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?

Athletes looking to improve performance or the everyday person looking to get healthier and do the activities that they haven’t been able to do because of pain or discomfort.

What does a session look like?

The first session is an evaluation to give the kinesiologist a better understanding of your limitations and what the program of care should focus on. Once that is completed, the subsequent sessions are spent performing the program that the kinesiologist created to help you achieve your goal.

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 to do.

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.
