Why are kinesiologists important to your health?

Kinesiologists are human movement specialists providing services through the application of health sciences, including anatomy, physiology, biomechanics, psychomotor behaviour, and nutrition.

Kinesiologists provide unique and valuable services to enhance health and wellness by helping to plan, manage, and improve fitness. They work closely with you to prevent and treat illness or injury, increase physical performance, manage the delivery of individual health care plans, provide workplace design services, and provide support in rehabilitation and wellness management. 

Kinesiologists also provide "a bridge" in care from clinic-based assessment and treatment to home, community, and work reintegration.

As an integral part of your health care team, Kinesiologists work with physicians, nurses, physical and occupational therapists, chiropractors, and massage therapists.

Ask your doctor or health care team for a referral, or visit the “Find a Kin near you” section of our website to find a practising Kinesiologist in your area.
