What is Kinesiology?
A health profession that specializes in the science of human movement and exercise. Kinesiologists use their knowledge of anatomy, physiology, biomechanics, and exercise science to help manage and prevent musculoskeletal issues and movement-related problems. Kinesiologists often work in collaboration with other healthcare professionals to help clients improve their overall physical well-being and performance
- Exercise Prescription: Kinesiologists create personalized exercise programs for individuals based on their specific needs and goals based off necessary health screening and physical activity, fitness, and lifestyle assessment protocols. These programs may focus on rehabilitation after injuries, improving athletic performance, or enhancing overall fitness.
- Injury Rehabilitation: Kinesiologists work with clients who have suffered injuries, helping them recover and regain functional movement through targeted exercises and therapies.
- Movement Analysis: Kinesiologists assess movement patterns to identify any imbalances, weaknesses, or dysfunctions that could lead to injuries or impact performance negatively.
- Chronic Disease Management: In collaboration with Physical Therapists, Kinesiologists assist clients with chronic conditions like arthritis, diabetes, or heart disease, using exercise as a means to manage symptoms and improve quality of life.
- Sports Performance Enhancement: Kinesiologists work with athletes to enhance their athletic abilities, optimize performance, and reduce the risk of injuries.
- Functional Movement Screening: They conduct assessments to evaluate an individual’s overall movement patterns and functional abilities.
- Health Education: They may also educate the public on exercise and health-related topics.
- Cognitive rehabilitation: Our Kinesiologist works with a health provider team to facilitate client-centered programs utilizing the science of neuroplasticity to improve cognitive functioning for those with impaired cognition, TBI’s, concussions, long-COVID, chemo fog, and those wanting to improve cognitive performance.
