Have you been in a car accident?
All of our active rehabilitation services are overseen by trained Kinesiologists. Our programs provide assessment and treatment services for the rehabilitation of people suffering from physical injuries sustained at work, in automobile collisions, in sports and other life activities. The primary service is active rehabilitation, which consists of the assessment of physical function followed by the implementation and progression of a specifically structured and individually tailored exercise program to enhance and promote the safe and dependable return to an individual’s regular life activities. Kinesiologists may also perform specialized services such as biomechanicial analysis of injury mechanisms, conduct job demands analysis and functional capacity evaluations in relation to an individual’s occupational requirements.
Did you know that Active Rehab sessions can get you back to feeling normal quickly?
Active Rehab is the final stage of rehabilitation leading you back to being fully functional and beyond.
Our qualified health and fitness professionals will guide you each step of the way and support you with a wide array of resources including Active Rehab programs for you to perform on your own as well as exercise technique videos and fitness equipment.
Active Rehab picks up where your physician, chiropractor or physiotherapist leaves off and helps get you back to functioning normally. If you’ve been receiving treatments from a health care provider post-accident, be sure to ask them to speak with your ICBC adjuster for a possible referral to Active Rehab services with Function Health Club. If approved, ICBC may either fully or partially cover these treatments.

What can you expect from Active Rehab?
Knowledge is power and with that in mind our biggest focus in our Active Rehab services is to educate you on how your body works. Everything from the anatomy of your musculature to proper posture and alignment when sitting, standing and lifting. We will also teach you the proper technique for stretching, self-massage and of course, exercises. The focus of the Active Rehab sessions is to bring your body back to normal function thus reducing pain and irritation in your physique.
What will you receive with Active Rehab?
We want to equip you with the knowledge and resources so you can be successful. With that in mind we have created an entire database of exercise and stretching technique videos on our youtube channel. All Active rehab clients will receive program cards which clearly lay out workouts that the client can do on their own along with weblinks to technique videos for each exercise.
We can also provide our Active Rehab clients with an assortment of small, portable fitness equipment that we refer to as the rehab kit. This kit includes: yoga mat, stability ball, theraband, tiger tail, foam roller and lacrosse ball. The workouts that we give our Active rehab clients utilize these pieces of equipment and so we do our best to give you everything you need.
If you’re interested in taking part in our Active rehab services please talk to your healthcare provider (physician, chiropractor, physiotherapist) and ask them to speak with your ICBC adjuster about a referral to Active Rehab. Alternatively you can ask your healthcare provider to contact us directly to make the arrangements.
Before going to Function Health Club I went to other active rehab programs offered by physiotherapists and personal trainers referred by my family doctor after my two car accidents in 2011 and 2012. I didn’t find much help from those programs and so I became quite skeptical about trying other active rehab programs. However, after taking a few sessions at Function Health and Fitness I could tell the difference. They performed a detailed assessment before providing me with a rehab program and they also listened to my feedback after training sessions to make sure my injuries wouldn’t get worse. They also sent me links of youtube videos to help me follow the rehab routines when I was training on my own. They also took logs and looked at my progression. Active Rehab at Function Health Club really helps me in cope with my injuries after two car accidents and has improved my daily performance.”
My active rehab experience with Function Health Club has been such an amazing relieve and recovery of my car accident injuries. They are extremely knowledgable and caring to their clients’ needs. Their expertise and training motivates and makes me look forward to my training sessions. I am feeling stronger and am happy to see there is a road to recovery for my injuries. I would highly recommend Function Health Club.
I was in a major car accident about a year ago. I was referred to Function Health Club by my chiropractor for an ICBC approved rehab program. I concluded 17 rehab trainer sessions with them and was very impressed with their knowledge and the way they showed all the exercises. They closely supervised me and made sure I was doing everything correctly. They knew the level to start me at and when the time to advance was. After the 17 sessions, I was feeling stronger and wanted to continue at the gym so I became a member. I have improved a lot since the accident and Function Health Club has had a great part in that. I look forward to continuing my rehab and hope to get back to 100%.
I have referred several of my ICBC patients to Function for Active Rehabilitation, to complement the chiropractic treatments I provide. Function Health Club is professional, approachable, courteous, and extremely knowledgeable in rehabilitative care, so that my patients can return to their normal activities with a much reduced risk of re-injury. I will definitely continue to refer patients to Function for the outstanding service they provide.
With great pleasure I write this letter of recommendation to Function Health Club and all associated staff. I met Caroline and Jeff at the one year open house celebration. I live close by the gym but had never been inside. Function Health Club is what I consider to be a boutique fitness centre; clean, spacious, well lit and a great assortment of equipment.
Caroline and Jeff have a special way about them. They are both great communicators and have such a genuine positive demeanour. I could tell quickly that working with them and referring patients to their facility would be an easy and smart decision. Even the name “function” resonates with the way I educate and help my patients through Chiropractic care. All staff are well educated and also share that passion and ability with to connect clients with the health, fitness and wellness lifestyle. I am impressed with them all!
My friends and patients I have referred all say the same thing. Great experience! Many of my patients have sustained a motor vehicle accident and require Active Rehab services in addition to chiropractic and massage therapy. Headquartered by Jeff Doyle, patients are treated well, educated and specific rehabilitation plans are well implemented toward their recovery. Jeff also communicates directly with ICBC to get treatment plan approval and provides assessment and follow up reports as requested.
I am very appreciative of working with Function Health Club and look forward to continued efforts and we promote healthier lifestyles and wellness habits throughout Vancouver.
