What is Kinesiology?

Kinesiology is the scientific study of human movement, performance and function. By applying the science of biomechanics, anatomy, physiology, psychology, and neuroscience, kinesiology can help individuals of all ages and physical abilities:

  • Treat and prevent injury and disease
  • Achieve health and wellness goals
  • Improve movement and performance
  • Improve quality of life

Exercise and physical activity are essential components of health management and optimization. Engaging in regular physical activity is associated with numerous physical and mental health benefits including decreased risk of CVD, stroke, type 2 diabetes, some forms of cancers, and all-cause mortality. Other benefits include lowered blood pressure, improved weight management, and prevention and improvement in depressive and anxiety disorder symptoms.

“Due to my active lifestyle I have had numerous injuries ranging from minor to serious. The treatment at Right Move Physiotherapy has been the most beneficial, personalized and knowledgeable care that I have ever received. I have been receiving shockwave treatment as part of my physiotherapy care plan and have found significant relief following my sessions.  I have worked with all three health care professionals and each has helped me regain the confidence and strength I needed to get back to my athletic goals!”

“I have been managing myofascial pain for a few years and have been treated by multiple physiotherapists and other health care service providers in Kingston.  Ian Budge took a slightly different approach with my physiotherapy plan, which has provided me with the best results in correcting the root cause, putting me on the road to recovery and regaining the athletic confidence I had lost.  I have tried several different trigger point treatments (including lidocaine), but Ian’s dry needling has been the most effective by far and I find myself actually looking forward to it! ”
