First Steps Wellness Centre (FSWC) is a specialized rehabilitation facility that was established in 2010 to promote functional recovery in individuals with a spinal cord injury.
Our methods differ from traditional rehabilitation as we focus on promoting functional gains below the level of injury through intensive, activity-based recovery methods.
Our Children’s Program provides a specific, intensive activity based program to work with the child as a whole in order to improve motor planning, body awareness, independence and quality of life.
This program is designed to help developmentally delayed children make gains in just four weeks that could take up to a year to achieve with conventional therapy or without therapy.
FSWC is a Canadian Sport Centre Saskatchewan GymFit Facility.
We are a recognized facility to train elite athletes, including elite para athletes. FSWC has vast experience working with people who have neurological disabilities, so the transition to offer a program to high performance para athletes has been very successful.
RECOGNIZE POTENTIAL … NOT LIMITS.
FSWC is a non-profit organization with charitable status. Established in 2010, we provide innovative activity-based therapy to people with spinal cord injuries. We have also applied our methods to associated disorders such as Cerebral Palsy, Spina Bifida, Multiple Sclerosis, stroke and traumatic brain injuries.
FSWC programs are custom-designed for our clients using the latest research, equipment, and activity-based therapy methods. Our goal is to help improve the motor function of people who have suffered neurological trauma or who have neurological conditions. Ultimately this will help to improve their independence and overall quality of life.
