The Customized Active Rehabilitation (CAR) program is an evidence based multi-disciplinary assessment and treatment program for non-WSBC clients with physical injuries, chronic conditions or recovering from medical diagnoses with an aim to assisting them to return to function and work in a timely manner.
It is designed to treat almost all forms of physical and medical health issues affecting function.
The basic program involves Physiotherapist and Kinesiologist. However, we do offer provisions for adding a psychologist to this program to assist with managing emotional sequela as well as Occupational Therapist for cognitive deficits, or complex return to work scenarios.
Who is It For?
This service can be accessed by private pay clients, but most frequently will be utilized by LTD companies, RCMP, or other employers via referral.
>If you are interested in the CAR program, and not actively being referred by your insurance provider, please reach out to them directly first to ask about your coverage eligibility.
What to Expect
The assessment provides:
- screening and analysis of history of presenting conditioning,
- current symptom profile,
- treatments and investigations to date,
- objective measurement systems implicated in one’s injury,
- their functional level compared to critical job demands,
- and ensuring they are safe to participate in an active rehabilitation program.
Treatment is evidence based, providing:
- injury specific exercises,
- functional restoration,
- and building endurance for activity in a well-supported environment with knowledgeable clinicians.
Programs can consist of education classes, group walks, tension reduction training, individualized gym programs, work simulation, structured activity reintegration at home and in the community.
Treatments, schedules and timeframes are all tailored to an individual’s needs.
The program is designed to progress in hours and days over the duration of a client’s program to ready a person to begin a gradual return to work (GRTW) at the conclusion of their clinic time.
GRTW planning and implementation will be completed as part of the program and the client will typically be requested to attend the clinic to monitor throughout their GRTW.
The CAR program service can be provided out of any of the Back in Motion clinics across Metro Vancouver or Southern Vancouver Island:
- Newton (Surrey)

“I go to Eric (RMT) for deep tissue massage. He is excellent at getting the job done in helping me get rid of my stress, soreness, aches, and pains in my body so I can go back to my normal (or even my best) mobility…definitely recommend Eric if you want a REAL GOOD massage! As for me, I really get what I want (deep tissue massage). You will definitely not be wasting time and feel shortchanged with Eric!” - Daisy
“[The] best RMT that I have ever been to. He completes an assessment before starting each treatment to focus on individual needs. He is professional and is thorough. I would recommend Eric to anyone looking for an RMT.” - Kristina
“After my MVA, I experienced a lot of neck/shoulder/back pain. Thankfully, I found Eric. Eric is very knowledgeable and actually listens to where I’m having the most discomfort. His assessments are accurate and he knows exactly how to relieve my pain. (The soothing music he plays and warm, comfortable massage table doesn’t hurt either). Eric has been so encouraging throughout this whole process, which provides really great energy! Having Eric for RMT has been a lifesaver! I certainly didn’t think I would be feeling relief from the pain this quickly. I am feeling more like myself and becoming excited that I’ll be able to work soon again. 10/10 would recommend.” - Chelsea

“Jessica is WONDERFUL! After just 1 session with Jessica, I finally have any good results (and great results at that!). I have fought to find answers from my GP or specialist for over a year with absolutely no answers, told that I need to change my career. Now I feel like with some direction and hard work, I’ll be stronger than ever…definitely worth it.” - Rachael
“I’ve been to so many physio places and no one was able to make much of a difference for me until I came here and went to see Jessica. She personalizes each treatment session and can use acupuncture as well as other methods. She helped to point me in the right direction with my health care. So grateful to have found her!” - Nina
