The Kinesiology / Active Rehab Process
Phase 1 – Initial Assessment
During your initial assessment, your kinesiologist will ask you about your nutrition, sleeping, and recreational habits, as well as what you do for work and your chief complaint. They will also thoroughly complete an assessment of your current condition or injury by utilizing a number of tests (ex. joint range of motion testing, manual muscle test). Goals will be discussed during the assessment and a tailored treatment plan will be made accordingly.
Phase 2 – Customized Treatment & Recovery Plan
Depending on the goals, and what was discussed in the initial assessment your kinesiologist will decide upon a treatment plan including the frequency, and duration of which to attend. Exercise prescription and education is what is focused on during the treatment plan as well as gradually progressing the exercises (intensity, frequency, volume etc). We recommend bringing comfortable workout attire to all of your kinesiology visits.
Phase 3 – The At-Home Program
It is important to work on your exercises at home or in a gym-like setting. Your kinesiologist will provide you with an at-home exercise program by utilizing Physitrack – a digital platform where fully narrated exercise videos are delivered straight to your smartphone or computer. These exercises will be hand-picked by your kinesiologist to assure you are doing the correct movements.
Phase 4 – Independence
Discharge from the Active Rehab program is dependent on how things are progressing. Getting back to regular function and having the knowledge from our movement specialists will eventually lead you to complete independence, which is always the main goal.
