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.
