What Do Kinesiologists Do?

Kinesiologists develop personalized treatment programs for clients as per their unique concerns. Typically, treatments can involve:

  • Resistance training involves using weights, resistance bands or bodyweight exercises to strengthen muscles. It helps build muscle mass, improve endurance and increase overall strength.
  • Cardiovascular training focuses on improving heart and lung health. It includes activities like running, cycling and swimming that raise the heart rate to enhance endurance and cardiovascular fitness.
  • Postural assessments evaluate an individual’s body alignment and posture to identify any irregularities or imbalances. These assessments are essential for addressing issues like back pain or poor posture.
  • Balance and agility training aims to enhance stability and coordination. Exercises focus on improving balance and agility, which is crucial for activities that require quick movements or maintaining equilibrium.
  • Range of motion and flexibility exercises aim to increase the body’s ability to move through its full range of motion. These exercises can enhance joint mobility, reduce the risk of injury and alleviate muscle tension.
  • Coaching. Kinesiology coaching involves personalized guidance and support to help you set and achieve your health and fitness goals. Coaches provide motivation, exercise plans and expert advice to assist clients in reaching their objectives.

Kinesiology and ICBC Claims
