What is a kinesiologist?

A kinesiologist is a health professional who specializes in the study of human movement. In a clinical setting, kinesiologists work alongside physical therapists and rehabilitation specialists; they use exercise, and other forms of movement, to help people rehabilitate injury and/or restore or enhance physical function after physical trauma or surgery. They can help you:

  • Improve flexibility, balance, and coordination
  • Increase muscular strength, endurance, and power
  • Increase range of motion
  • Develop proper posture
  • Learn how to perform activities of daily living safely and efficiently to reduce risk of injury and strain
  • Helping develop a home exercise program

*The goal of Kinesiology is to discover strategies for improved human health and performance.
