Specialized rehabilitation programs are available at The Westin Bear Mountain Victoria Resort & Spa, thanks to the expertise of staff at our Mountainside Athletic Club. Our kinesiologist, Tanya Scheck, is certified in medical exercise rehabilitation and has developed two specialized programs aimed at helping people recovering from surgery, musculoskeletal or other injuries, chronic illnesses, or other physical challenges.
Every rehabilitation program starts with a comprehensive assessment of the patient’s needs. Tanya will then design an individualized aquatic or gym-based regime. Gym-based programs use movement and exercises to maximize the patient’s physical potential while restoring functional abilities. Aquatic rehabilitation takes place in our heated pool, making use of the water’s buoyancy, hydrostatic pressure, support, and resistance to meet rehabilitative goals. With less impact on joints, aquatic therapy is often useful for patients with high levels of pain or very low functional abilities, for whom gym-based programs may not be appropriate.
Our state-of-the-art facility offers a supportive environment with fully trained staff. To book an appointment, contact the club at (250) 391-3758.
