Benefits of Kinesiology
Kinesiology is the scientific study of movement. Kinesiologists are movement specialists offering a wide variety of assessments and services to assist with both injury and illness prevention as well as injury management.
Kinesiology is based on the core sciences of anatomy, physiology, biomechanics and psychomotor behaviour. It focuses on maintaining your strength and stamina during injury as well as preventing re-injury by helping you regain flexibility. The goal is to restore efficient movement in your everyday life, whether this be a regular or a more intense sports-focused lifestyle.
Kinesiology doesn’t just aid in the prevention and healing of muscle injuries. It can also help people with chronic conditions. Many people with chronic conditions and diseases are known to attain a higher quality of life when an applicable fitness regimen is used as part of their treatment plan. People suffering from cancer can benefit from a therapeutic fitness regimen prior to receiving treatment, during their chemo or radiation therapy, and following surgery.
At Assured Health physiotherapy, our Kinesiologist help to develop a therapeutic fitness program to maintain your fitness during injury and substantially reduce the risk of re-injury. We will work with you before, during and after your treatment to help reduce tiredness and stiffness in the muscles, assist in your overall recovery, and manage any problematic side effects you may be experiencing.
We take into account your age, state of health, and overall fitness, and design a regimen that is specifically tailored to your goals and requirements. Getting you fit and healthy, and keeping you that way, is our number one priority.
