I have been in and out of Physio Therapists offices for years and each one would give me more of the same exercises and...blah, blah, blah. Jessie gave me the most accurate and detailed description of my problems and designed an exercise program especially for me! It was simple and easy-to-follow, plus I asked her for a few simple ideas for exercises I can do at my desk, and she happily obliged! Excellent treatments and a routine that was easily adaptible into my everyday life. Read more

I started going to this place a couple of months ago following a work injury. The office is very clean and uptodate with all kind of equipment you might need. Very friendly and professional staff, and wonderful physiotherapists. I have been seeing Brandon, who has helped a lot during each session by using the right treatments as well as equipment during the sessions, and sending me descriptive photos and videos of my daily routines in an email following each session. I definitely recommend them. Read more

Kinesiologist Vancouver BC

Several health professionals use natural movement to treat different conditions such as muscle pain, physical rehabilitation, or stress and depression. 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 Vancouver BC 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 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.


Vancouver BC 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.
