1-on-1 guided exercise therapy with a kinesiologist will identify areas of weakness and restriction in order to ensure a speedy recovery. Ideal candidates for kinesiology are those who have been injured in a motor vehicle accident, individuals with low back pain, mild sports injuries, or anyone interested in maximizing their health and fitness. In some cases, kinesiology sessions can be either fully or partially covered by ICBC or other private insurance companies to assist on your recovery process. If your injury has kept you from work or hobby, your kinesiologist will work with you to develop a customized plan that gets you back to work or hobby in a confident and timely manner.
If your injuries are extensive and have kept you from returning to work, or if other forms of therapy have failed, you may be a candidate for a customized rehabilitation program. Ask your doctor if a multidisciplinary rehab program is right for you.
Sports Rehab Modalities
No matter what your level of physical activity is, you want to return to your favourite physical activity and minimize your risk of re-triggering an injury. At Back in Motion Physiotherapy, our sports rehab clinicians perform a full exam of your biomechanical joints, ligaments, muscles, tendons and nerves to pinpoint exactly what ails you and how to best overcome it.
We’ll take an evaluation of your physical history, taking note of any injuries you’ve had throughout your life that could reoccur as you age and remain active. We offer the Graston Technique which has helped Michael Phelps excel, shockwave therapy, athletic taping and neuromuscular stimulation for slow-to-react muscles. With our help, you can return to your sport of choice stronger and more agile than ever before!
Orthotics are inserts for your shoes that help correct structural problems in the foot like high arches or flat feet. They can optimize the biomechanics of your feet, to help ease extra stress and strain on your body from poor distribution of weight and other conditions. If your feet don’t carry and transfer your weight properly, it can result in pain in your knees, hips, back and in some cases neck pain. Orthotics can also be helpful with structural conditions that can lead to calluses, corns, hammer toes, bunions and many other painful foot conditions. There are many ‘over the counter’ options, but nothing compares to having an assessment from a physiotherapist with extensive knowledge in custom orthotics. When used appropriately, they can be very effective in making standing, walking and running easier and enjoyable again!
