Active Rehab & Exercise Rehabilitation

Do you have a new injury and can’t seem to get past that recovery plateau preventing

you from regaining full function and mobility? Or do you have an old nagging injury

that just keeps popping back up? Maybe you have a disability or condition that has

forced you to manage pain and the ongoing restrictions you are faced with on a daily

basis. Are you pregnant or postpartum and unsure of safe and effective exercises to

get you feeling your best?

Recovery can be difficult, but with the right tools and support we can help get you on

the right path to living your life and back to the activities you love!

Physiotherapy is commonly utilized immediately after an injury to overcome major

challenges and regain mobility. Active rehab helps patients safely transition from their

treatments to their pre-injury lifestyle.

Active rehab or exercise rehabilitation is an evidence-based practice used to help

individuals recover from injuries, manage pain and chronic conditions, prevent re-injury,

enhance performance, and ultimately improve your quality of life.
