Once approved by ICBC for active rehabilitation, you may book an appointment with one of the registered Kinesiologists. The Kinesiologists at Champlain Square Physiotherapy specialize in rehabilitating your soft-tissue injuries through a progressive, one-on-one program of core stability, strengthening, stretching, and postural adjustments. We begin with a detailed injury assessment, followed by an active rehabilitation plan specific to each individual. Our goal is to identify areas of weakness and restriction followed by assigning appropriate exercises and functional activities in order to ensure safe recovery. The program is designed to assist you with returning to your pre-injury jobs and/or activities.
Gradual Return to Work Programs (GRTW)
If you were employed during the time of your motor vehicle accident (MVA), you may potentially be approved for a gradual return to work program. The program suggests the most effective way of ensuring a safe return to your pre-injury job. In conjunction with all stakeholders, the Kinesiologist will create a GRTW plan to help facilitate a safe and durable return to work. The Kinesiologist will teach pain management techniques by educating you on the benefits of stretch breaks, icing, and safe lifting techniques. The Kinesiologist will also monitor the GRTW and make amendments as necessary based on the clients’ progress.
