The Scientific Study of Human Movement. Kinesiology is a multi-disciplinary science encompassing four primary areas of study: Anatomy, Biomechanics, Physiology and Psychomotor Behaviour. Kinesiologists use these sciences to study and evaluate human movement and functional motor performance.

Kinesiology provides a unique background, qualifying a kinesiologist to play an integral role in many aspects of clinical care, rehabilitation, wellness programs, and health education in the areas of sport, recreation, work and exercise.

A Kinesiologist uses evidence based principles to preserve and enhance human movement . They provide ergonomic assessments, job task analyses, custom exercise and rehabilitation programs.
