What Is Kinesiology In Ottawa?
Kinesiology is the study and application of human movement and exercise science. A kinesiologist is someone who understands how muscles work, what causes injuries and why certain exercises help you become stronger, faster, or in better condition. They know about bones, joints, tendons, ligaments, and nerves. And they understand how to prevent injuries and treat them effectively.A kinesiologist uses scientific principles to design safe, effective fitness programs that meet individual needs.
To do this, he or she studies human anatomy, the physiology of injuries, exercise physiology, body functions, biomechanics, techniques of strength training, psychology, and motor control. This knowledge helps him or her to identify and avoid potential problems.The kinesiologist also knows that our bodies respond to stimuli in many different ways.
So while some people prefer to lift weights, others like yoga or tai chi. Some people want to run marathons; others want to play tennis or golf. Each person has his or her own unique body type and physical abilities.In addition, the kinesiologist takes into account each person’s personality, lifestyle, and goals when designing a program. He or she works closely with clients to determine what activities best suit their lifestyles.
What Should I Expect In A Kinesiology Session?
The initial session is an evaluation session and it will be provided by a licensed kinesiologist with background information about your general health, previous injuries, types of exercises you enjoy, physical activity, body movement patterns, etc. This helps us determine what type of kinesiology techniques we should recommend based on your needs. We can offer a variety of kinesiology services including strength training, musculoskeletal exercise therapy, sports injury training, core stability, flexibility, balance, etc.
