What is a kinesiologist?

Kinesiologists are health professionals that design and conduct health and wellness programs for all age groups with the purpose of improving general fitness, sport performance, athletic training, and rehabilitation of pain and injuries.

Who can benefit from seeing a kinesiologist?

Anyone seeking to improve their physical health, fitness, or athletic performance can benefit from seeing a kinesiologist. Additionally, individuals recovering from injuries or those with specific movement-related concerns, such as chronic pain or mobility issues, may find kinesiology services helpful in rehabilitation and enhancing overall well-being.

What does a session look like?

The first session is an evaluation to give the kinesiologist a better understanding of your limitations and what your program should focus on.

Once that is completed, the subsequent sessions are spent performing the program that the kinesiologist created to help you achieve your goals.

What can this help me with?

Kinesiology can help you achieve any physical goals you might have. Whether that is performance-based or rehabilitating from an injury to return to the activities that you want to do. If you can’t do an activity right now because of old or new injuries, we can help to get you back to doing the things you love.

Is Kinesiology covered by my insurance?

At the moment, kinesiology is not covered by many plans. The Ontario Kinesiologist Association is working hard to make kinesiology a covered service for most insurance plans.
