To know why it is important to hire a Kinesiologist, we must first understand what a Kinesiologist is. Kinesiology is the study of human movement, performance, and function. Kinesiologists are able to apply studies of anatomy, biomechanics, physiology and neurosciences to human movement. With this knowledge, Kinesiologists can provide a well-rounded health service to the public that includes but is not limited to the following:
- Injury Assessment
Kinesiologists have the ability to provide assessment and treatment services for individual suffering from physical injury or strain. These injuries can be either sports or accident related. Kinesiologists can assess an injury and prescribe appropriate exercises for an individual to return to their daily activities.
- Chronic Disease/Disability Therapy
Kinesiologists can provide a health and wellness program to a diseased or disabled population that provides them with the appropriate stimulus necessary for health promotion. They can work alongside health practitioners to design and conduct a program that provides a better quality of life through appropriate exercise and diet changes.
- Return to Work or Play Protocol
Kinesiologists can prescribe an exercise program that rehabilitates an individual after ailments caused by the work place or weekend activities. If someone suffers from health problems caused by the sedentary positions at work, Kinesiologists can work towards proactively changing muscular orientations for better alignment.
- Sport Specific Training
Kinesiologists are trained to design exercise programs that provide the appropriate amount of stimulation for sport performance in the athlete population. Kinesiologists have the ability to lead an athlete to increased efficiency, strength, endurance and power through appropriate exercise programming.
- Health & Fitness
Kinesiologists can produce a health and wellness program for any age group of all different types of skill sets. This program includes general fitness, human nutrition, or any topic related to an individual’s health and wellbeing as they live their daily lives.
