Active Rehab Programs

Are you suffering from an injury you sustained in a car accident? Are you unable to perform routine activities due to pain and require therapy? Is a fear of re-injury preventing you from returning to sport or other activities? At Movéo Sport and Rehabilitation Centre, we can help. Our experienced kinesiologists specialize in active rehab and exercise therapy to help individuals recover from injuries received in a motor vehicle accident.

What is active rehab?

Active rehabilitation is an exercise-based treatment that involves the client’s active participation in their recovery. Sessions are tailored to the individual by taking into consideration their exercise background, current fitness level,  lifestyle, goals, and health history.  Each session consists of a blend of exercises to improve body awareness, range of motion, flexibility, strength, and cardiovascular fitness.

Active rehabilitation aims to restore function and strength to the injured areas of the body and to empower individuals to return to work, sports, and daily life activities.

What should you expect from active rehab?


Each active rehab program is a series of customized sessions geared at improving an individual’s overall strength, mobility, flexibility, endurance and core stability. A registered kinesiologist designs a personalized,goal-oriented roadmap to recovery based on the functional assessment and needs of each client. Assessments help determine the performance level of a client and the most effective treatment plan.

Kinesiologists work with clients on a one-to-one basis in sessions ranging from 30 to 60 minutes in length. Clients are continually assessed during the program should adjustments be needed to meet the desired goal. Individual programs can last as little as a few months to as long as a few years, depending on the progress of the client.

The cost of your active rehab program can be directly billed to ICBC.
