KINESIOLOGY...

The science of human movement. Kinesiologists apply evidence based practice to improve function, health and well-being. 

 

Kinesiologists are highly educated, health care professionals who are experts in biomechanics, anatomy, physiology and the application of these principles to health, function and performance.  Kinesiologists are committed to enhancing quality of life through the promotion of physical activity, workplace health and safety, the prevention and management of injury, chronic disease and disability, and reaching peak physical performance.

There are many facets to Kinesiology and Kinesiologists have a broad scope of practice. Our Kinesiologists here at Uptown Waterloo Therapy provide clinical kinesiology. Here are few examples of what services we provide:
