Kinesiology is the study of human movement. Kinesiologists help prevent and manage musculoskeletal injuries, as well as chronic health issues through exercise. They also work with clients to achieve performance and overall health-related goals. At MSK Clinics our Kinesiologists work closely with physiotherapists and chiropractors to co-manage health conditions in a team-based environment.
Direct billing to ICBC is available for most open ICBC cases. Please contact our offices for further information and to book your assessment. We are currently unable to direct bill extended health insurance for Kinesiology sessions.
What to expect during your kinesiology appointment
Kinesiology appointments generally begin with a warm-up, which can be cardio or mobility-based. The bulk of the appointment consists of strength training and stretching catered to your current condition and desired outcomes. Appointments are generally one hour in length although 30-minute and 45-minute appointments are also available.
Who can Benefit from Seeing a Kinesiologist?
As long as you are cleared for physical activity by your physiotherapist, chiropractor, or doctor, you can likely benefit from seeing a Kinesiologist. Whether your goal is to increase strength after an injury, learn more about exercise, improve sports performance or recover from a motor vehicle accident, a Kinesiologist can help.
What is Active Rehabilitation?
Active Rehabilitation is a program through ICBC for individuals recovering from a motor vehicle accident. A doctor, physiotherapist, or chiropractor can refer clients for rehabilitation exercises to help with their recovery. This service is usually covered by ICBC.
