Physiotherapy is the holistic application of movement sciences. A physiotherapist goes through years of schooling to treat patients who suffer from function or mobility issues. These can be due to injury, illness, surgery, or even chronic diseases such as arthritis, diabetes, and others. A physiotherapist’s treatments are prescribed with the aim of helping the body heal.
Kinesiology is the study of human movement. A Kinesiologist uses their deep understanding of anatomy, physiology, biomechanics, psychomotor behaviour, and other fields to improve human function and performance. Kinesiologists treat health and performance issues with the aim of optimizing the body’s potential. Both practitioners have spent years learning about how the human body moves, and are skilled in therapeutic exercises. Both are regulated health professions.
