News about kinesiology

KAS & CKA encourages everyone to share information and latest news related to Kinesiology and its field of practice in Canada. One may get ideas to enhance and to promote kinesiology. Read all about it here!



The CKA, in an effort to foster better collaboration between various health groups, is proud to support initiatives such as the World Diabetes Day to be held on November 14th. 

Experts agree that nearly half of Canadian adults are not physically active enough to benefit their health and well-being, and despite many well-intended campaigns, this trend does not seem to be improving. This is why the Canadian Kinesiology Alliance (CKA), as part of the 2018 National Kinesiology Week taking place from November 12 to 18, agrees that it is only through the collaboration of the community, the government and private and public sectors, that physical activity will be increased and sedentary living reduced across all generations with a new multidisciplinary approach to well-being. The negative repercussions of inactivity are estimated to cost the Canadian economy $6.8 billion. If we were to decrease the number of inactive Canadians by even 10%, we would see a 30% reduction in all-cause mortality and a major savings in health care. Fortunately, according to several studies, properly structured and supported exercise programs, designed and delivered by a kinesiologist can offer multiple health benefits.

For example, it has been demonstrated that exercise can reduce the incidence of type 2 diabetes by 50% and be twice as effective as standard insulin. Physical activity and fitness can also reduce the risk of other medical conditions .

This is why the CKA invites Kinesiologists to mobilize to help diabetics and have them consult a Kin near them!
