Visiting Active Recovery was crucial in my recovery with a physical rehabilitative approach. The initial intake is important for every new injury and will come here again if the need arises. My hand and elbow are fully recovered and can't recommend this place enough. Thank you Madeline and the team!

Madeline supported me in my recovery from two broken elbows. With her help I was able to push my range of motion and general comfort a lot further than I expected I would be able to. She was professional, friendly, knowledgeable, and had great evening availability. Her progressive strengthening routines helped build my strength up to where it was prior to my injury, and I would recommend Active Recovery to anyone that is looking for an evidence-based physio.

Timely Expert Care: The Key to Swift and Sustainable Recovery

Don’t let pain become a permanent fixture in your life. Seeking expert care without delay can prevent your discomfort from evolving into chronic conditions that overshadow your daily experiences.

Continued Pain and Discomfort

Neglecting timely intervention can lead to the aggravation of pain, causing it to become more persistent and recurrent, significantly affecting your daily life.

Extended Recovery Periods

Postponing treatment can unnecessarily prolong the healing process, delaying your return to normal activities and potentially preventing a complete recovery.

Risk of Invasive Interventions

Ignoring early care can escalate conditions to a point where invasive procedures like injections or surgery become the only viable options.

Embrace the Active Recovery Difference

Committed to Your Recovery Journey

At Active Recovery, we deeply resonate with the challenges that pain presents. Beyond our treatments, we prioritize genuine understanding, empathy, and hands-on solutions.

Our seasoned team, accredited by the College of Physical Therapists of BC (CPTBC), Canadian Physiotherapy Association (CPA), Physiotherapy Association of BC (PABC), Hand Therapy Certification Commission (HTCC), and Canadian Athletic Therapists Association (CATA), stands as a beacon of our unwavering commitment.

Our Philosophy: Client-Centric Healing

At Active Recovery, we firmly believe in a holistic healing approach. For us, healing transcends mere symptom treatment; it’s about understanding and addressing the entire individual.

This commitment drives us to not just treat, but to also educate, support, and guide every client throughout their unique journey to ensure we touch on all aspects of their well-being.

Recognizing the distinct narrative each individual carries with them, our therapy plans are crafted with precision to cater to their specific needs. By seamlessly aligning treatments with individual life goals, we ensure every session paves the way not just to recovery, but to a more active and fulfilling life. 

And as we journey together, we understand the apprehensions one might harbour. Be it questions about the effectiveness of treatments, the duration of recovery, or even the financial implications – we’re here with clarity and assurance, ensuring every client feels confident and informed at every step of their healing journey.

At Active Recovery, we passionately believe no one should be bound by pain or physical limitations that diminish their quality of life. If you too feel that it’s unjust to let injuries or conditions hold you back from living fully, then take a stand.

Don’t just endure; empower yourself.

Book Your Appointment with us and reclaim the life you love, free from pain and filled with purpose.

Addressing Your Questions

Your Concerns, Our Answers

Each session is a blend of hands-on treatment, guided exercises, splint or brace adjustments and educational insights, tailored to your specific needs and recovery goals.

While individual experiences vary, most patients start noticing positive changes within the first 3 sessions.

While referrals can provide a detailed medical perspective, they aren’t mandatory to begin treatments with us.

Comfortable attire that allows movement and exposure of the injured areas, such as workout clothes, is ideal. You can bring a pair of shorts or a tank top to change into before your appointment if you prefer.

We are unable to provide direct billing & reporting for WorkSafeBC claims. It typically works best for the injured worker to see a WorkSafeBC contracted provider if you are injured at work so that all the necessary reporting and billing go to WSBC directly.

Yes, we accept ICBC claims. You do not need a referral to access our services if you are within the first 12 weeks post-injury. Simply provide us with your ICBC claim number, and we will take care of the rest, ensuring a seamless and efficient start to your recovery journey.
