WHAT IS ACTIVE REHABILITATION?
Active Rehabilitation is a specific set of exercises designed to restore loss of functional mobility after an injury. We provide Active Rehabilitation services with our Kinesiologists in a nearby community center gym or at your home after assessments and treatments plans have been outlined by our Occupational Therapists.
Exercises with safe movements and proper body mechanics are taught to improve functional mobility and reach rehabilitation goals. Goals could include exercises to return to a normal lifestyle or a gradual return to work program or to restore the ability to engage in a specific activity.
