Kinesiology and Human Kinetics

Kinesiology and Human Kinetics

Kinesiology is the scientific study of human movement, performance and function. It applies the science of biomechanics, anatomy, physiology, psychology and neuroscience to human movement and function.

The practice of kinesiology utilizes the latest scientific based research and best practices to aid in the enhancement of human performance, including work, sport, the prevention and rehabilitation of injury, lifestyle diseases and other pathophysiological conditions.

What is a kinesiologist?

Kinesiologists, also referred to as "kinesiotherapists" or "kinésiologues" in other regions of Canada and Québec are "human movement specialists".

The National Occupational Classification (NOC) 2011 defines kinesiologists and related professions (Category 3144) on page 287. 

The primary role of the kinesiologist is to evaluate physical activity-related matters and recommend solutions in health, exercise, sport, industry, business, education, rehabilitation and social settings.
