Kinesiology is an evidence-based practice of human body movements with its components such as anatomy, physiology, biomechanics, psychology, and their interaction with the environment. The purpose of kinesiology and active rehabilitation are primarily preventing, managing and rehabilitating injuries, as well as detect and correct imbalances that may relate to stress, nutrition, or minor injuries through progressive therapeutic exercise.
The major role of kinesiologists is being able to use muscle monitoring techniques to access information about a person’s wellbeing and to promote physical, emotional, mental and spiritual health. Using a patient-centred approach, treatment plans will be designed to meet the specific needs of the client. Patient-specific goals may include but are not limited to regaining muscle strength, increasing range of joint motion, and improving daily-activity body functions.
