Kinesiology is the scientific study of human movements impacting muscle function and overall health. It allows individuals to reach peak physical performance while improving quality of life. Using evidence-based research, Registered Kinesiologists develop individualized programs that aim to restore function and prevent injury. This is done by carrying out a thorough assessment and designing a treatment plan which incorporates flexibility, strengthening and endurance exercises to improve overall movement. In some cases kinesiology services may be covered by extended health care benefit plans. Kinesiologists also assist with return to work by providing ergonomic assessments ensuring accommodations for employees are met enabling individuals to return to their employment sooner.
