What's Involved in Rehabilitation?
Exercise rehabilitation involves progressive and structured physical activity. It helps patients regain strength, movement, and function. A kinesiologist designs a program that is safe and appropriate for each patient. The goal is to help the patient achieve fitness, attain their optimal level of function and reduce pain.

Kinesiology is the study of muscles, their attachments, and how they move the skeleton with respect to gravity. Because it studies movement, kinesiology is particularly useful in rehabilitation. A kinesiologist recommends exercises for orthopedic injuries and discusses programs that help to restore muscle tone, increase bone density and reduce muscular atrophy.
