What is Kinesiology?
Kinesiology is the scientific study of human movement. A Kinesiologist helps support patients of all ages to improve efficiency, movement, and performance from a biological perspective.
This can include support for sports and fitness, motor disability management, injury recovery, rehabilitation, and ergonomics. Kinesiology is a powerful addition to your whole-body wellness routine and makes a great companion to massage, chiropractic, and acupuncture services.
What Are the Benefits of Kinesiology?
Kinesiology can help get to the root of health problems or discomfort using systematic assessments and functional analysis to help identify areas for growth or healing.
The goal of kinesiology is to create a treatment plan that supports your overall well-being and health, while promoting and improving movement for life.
