Active Rehabilitation

What is Active Rehabilitation?:

An individualized program designed by a heath care professional to return clients back to work, sport and daily activities.

Structure:

Following a thorough assessment by one of the Physiotherapists or Chiropractors a treatment plan consisting of Kinesiology sessions will be devised.

Sessions will take place 2 to 5 days per week for 30 minutes to 2 hours.
