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.

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 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 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 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.
