Kinesiology

Active rehabilitation is a proactive approach to injury management that enables rapid healing. Through integration of a progressive series of exercises—designed to activate weak muscles and rebalance your body—your natural body alignment is restored, eliminating joint pain and stiffness. Somatec’s professionally trained and university-educated kinesiologists create individually-tailored programs that take into account your injury, functional limitations, level of conditioning and the demands of your job and daily life. Our programs also correct preexisting postural imbalances, preventing future injury.

Personalized Exercise Programs

We develop an exercise program that will help you transition from treatment to daily recreational activities and work (GRTW) without fear of injuring yourself further. We strongly believe a successful recovery includes tools to regain your pre-accident lifestyle and confidence to go along with an effective return-to-work plan. Your program will be a personalized combination of stretching, core stability and functional strengthening exercises. A detailed home exercise program will also be provided—allowing you to maintain strength between each session with a therapist. Emphasis on education about your specific injury and related pain management techniques will hasten your recovery. In the absence of a doctor-diagnosed injury, active rehabilitation programs can also help reduce back and joint pain, or improve posture. Somtec’s programs begin with a comprehensive physical assessment including range of motion, flexibility and strength testing. We will also assess your injury history in order to develop a highly-effective individualized program.
