An Active Rehab Program is an exercise-based treatment plan focused on correcting body mechanics, restoring mobility, and improving strength. Registered Kinesiologists use evidence-based knowledge to implement progressive exercises and range of motion techniques to help manage and improve the injuries you have sustained. Active rehab helps with injuries to the joints and soft tissue sprains and strains. This includes back and neck pain, shoulder dysfunctions, balance issues, and many more.
Please provide us with your claim details outlined in our referrals page and we will seek approval from ICBC for you to begin an Active Rehab Program. Once approved, we will contact you to arrange an appointment at one of our gym partners. You are pre-approved for 12 sessions of Active Rehab within the first 12 weeks of your accident.
If you’ve been in a crash and need medical care, ICBC Accident Benefits help you access the services you need to recover, no matter who is responsible (at fault) in the crash. Individuals are pre-approved for 12 sessions of active rehab within the first 12 weeks of their accident. If you require treatment beyond 12 weeks after an accident, we would have to request to extend your treatment directly from your claim representative. Visit our referrals page and provide us with the necessary information and we will contact your claim representative on your behalf.
Yes, depending on the recommendations by your physician and provided that you find all your other therapies beneficial. An Active Rehab Program works well in conjunction with other treatments such as physiotherapy, massage therapy, and chiropractic treatments. If necessary, our team will communicate with other practitioners to ensure your recovery remains focused and effective.
The session will vary depending on the injuries you sustained and your functional capacity. During your first session, our Kinesiologist will perform a functional assessment and discuss with you a treatment plan customized to your needs. Next, your Kinesiologist will instruct and teach you various exercises and stretches that pertain to your specific injuries and dysfunctions. You would be provided with an online exercise program based on all the exercises performed during the session. This will allow you to practice your prescribed exercises independently either at home or at the gym.
Each session is typically 50-60 minutes in length with 45 minutes of one-on-one instructional time with your Kinesiologist. Depending on your injuries, functional limitations, and your ability to work, program length usually range from 12-24 sessions. After your initial assessment and consultation, your Kinesiologist will create a personalized treatment plan and schedule that optimizes your recovery based on your condition and availability.
