Kinesiology is the study of human movement, and it’s components; anatomical, biomechanics, neuromotor, and ergonomics in interaction with your environment. 

Kinesiologists provide functional movement assessments that ultimately improve your posture, body alignment, muscular strength, mobility, stability and balance. Exercise prescription is a key factor in your rehabilitation to ensure full recovery from injury and to promote optimal function. These exercise prescriptions come in many forms such as stretching, strengthening, mobilizations, core-stabilization, balancing and muscle re-education. Taylor as a registered Kinesiologist provides patients with a range of exercise prescriptions, correcting postural dysfunctions related to specific injuries. Her focus is to maintain, rehabilitate and enhance human movement.

There are a few main differences between a kinesiologist and physiotherapist and these are:

  • A physiotherapist uses more passive techniques (example: needle work, manual therapy and modalities).

  • A kinesiologist typically spend up to an hour of time with their clients.

  • Kinesiologists' use an active exercise rehab and fitness program method ie: strengthening with the intent to avoid reinjury
