WHAT IS A KINESIOLOGIST?

Kinesiologists are human movement specialists. Kinesiology is not just rehabilitative but also focuses on prevention through movement enhancement and promotes general wellness. Kinesiologists utilize corrective exercises and other supportive modalities with a personal approach to improve movement quality to achieve a better quality of life for individuals. 

They design and implement exercise programs which are based on postural analysis, movement pattern screens, and strength/flexibility assessments. 

The Orthoquest Team of Kinesiologists are University educated, members of the British Columbia Association of Kinesiologists and have varying experience, training, and specialtiesLearn more about our Kinesiologists here.

    ACTIVE REHABILITATION

    Have you been in an accident, have a current injury or dealing with more of a chronic condition or injury? The initial appointment is a one-hour assessment including a detailed medical health history interview, full body postural analysis, and functional movement testing. The information from the assessment is required for the Kinesiologist to create a custom, progressive exercise program designed specifically for you and your needs. The number of sessions required following the assessment will be dependent on your injury/condition, your time/financial budget, and your bodies progression through active rehabilitation programming.
