Kinesiology is the scientific study of human movement, performance and function. It applies the science of biomechanics, anatomy, physiology, psychology and neuroscience to human movement and function.
On a practical level, kinesiology utilizes science-based research and assessment to aid in the enhancement of human performance, such as sport or work environments and to assist in the prevention or rehabilitation of injury, lifestyle diseases and other physiological conditions.
Registered Kinesiologists are recognized experts in preventing and managing injury and chronic disease and helping to reach peak physical performance.
Kinesiologists use evidence-based research to develop programs for people, helping them get and stay fit, and perform at their optimum level. Kinesiologists believe in empowering people to look after their own health. They focus on prevention and wellbeing, increasing worker productivity and reducing time lost to injuries and accidents, helping you get back to work and back to health faster.
If you’ve been injured in a car accident, our Kinesiology team at Total Care Health can work with ICBC, your doctor and your physiotherapist to help you recover quickly. You’ll receive one-on-one support, and we’ll ensure your program is tailored to your needs. Your program will include training, education and empowerment.
