What is Kinesiology?
Kinesiology was officially recognized as a Registered Healthcare profession within Ontario in 2013 and is similar in many ways to Physiotherapy. The key differences between physiotherapy and Kinesiology lie in education of the provider, and the ability to perform controlled acts in Ontario. A kinesiologist is unable to provide any controlled acts while a physiotherapist is able to provide a few of them. Namely, a kinesiologist is unable to provide a diagnosis, nor can they perform acupuncture. A Kinesiologist specializes in proper human movement and using exercise as a tool for recovery. Having a Kinesiologist and a physiotherapist working together on your health and rehabilitation allows for an enhanced treatment experience and the most efficient return to pre-injury status.
