What is Active Rehab?
Active rehabilitation treatments are one-on-one sessions with a certified kinesiologist, the most knowledgeable health professionals for overseeing exercise therapy.
Your trainer will begin by providing stretches and exercises designed to address your unique injuries, pool programs are also an option for acute injuries. As your condition improves, your program will adapt to meet your needs. This will also provide you with the education you need to continue your exercises independently, so you know you will be set up for long-term success!
Active Rehab works to…
- Restore range of motion by addressing soft tissue injuries.
- Improve overall posture and body mechanics.
- Reduce muscular imbalance via targeted strengthening.
- Increase stability, flexibility, and exercise tolerance through gentle physical conditioning.
- Decrease whole body pain and discomfort, especially following a motor vehicle accident.
- Manage chronic or new sports injuries.
Doctors Prefer Active Rehab!
While you should always consult your physician before increasing activity, family doctors increasingly recommend active rehabilitation. A common misconception is that exercise should be avoided to prevent injury aggravation, but the opposite is true!
For example, Dr. Stephen Hoschuler, co-founder and orthopedic surgeon with the Texas Back Institute writes: “Controlled, gradual, and progressive exercise, rather than inactivity and bed rest, most often provides the best long-term solution for reducing back pain.”
