Kinesiology

Prevent, Manage, and Rehabilitate Injury

Kinesiologists are human movement specialists, offering a wide variety of assessments and services to assist with both injury/illness prevention and injury management. Their practice is based on the core sciences of anatomy, physiology, biomechanics, and psychomotor behaviour. Helping you with your active rehabilitation, they will assess your physical function and then create and guide you through a progression of specifically structured exercises tailored especially to your needs.

  • Do you do direct billing?

    Many insurance companies cover kinesiology but most do not allow clinics to direct bill on a patient’s behalf.  Please call your insurance provider to explore your specific plan details and coverages.

  • Is kinesiology covered by ICBC?

    Yes! Work one-on-one in our studio space with a kinesiologist to create a personalized exercise program to help you with your post-motor vehicle accident recovery. Your kinesiologist will assess your physical function and customize progressive exercises specifically geared to your needs and recovery. Exercises will be performed in the studio on our equipment; however, you will also have an at-home care program designed to be used without large equipment, so you can continue your rehab outside of the studio. You will be provided with guidance and feedback as you progress through your exercises so that you can safely strengthen and regain function with the goal of independent maintenance.
