What is Active Rehabilitation?
Active rehab is an exercise program designed and guided by a Kinesiologist to help you return to the activities that you enjoyed before the car accident.
We focus on providing you with appropriate exercises and physical activities to enable you to recover from your injuries.

I tried physio. I tried the chiropractor. I tried acupuncture. And then I tried kinesiology at Lifemoves. I should have gone to Lifemoves first and then I wouldn't have had to spend all that money on the first three.
