What is ICBC Active Rehab?
Active rehabilitation is a form of physical therapy designed to help you reduce pain, increase range of motion and restore strength through movement. After your accident, active rehab is the “final lap” of your recovery, administred by a registered Kinesiologist. If you’re suffering from injury or pain after a car crash, perhaps you’re already seeking physiotherapy, chiropratic and/or 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 too assist your rate of recovery, and safely strengthening your body after injury.
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.
