already seeking physiotherapy and massage treatment. Active rehab can be the perfect compliment to your routine. Oftentimes your physiotherapist will recommend beginning an active rehab program after several physiotherapy sessions have assisted your injury recovery, and when you are ready for strengthening.
A Kinesiologist is a graduate of a university Bachelors program in Human Kinetics. Studying physical activity, biomechanics and its impact on overall health and quality of life. Implementing the use of corrective exercises and stretching to help combat muscular imbalances.
The main goal of a Kinesiology session is to help you regain function and return to regular life activities. If you have an injury or disability that has kept you from enjoying all that life has to offer. Our professional Kinesiologists will collaborate with your healthcare team to assist with recovery from acute or chronic injury or post-surgical rehabilitation. Providing you with a customized recovery plan to ensure you are back on track quickly and safely.
Kinesiology may be fully or partially covered by ICBC or other private insurance providers. If you have any questions, call us today and our staff will be happy to help you.
If you were in a car accident on or after April 1, 2019, you should be approved for 12 active rehabilitation sessions with a Kinesiologist billed directly to ICBC. If your accident was prior to April 1st, don’t worry: you will just need to get approval from ICBC for treatment first.

What do our patients have to say?
“Rajan my trainer and kinesiologist, has been instrumental in significantly improving the strength and health of my back. After a traumatic car accident a few years back, I started to believe that living in pain would be my new normal. But Rajans expertise and personalized approach have been truly commendable.
I would highly recommend Genuine Athletics & Rehabilitation to anyone looking for a genuine personal trainer and kinesiologist.”
“Genuine Athletics & Rehabilitation provides a good environment and equipment. The owner Jason is kind and knowledgeable, and all trainers and therapists are very professional and supportive. Their facility is maintained very clean and nice. In particular, I have been so happy working with Rajan, the exceptional kinesiologist during my recovery from an accident. His expertise, kindness, motivation, and empathy have been invaluable throughout my healing journey. I highly recommend his services to anyone in need of professional and compassionate care during the rehabilitation. Rajan truly makes a difference in the lives of his clients!”
“I’ve never seen a gym like this. Its very unique, has everything you need, and its always very clean. Everyone here is welcoming, friendly and very helpful.
I first inquired to work with a personal trainer for my back pain and other body goals. But was reccomended to work with a Kinesioligist first to build my foundational knowledge. I’m glad I did because Rajan has been a great help in pushing me to reach my best results. I highly reccomend Genuine Athletics!”
