So you’ve been injured. You’re now revising your plans, thinking about the long term and not just the here and now. There will be many adjustments, but you have a plan — you’ll get your life back. You have come to the right place. Active rehab gets your life back because it is all about getting out of bed and into action again sooner than later, while also focusing on what moves you forward in the rest of your life after injury or illness. It is collaborative and comprehensive, where everyone has a say as to how to get their life back through actions that lead to results in real time. In this blog post, we will take a look at why active rehab gets your life back by breaking it down into three key points:
You are in control of your recovery
When you are injured and unsure of how you will move your life forward, it can be easy to ‘lose’ yourself. You may find yourself asking questions like: Who am I right now? What do I want? Where am I going? What do I want to do with the rest of my life? What you need to understand is that the only person that can help you find those answers is you. You need to be in control of your recovery and not let anyone else tell you what you can or cannot do. Active rehab is patient-centered, which means that it is patient-directed instead of doctor-directed. This means that you have the power as the patient to direct the path of your recovery. You are the expert on yourself, and it is your job to let your healthcare providers know what you need to get back to your life.
It is comprehensive
Vancouver active rehab is comprehensive in that it is not just about the therapy that you do in the clinic. It is about the whole you from head to toe, inside out, and outside in. It is about what you eat, how you sleep, and what you think about as well as what you do — the activities that you choose to engage in. It is also about how you live your life — how you manage your job, your relationships with friends and family, your stress levels, and your finances. It is about finding what works for you and what does not work for you. It is about using the skills that you have before your injury to help make you the best version of ‘new you’ when you are done with your treatment.

It is collaborative
Vancouver active rehab is collaborative because it is not just you and your healthcare providers working together to get your life back. It is all of you coming together to find the best way to get you moving again. Everyone has a role to play in your recovery, from your loved ones to your friends, your neighbors, and even your pets. It is about understanding what you want and need from those around you and communicating that in a way that makes it visible for others to see. It is about making sure that everyone who is part of your life knows how they can help you get your life back.

Vancouver active rehab is all about getting you to break out of your comfort zone and do things that you might not have done before your injury or illness. It is about finding new and exciting things that you can do and find joy in even though your life has changed because of your injury or illness.
