Active rehabilitation is a kinesiology-directed exercise-based approach to injury recovery and prevention. A kinesiologist can help individuals with injury, disability, or medical condition(s) reach their health and fitness goals in a safe and progressive manner.

A kinesiologist can design and implement a program that meet your specific needs, as well as help you enhance your physical performance in exercise, recreation, sport, work, and life in general. The goal of the program is to help transition you from your treatment to your recreational activities or your return to work without further injury. The program will help increase strength, flexibility, function, and general conditioning after an injury. A typical session with a kinesiologist will include injury-specific exercises, core, postural stabilization, general strengthening, and education regarding the principles of active rehabilitation, posture, and proper body mechanics. Ultimately, active rehabilitation aims to provide you with increased resolution of symptoms and independence in recovery through a structured exercise regimen.
With a one-on-one registered kinesiologist, you will receive the safest, most effective way to achieve your health and fitness goals.

Whether your goals are to better your health, improve movement ability, or simply to at attain a better quality of life your kinesiologist will get you there.
