What is Kinesiology?

Kinesiology is a therapy in which kinesiologists practice some techniques to treat your current injuries or to prevent you from future injuries with the help of some specific exercises. Kinesiologists are the individuals who practice the study of body movement. They are different from many other therapists because they are university-trained therapists. Kinesiologists use their knowledge, and with the help of physiology, biomechanics, and anatomy, they help people and treat individuals according to their body demands. If you are looking for a professional and skilled kinesiologist, then we are available for you; feel free to contact us. Kinesiology is also known as one of the most comprehensive and holistic therapies because it’s filled with the study of anatomy, biomechanics, and physiology.

How can Kinesiology Help You?

Kinesiology is a non-invasive therapy that helps you by determining the imbalance part of your body, either physical or mental. Kinesiologists practice many effective exercises to keep fluids flowing throughout your body. They first determine the imbalance of body parts using muscle testing or stress’s effect on neurological areas, such as the brain and spinal column. Once they figure out the problem, they use techniques to solve it, such as placing your body in a particular position and applying gentle pressure on specific areas to open any blockages and to remove obstacles or stress blocks.

Kinesiology for Active Rehab and Personal Training Needs

MVA active rehabilitation
After a motor vehicle accident, active rehabilitation is a specific technique used to decrease pain and improve range of motion, flexibility, and strength through movement. You don’t have to pay for your MVA rehabilitation program because you can claim ICBC, and they will pay for you. Kinesiologists use this technique to get you back to your regular pain-free life and to give you the confidence to continue your life in a better manner.

Active rehab is a renowned kinesiology exercise that is mostly preferred for injury recovery and prevention. With this technique, kinesiologists help individuals with disabilities or injuries and help them to reach their medical fitness goals in a safe, non-invasive, and progressive manner. With the help of a licensed and professional kinesiologist, you will find the most effective and safest way of achieving health goals. The training period and method can vary and depend on various factors, and you will get your complete therapy schedule visit after the assessment on your first. Active rehab kinesiology includes therapeutic exercises, performance therapy, injury prevention and management, and muscle activation. Regardless of your health goals, you can achieve better health and life with the help of kinesiology.

Post isometric relaxation technique
Kinesiologists also use the post-isometric technique to provide effective treatment by improving body functions with the help of releasing hypertonic musculature. It’s mostly used to achieve many therapeutic goals, such as an increase in internal rotation of the hip, the relief of sciatic nerve entrapment pain, and the relief of local pain. With this technique, kinesiologists effectively treat many areas of the body and provide relief from any kind of pain.

Reciprocal inhibition technique
Reciprocal inhibition is the most preferred technique to gain muscle flexibility and to relieve muscle cramps. Muscle cramps can be triggered by several factors, including poor blood circulation, muscle fatigue, dehydration, being active in hot temperatures, magnesium or potassium deficiency, and not stretching enough. With the help of kinesiology, an individual can get rid of all these things and live a better, pain-free life.

Assisted stretches
Assisted stretching is very effective for older adults as they usually face pains and aches that may be triggered by many factors, such as osteoarthritis and spinal stenosis. Assisted stretching helps to get rid of these pains and aches. Kinesiologists are skilled professionals who know their effectiveness, so they effectively reduce the stiffness in the afflicted joints and improve flexibility and elasticity. This technique improves the posture, reduces the risk of falling, and increases the energy level of a person.

Posture analysis
Posture analysis or evaluation is the technique used in kinesiology to determine the patient’s posture with the help of various tests and measurements. Kinesiologists make an exercise schedule based on the results of the evaluation or analysis. After the assessment in the first session, the therapist describes the condition of your body and gives you all the details of your complete kinesiology course.

Gait analysis
Gait analysis can be defined as the study of human motion by eye and brain observation. Gait analysis is one of the techniques used in kinesiology in which the kinesiologist identifies the person’s body condition with the way of walking and running. They are professional and can easily determine the human’s normal gait patterns. After knowing the problematic area, they diagnose the issue causing pain and implement various methods to treat it.

Pretty good RMT (registered massage therapy) experience. They do direct billing to 1 provider. Location can be a bit hard to find at first. Can park in the underground parking lot. When you walk back up the parking lot ramp, Evergreen is on the right past the 504 sign.

Suji Hong, the acupuncturist, is the best I’ve ever known. I had foot injuries that lasted for a couple of months, but after receiving three sessions of needle treatments from her, the pain is gone! She is very professional and caring, and she pinpoints the exact areas where I have issues. If you are looking for a trustworthy acupuncturist in town, I would highly recommend her :)

Sarah Park is the best kinesiologist I have ever experienced. Always impressed by her superlative job of providing best solutions and delivering the immaculate sessions. It's easy to feel that she is very knowledgeable, passionate and caring. Having an amazing experience with Sarah has led me to switch from other clinic that I have been taking physio to take physio sessions at Evergreen.
