Melissa is a born and raised girl from Cloverdale, BC. She grew up playing soccer and baseball, and has two brothers who play ice hockey. So naturally, Melissa was either at the ice rink or on a soccer field somewhere. She is near finished completing her degree in Kinesiology at The University of the Fraser Valley. Her interests lie in learning about injury and rehabilitation. Having had two knee injuries herself, Melissa hopes to one-day help others in their return to play rehabilitation. In her free time, she enjoys adventuring and hiking outdoors with her other half and new puppy. Melissa is also a devoted sports fan to the Toronto Blue Jays, Toronto Raptors, and Vancouver Whitecaps. Melissa is very excited to join the Moveo Team in Walnut Grove.
What is Active Rehabilitation?:
An individualized program designed by a heath care professional to return clients back to work, sport and daily activities.
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.
The program will consist of:
• Restoring range of motion and reducing pain
• Improving posture and muscular imbalances by a mix of specific strengthening and stretching
• Functional core training, cardiovascular training and improving overall strength
• Improving balance, proprioception and flexibility
• Work specific exercises
The goal is to ensure our clients receive the knowledge base and tools to continue at home or gym and avoid future injuries.
The program is open to all clients who would benefit from an active approach to injury rehabilitation, including those that have sustained a motor vehicle accident (ICBC Claim) or work place injury (WCB Claim).
