Kinesiology

According to the Canadian Kinesiology Alliance, Kinesiology is the application of scientifically based principles to enhance strength, endurance & mobility of individuals with or without functional limitations & administration of musculoskeletal, neurological, biomechanical, physiological, psychological& task-specific tests, assessments & measures. Kinesiologists have completed a four-year bachelor’s degree studying anatomy, physiology, biomechanics, motor learning, psychology, sociology, physical education and general health.

Active Rehabilitation

Active rehabilitation focuses on corrective exercises designed to improve specific functional limitations. These limitations can be related to posture, stability, endurance, mobility, strength, and flexibility. The physiotherapist and kinesiologist will collaborate to develop exercise programs that are tailored to each individual patient. Programs will be modified and adapted as needed to cater to the specific needs of each patient.

Dancer Specific

Assessments with dancers may reveal underlying issues that require correction through rehabilitation and strengthening. Zoe will combine her background in dance with her education in kinesiology and exercise science to create programs that facilitate specific goals. Injury prevention is always a priority for young dancers, therefore programs will focus on improving areas of dysfunction that increase risk of injury.
