Physiotherapist vs. Kinesiologist

Physiotherapists work with patients to restore function, movement and mobility for the following:

  • Sports-related injuries
  • Work-related injuries
  • Chronic conditions
  • Disability
  • Aging
  • Health conditions

Physiotherapists assess, diagnose, and treat conditions utilizing:

  • Specific hands on treatments
  • Customized treatment plans
  • Patient education: their injury, how to avoid further injury, and return to normal function
Kinesiologists use exercise and functional movements to help clients to:

  • Manage/improve injuries
  • Improve functional strength
  • Improve mobility and flexibility
  • Increase sport performance
  • Prevent chronic conditions
  • Manage chronic conditions

Kinesiologists observe movement patterns and, when necessary, work with other healthcare professionals to:

  • Evaluate functional abilities for work, activities of daily living, and sport
  • Develop specialized exercise programs
  • Re-assess and adjust programs as necessary

Physiotherapists are covered through health benefits.
Kinesiologists are NOT covered through health benefits.
We have both! Call to ask for more information!
