What can a kinesiologist do for you?

Kinesiologists are university-educated health professionals who study the dynamics of human movement. With their in-depth knowledge of the human body and how it moves, they apply exercise and movement science to promote health and wellbeing; prevent, manage and rehabilitate injuries through active rehab; treat illness and chronic disease; restore function, and optimize human performance in the workplace, clinical settings, sport and fitness.

Have you been in a car accident and need an active rehab program? ICBC will cover the cost of 12 sessions with a kinesiologist. If you’re looking to improve your overall fitness and health with a structured exercise program designed to address your specific strengths and weaknesses, working with a kinesiologist is a great place to start.

Kinesiology FAQs

If you still have a question after browsing our website, please don’t hesitate to contact us directly.

Are Kinesiology visits covered by my extended health plan?

Every extended health plan is different. You will need to check the details of your plan. Some plans will cover Kinesiology through a Health Spending Account.

What happens during a Kinesiology appointment?

On your first visit, your Kinesiologist will do a functional movement assessment of you to determine where your strengths and weaknesses are. Based on that assessment, they will build a program for you, and guide you through your exercises at each visit.

What should I wear for a Kinesiology session?

You will be active and moving throughout the session. Wear comfortable, flexible clothing that you can easily bend, stretch, and sweat in!

What is ICBC Active Rehabilitation and how will it help me after a car accident?

In conjunction with physiotherapy, Active Rehabilitation will keep you motivated to get well by being on a structured movement and exercise-based program specific to the injuries you sustained in the accident. Knowing that you have someone to guide you, one-on-one, through an exercise program 1-2 times per week keeps you on top of your rehab with no excuses! The sooner we get moving, safely, following any injury, the better our bodies heal.
