What is kinesiology?
Kinesiology is the science of human movement, performance and function. Kinesiologists are healthcare professionals with expert knowledge of the role your body mechanics play in preventing and managing injury, chronic disease, disability, and overall performance.
How can kinesiology help me?
Kinesiology uses an evidence-based active treatment model to correct body mechanics and restore mobility to injured areas. Our Kinesiologists help with injuries to joints, soft tissue sprains and strains, post-operative rehabilitation, and post-concussion management. This includes back and neck pain, knee and ankle pain, shoulder dysfunction, and concussion and balance issues.
Kinesiologists also focus on health promotion, ergonomics, fitness training, and return to work strategies.
How does it work?
Kinesiologists will work with you to develop a customized treatment plan based on your current needs, helping you achieve your goals. You will also receive at-home exercises to compliment your treatment sessions.
What do I need to bring to my initial appointment?
At your initial appointment the kinesiologist will discuss any medical history that relates to your condition, so please bring details of any health problems and past treatments.
As well, an evaluation will be conducted on the area where you are experiencing discomfort. Please wear comfortable, loose-fitting clothing.
When can I expect to see results?
Results vary depending on the type and degree of your condition. Many clients notice an improvement as early as their initial appointment and see significant results when they combine their home exercises with regular appointments.
Our kinesiologist will discuss your treatment plan with you, and explain when you can expect to see results.
