Welcome to FSWC in Winnipeg, Manitoba! We specialize in rehabilitation for people with neuromuscular disorders. We help our clients regain function through the use of leading edge intensive exercise-based rehabilitation programs.

We help our clients regain function.

FSWC is a non-profit organization with charitable status. We provide leading edge intensive activity-based therapy (ABT) to people with spinal cord injuries and associated disorders.

We have also adapted our methods to provide ABT to individuals who have experienced stroke or traumatic brain injuries, as well as those with other neurological conditions.

Our goal is to help improve the motor function of individuals who have suffered neurological trauma or who have neurological conditions, thus increasing independence and ultimately improving overall quality of life.

Spinal Cord Injury Rehab in Manitoba

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.


Measuring Success

FSWC has helped 12% of our clients to walk again after a spinal cord injury, and we take pride in a 94% increase in mobility and independence through functional gains.

Children's Program

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.

Therapy for Associated Disorders

FSWC exists to fill a gap in community-based health services for neurological disorders and we will do our best to accommodate all conditions within that category.

Activity-based therapy methods have proven to be effective with several different conditions, and we are always willing to work with new clients.
