HOW IT WORKS

Kinesiology uses a mix of strength, conditioning, flexibility, cardiovascular training, and education to improve overall health and performance. Our registered Kinesiologists will work with you to help you recover by empowering you to combat your injuries through movement and exercise base techniques. Your Kinesiologist will educate you on effective pain management strategies using a customized exercise program that will be designed around your specific injuries and goals to give you the tools and the confidence needed to achieve your desired function.

WHAT TO EXPECT

Our Kinesiologists work hand in hand without our Physiotherapists to offer one-on-one treatment and detailed assessments to our clients. They will work with you to not only help you move better but also educate you and prescribe exercises/treatment. All appointments are done remotely via JaneVideo App that is free to download onto your device or accessed via the internet.
You will receive:
• One on one treatment
• Detailed assessment to understand current fitness or recovery level to determine goals.
• An attainable game plan and personalized exercises to reach goals

HOW TO PREPARE

Come in appropriate attire to allow your Kinesiologist to perform an assessment of your injuries, and ready to move your way to a better tomorrow! Whenever starting a new physiotherapy program, bring a list of any medications to your first appointment, along with any relevant X-rays and MRIs. If you’re experiencing pain symptoms beforehand, make a note of them and be sure to tell your therapist ahead of time. If you are involved in an accident claim with ICBC, be sure to get treatment approval before your sessions begin.

Masks are manditory for in-person treatment, in compliance with BC's mask mandate. Please read our Covid-19 procedures for more information.
