Kinesiologists look to optimize the body’s performance, overcome longstanding injuries and reduce chronic pain through exercise and movement. In contrast, a physiotherapist directs their attention to helping clients heal from an acute injury or recurring flare-ups. Kinesiologists work not only on preventative care and rehabilitation but also on performance. Kinesiologists are recognized treatment provider for ICBC active rehab.
