We all know exercise benefits mental health. However, people with mental illnesses often it find it difficult or close to impossible to find the motivation to exercise, so where do you start? Professional, trained kinesiologists can help make exercise more accessible for everyone. Kinesiologists can work with you to create targeted exercise programs that consider your unique needs and goals.

Kinesiologists are healthcare professionals that use evidence-based research to treat and prevent injury and disease, and to improve movement and performance.

01/18/2024

A significant concern for Kinesiologists and Kinesiology Associations across Canada is Kinesiology being covered by health insurance plans. This would help Kinesiology be accessible to many more Canadians and improve the health and well-being of many across the country.

So how can you help and join the kinesiology movement?
▶️Ask your employer to add Kinesiology to your health benefits package
▶️Use your Health Spending Account for Kinesiology
▶️See a Kinesiologist
▶️Promote and share the work that affiliated Kinesiologists do and the benefits of Kinesiology

Kinesiologists can help you with your health, wellness, and fitness goals in so many different ways, whether recovering from an injury or health crisis, preventing injury, or just increasing movement and performance. Kinesiologists are health professionals that use evidence-based research in their treatments and are great to connect with for anyone at any stage in their health journey.

New Year's is often the time when people are reminded of their health and fitness goals. Make it your goal for 2024 to go see a kinesiologist and see how they can help you on that path to improved health.

💬Comment on or ❤️like this post if you'll be adding "see a kinesiologist" to your list of 2024 new year's resolutions.

Canadian workers with chronic pain are far more likely to describe their overall health and mental wellness as poor. Kinesiologists can help ease the pain through the power of exercise. In Ontario, if your benefits offer a Healthcare Spending Account, you’re covered. If not, tell your employer it’s time to Join the Movement!

Did you know only CKO registrants can practise kinesiology, call themselves “Kinesiologist” and use the associated designations “R. Kin” and “R.Kin (Inactive)” in Ontario? The “Kinesiologist” title and designation are protected under the Kinesiology Act, 2007.

As university-educated health professionals, Kinesiologists apply exercise and movement science to promote health and wellbeing; prevent, manage, and rehabilitate injuries; treat illness and chronic disease; restore function and optimize human performance in the workplace, clinical settings, sport and fitness.

Some areas of kinesiology practice include: health promotion, injury rehabilitation, chronic disease management, ergonomics and workplace safety, fitness and athletics, return to work planning and disability management, public health and more.

Any kinesiologist affiliated with the CKA is a member of their provincial kinesiology association and required to meet core course requirements, have a four year Bachelor’s degree, and meet other requirements of their province.

We would like to thank and congratulate all the students who took the time once again this year to submit an application.

Maintaining a healthy lifestyle, with the right balance of regular physical activity and rest, plays an important role in your overall health and quality of life.

Being active regularly can improve your overall sense of well-being by improving fitness levels and self-esteem, reducing the effects of stress, increasing energy and contributing to positive mental health.

Sufficient rest and sleep is also important. Getting 7 to 9 hours of good-quality sleep on a regular basis, with consistent bedtime and wake-up times can contribute to a healthy lifestyle.

While some Kinesiologists may work as personal trainers or fitness professionals, the scope of a Kinesiologist is much broader. Kinesiologists are healthcare professionals that use evidence-based research to treat and prevent injury and disease, and to improve movement and performance. You will also find kinesiologists working in healthcare settings, clinics, workplaces, and many other settings outside of the gym.

Wherever you may find a Kinesiologist, they will work with you to meet your health and fitness goals.

Image text:
Misconception: Kinesiologists are only personal trainers.
Truth: The scope of a Kinesiologist is much broader than a personal trainer although they may practice as a personal trainer or have a personal training certificate. Kinesiologists are health professionals that require a Bachelor's degree in Kinesiology and continuing education. They can also work in clinics, hospitals, other healthcare settings, or academia.
