Kinesiology is the study of human body movement, performance, and function, drawing from the sciences of biomechanics, anatomy, physiology, psychology, and neuroscience. At Neuromotion, all of our therapists use the principles of neuroplasticity to guide their sessions. Neuroplasticity, defined as the ability of the brain to change throughout an individual’s life, helps us understand how movement and changes in the brain are related. The human brain adapts and acquires new motor skills based on repetition of normal, timely and coordinated movement patterns.
Our kinesiologists have an excellent understanding of normal human movement, and work in collaboration with the physiotherapists and occupational therapists, to offer our clients much-needed movement repetition.
Kinesiologists work one-on-one with clients in the clinic, pool and in their homes to achieve their goals. They also assist our physiotherapists with transfers, functional movement training, exercise programs and assistive device modifications.
Neuromotion kinesiologists have taken post-graduate courses for treating individuals with Parkinson’s Disease (PWR!Moves™ Instructor training) and stroke (Bobath Concept for Health Care Workers) and in the use of the functional electrical stimulation bike (FES RT300) and the Lokomat.
