Among the different specialists – such as, kinesiologists, physiotherapists, etc. - which is the most appropriate for your needs? Here is some useful information to help you choose.

Difference Between a Hamilton ON Kinesiologist and a Physiotherapist

There is often confusion when defining the specific tasks of kinesiologists and physiotherapists. Most people group them together and assume they do the same job. However, they are both very distinct disciplines, and use completely unique treatments.

Physiotherapy:

Physiotherapy is treatment by movement, and includes rehabilitation of the body. It acts at the muscular and articular level, and its goal is to correct movement and posture, as well as improve mobility and muscle quality following pains, illnesses, or surgery via stimulation, massages, and exercise.

Kinesiology:

Hamilton ON Kinesiologists are health professionals who use movement for prevention purposes, treatment, and performance. They are primarily interested in physical activity, and make sure training programs are adapted to an individual’s specific condition. Kinesiologists can extend their expertise in several domains such as ergonomics and athletic performance, as well as the psychological side of the start of a physical activity. A kinesiologist can also help you recover from stress or depression.

Before seeing a kinesiologist, or visiting to a kinesiology clinic, don’t hesitate to call or meet the therapist beforehand to see if you feel comfortable with them, as well as to ask questions about the sessions. They’ll accompany you in your physical activity, and it’s important that you feel comfortable with them.

Several associations and federations exist in Quebec to confirm the legitimacy of kinesiologists, such as the Fédération des Kinésiologues du Québec.
