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.

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.
