Kinesiology

Kinesiology, also known as human kinetics, is the scientific study of human movement. Kinesiology addresses physiological, mechanical, and psychological mechanisms. Applications of kinesiology to human health include: biomechanics and orthopedics; strength and conditioning; sport psychology; methods of rehabilitation, such as physical and occupational therapy; and sport and exercise. Individuals who have earned degrees in kinesiology can work in research, the fitness industry, clinical settings, and in industrial environments.

Detailed assessments will help to diagnose specific injuries and dysfunctions.  The gym space at the clinic is fully equipped with a treadmill, stationary bike, leg press, health rider, hydrachair, various balance equipment, and weights to allow easy demonstration and practice of exercises and techniques. Kinesiologist Kris Swanson often helps to supervise and plan exercise programs.
