What is a kinesiologist?

Updated: Jun 18, 2020

A lot of people may have heard of Kinesiologists, but are actually not sure what they are and what they do. This post will provide you with an overview of that!

In Ontario, Kinesiologist is a regulated healthcare professional, that means the use of the title “Kinesiologist” is protected. According to the College of Kinesiologists of Ontario, every Kinesiologist has, at minimum, a 4-year undergraduate degree in Kinesiology or similar (i.e. physical education, human kinetics). All Kinesiologists must pass an entry-to-practice exam from the College and submit a criminal record check in order to be registered. Therefore, Kinesiologists uphold a professional standard and always put the public’s interest as their priority.

Furthermore, Kinesiologists are experts in human movement. With the knowledge in biomechanics, anatomy, physiology, and neuroscience, Kinesiologists’ roles are to treat and prevent injury and disease, and to improve movement and performance in people of all ages.

Kinesiologist is a growing profession. You may find a Kinesiologist working in a variety of settings, such as: rehabilitation clinics, nursing homes, fitness clubs, insurance firms, academia, and much more! Some areas of Kinesiology practice include: chronic disease management, injury rehabilitation, ergonomics and workplace safety, fitness training, and return to work planning.
