If you’re injured in a car accident, you may be wondering what your next steps are. At ICBC, we want to help you recover as quickly as possible, which is why we offer Active Rehab Services. These services are designed to help you regain your strength and mobility, so you can get back to your life.
What is Active Rehabilitation?
Active rehabilitation is a process that helps people regain their functional abilities after an injury or surgery. It is often used in combination with other forms of treatment, such as physiotherapy or occupational therapy.
Active rehabilitation usually starts with a comprehensive assessment by a kinesiologist. This assessment will identify the specific impairments and limitations that need to be addressed. The kinesiologist will then design an individualized program of exercises and activities to help the person regain their strength, flexibility, and endurance.
The goal of active rehabilitation is to help the person return to their previous level of function as soon as possible. In some cases, this may mean returning to work or sport. In other cases, it may simply mean regaining the ability to perform everyday activities without pain or fatigue.
What are the benefits of Active Rehabilitation?
Active rehabilitation is a process that helps people recovering from an injury or surgery regain their strength and mobility. It can be done through exercises, stretching, and other activities.
Active rehabilitation is often recommended by kinesiologists as it has many benefits. These benefits include:
- Improving recovery time: Active rehabilitation helps to improve the speed of your recovery by helping to repair damaged tissue and promoting blood flow to the area. This can help to reduce swelling, pain, and stiffness.
- Increasing strength and flexibility: Strength and flexibility are important for regaining full range of motion after an injury. Active rehabilitation helps to gradually increase these, which reduces the risk of further injuries.
- Improving function: By improving strength, flexibility, and range of motion, active rehabilitation also helps improve your overall function.

How to get started with ICBC Active Rehab Services
First, you’ll need a referral from your kinesiologist. Once you have that, you can book an appointment.
During your first appointment, the kinesiologist will assess your injury and develop a treatment plan. This may involve exercises, manual therapy, and education on how to prevent further injuries.
You can expect to see some improvements after just one or two sessions. However, the number of sessions you’ll need will depend on the severity of your injury.
