What is a Kinesiologist?
A Kinesiologist works with you during your recovery from an accident or injury in an active rehab program. A Kinesiologist is hired by yourself, or a lawyer, to prepare your active rehabilitation program. This is a program implemented after you have worked with a Physiotherapist for some time, and are deemed healthy enough to start a general strength training program to continue to heal your body after your injury.
A Kinesiologist works alongside your medical practitioners to provide you with the safest workout program to get you back to full function in no time!
Check out this fantastic article about how Kinesiologists serve the public:
Can a Non Injured Person work with a Kinesiologist?
Yes. "Kinesiologist" refers to someone who has a degree in Kinesiology and is insured by the Kinesiology governing body in their area to work with all populations of people, injured or non injured.
A non injured person will still benefit greatly from working with a Kinesiologist certified personal trainer because of our extensive background of the human body. Rather than studying to become a personal trainer over the span of a few weekend courses, we study in depth for our 4 year degree.
Sometimes your extended benefits at your workplace will cover working with a Kinesiologist for a certain number of sessions.
