The Kinik Effect: Therapeutic and Medical Exercise at Your Fingertips
Kinesiology is the science of movement and the physiological effect of exercise on the human body. Therefore, a kinesiologist is defined as a health professional who uses physical activity and exercises as work tools.
At Kinik, we have developed expertise on the therapeutic and medical effect of exercises. A large majority of muscle or joint pain is due to muscle imbalance, poor alignment or poor posture. Our assessment and our follow-ups allow us to find the right exercises that will target the cause of your pain for long-term recovery.
