Do you know what kinesiologists do? If not, don’t worry – we’re here to help. A kinesiologist is a health care professional who helps people improve and maintain their physical well-being through the use of body movement and exercise. The kinesiologist can also be referred to as a kinesiologist or physiotherapist. These professionals work with individuals, families, groups, communities and organizations to identify ways in which they can prevent injury or illness by promoting healthy lifestyles that include regular exercise and good nutrition habits.
Kinesiologists use a wide range of techniques to achieve their goals, including kinesiology taping. In order to provide the best treatment possible, kinesiologists work in teams with other health care professionals such as registered nurses and physicians when appropriate.

A Kinesiologist Helps Chronic Pain Patients
If you suffer from chronic pain, kinesiology taping can help. A kinesiologist will apply this specialized form of kinesiology tape to the affected areas which helps reduce swelling and increase circulation while preventing further damage to muscles, tendons or ligaments in these regions. Studies show that kinesiologists are effective at reducing symptoms associated with a number of health conditions including arthritis, osteoporosis, back pain/injuries/spasms, shoulder injuries & more.
A Kinesiologist Can Help You Stay Active
Are regular physical activity and exercise part of your everyday routine? If not – why not? Far too many individuals let fear keep them away from activities they enjoy like skiing or cycling because their body isn’t moving the way it used to.
