ICBC Post Accident Patients
Individuals involved in motor vehicle accidents, who are covered by ICBC, are pre approved for 12 sessions of Kinesiology at NO COST within the first 12 weeks after their accidents.
After this 12 week period, Kinesiology and Active Rehabilitation is still covered at NO COST, however approved sessions must be confirmed by an adjuster before being used.
Kinesiology is a fantastic option for post MVA patients. Working with a Kinesiologist to build a personalized exercise rehab program can drastically improve functional ability, reduce pain, benefit postural awareness and build an exercise routine that will act as a great injury preventative measure after recovery.

Heidi says… “My goal is for clients to develop an exercise based health management strategy that will keep them not only functionally and physically strong but emotionally and mentally strong; to give them confidence in being committed to a healthy exercise habit that is both preventative and proactive. Whether they come to see me for an exercise program to lose weight or because they have been in a motor vehicle accident, I want my clients to feel internally motivated that they can make a difference when they are committed to an exercise program.”
