Active Rehab

At PhysioWorks, our physiotherapists offer active rehabilitation which is a program in which exercise and education are the foundations for therapy.

What is it?

Clients can have their physiotherapist train them in one on one sessions in our fully equipped gym. At PhysioWorks, each training program is designed and carried out by a registered physiotherapist. We are passionate about providing safe, dynamic, and functional active rehabilitation in Vancouver. Our physiotherapists continually take supplementary courses and stay up to date with the latest research in the field of exercise science. As physiotherapists, they are able to combine their in-depth knowledge of anatomy and biomechanics with exercise principles, to provide you with a comprehensive exercise program designed specifically to meet your goals. Whether you want to rehabilitate an injury, increase your performance, prevent injury, or simply maintain a healthy lifestyle, you can trust our physiotherapists to safely and effectively get you there.

On your first visit

On your first visit, the focus will be on completing a thorough assessment of your movement patterns, baseline strength and flexibility, and establishing your training goals. This will allow our physiotherapists to design a program that is safe and effective for you. Your program can include elements of core strengthening, functional training, cardiovascular endurance, postural re-education and flexibility. On your subsequent visits, your physiotherapist will continually re-assess your program and make the necessary changes to help keep you on track and achieve your goals.


Exercise and conditioning is essential to recovering from trauma.

ICBC will cover active rehabilitation in some cases. If you have been in a car accident and have ICBC insurance coverage, ask your adjuster if you qualify for this service.


Running Assessments

At PhysioWorks, our video gait analysis consists of filming you running on the treadmill with views from the back and side.

Our physiotherapists are able to analyze your entire gait pattern and identify the factors contributing to your injury. Your physiotherapist will provide recommendations on gait correction, preventative exercise and footwear. You will be provided a summary of the analysis and an exercise program. Depending on your goals, running cues and workouts can also be made by your physiotherapist.


Pre/Post Natal

Many changes occur in a woman's body as she goes through pregnancy, labour, and delivery.

Some issues can arise slowly over several months, and some acutely from trauma during labour and delivery. It should not be considered “normal” to have low back pain during pregnancy or after delivery. Our physiotherapists can aid in the reduction and prevention of current pain through movement re-education and specific stabilization exercises. At PhysioWorks, a physiotherapist can design a safe exercise program to prevent the development of chronic issues, and remain active through this chapter of life.


Perfomance Traning

At PhysioWorks, a registered physiotherapist can work with you one-on-one guiding you through a personalized fitness program to enhance your return to sport, improve your athletic performance, or to simply stay healthy and reduce the risk of injury.

The program will be tailored to optimize your body’s performance in the specific activities you participate in. Your physiotherapist will come alongside you and work with you to achieve more than you thought you were capable of.
