ICBC Active Rehabilitation
What is ICBC Active Rehabilitation?
ICBC active rehabilitation is a customized exercise program designed to help you recover as quick as possible from a motor vehicle accident. This type of therapy is suitable for people who are still experiencing ongoing physical issues from a car accident, but no longer require acute care.
Active rehabilitation treatments are administered by a Registered Physiotherapist or Kinesiologist. These healthcare professionals are university educated and licensed by their respective college or association. They are also considered recognized treatment providers by ICBC. As a result, ICBC funds active rehabilitation programs for eligible ICBC clients.
How can ICBC Active Rehabilitation help you?
ICBC active rehabilitation is the key to an effective recovery. A well planned and executed treatment plan will help you relieve pain, regain postural strength, and improve muscle endurance, so you can get back to work and the activities you love sooner.
Who administers an ICBC Active Rehabilitation program?
Registered Physiotherapists or Kinesiologists create and implement personalized active rehab programs. During your one-on-one sessions, your therapist will target areas most affected by your accident using full body activities, stretching, and cardio training techniques. Your therapist will also put together an at-home exercise plan for you, giving you the tools you need to independently manage your injury.
What steps are required to start an ICBC Active Rehabilitation program?
- See your doctor and ask for a referral note for active rehabilitation.
- Once you receive that, please call our clinic at 604-437-7777. You will have to give our admin staff a number of details including your adjuster’s contact information, lawyer’s contact information (if you have one), and ICBC claim number. We’ll also need you to email or fax your referral note to us.
- We will get in touch with your adjuster and request permission to have you assessed by our therapist. If we get the green light, we’ll contact you to set up your first appointment.
- After your initial assessment, your therapist will go back to your adjuster with a recommendation including the number of sessions required and duration of your program.
