Welcome to Nova Active Rehab

Our team of physiotherapists and kinesiologists specialize in car accident recovery. We create custom rehabilitation programs for our patients based on their specific injuries and unique requirements. Typically, patients start with physiotherapy treatment and then progress to kinesiology. We offer physiotherapy at our head office location in Port Coquitlam.

Active rehabilitation refers to an exercise program that specifically addresses injury. This service is provided by a kinesiologist. A kinesiologist understands how the human body moves and functions and provides patients with a swift recovery post-accident.

Our professional kinesiologists who are members of the BC Association of Kinesiologists, and you can meet them at various private locations throughout the Lower Mainland. It is essential to engage in active rehabilitation in order to fully recover from soft tissue injuries such as a back or neck injury.

All treatments supplied at Nova Active Rehab are 100% funded by ICBC, meaning there are no user fees attached to your treatment. All patients with an active claim can receive prompt and effective treatments from us.


If you’re unable to travel to get help, virtual active rehab sessions can be scheduled instead. You will receive the same great care and stay on course with your rehab program as you would in person.

Virtual session fees are covered 100% by ICBC as well.

What Our Patients are Saying

Nova Active Rehab was a vital part of my rehabilitation from a recent car accident. Prior to this I was undergoing treatment but not achieving the results needed to get back to where I was before the accident. I thank Thomas and Nova Active Rehab for the detailed program tailored to my needs to get results.

I have finished my rehab program with Thomas. Looking back on my progress, I really want to thank the Nova staff and Thomas for their help and support. Rehab is not easy. Thomas has been very professional and detail oriented in figuring out my muscle weaknesses and finding ways to improve them.

I really want to let you know how wonderful working with Matthew was.  I am stronger than when I first came to work with him, but more so, he taught me stretches and movements to continue my healing beyond active rehab.  Most importantly, Matthew was very personable, took the time to listen to me to ensure I was getting the best out of my exercises, and was always so encouraging.  I want you to know Matthew is an amazing therapist, and I miss seeing him every week!
