Kinesiology | Downtown Edmonton

“In bodies, a movement anywhere will send out a wave of response through the structure: the whole body participates, and the better organized it is around the skeletal core, the more clearly it reverberates. A person whose musculature is either slack or bound by excessive tension cannot act either as delicately or as powerfully as one that reverberates more freely.”
—Alexandra Pierce

Kinesiology

Kinesiology is the science of human movement, applying the latest evidence based medicine principles to preserve and enhance human movement in all settings and populations. It is a multidisciplinary science that strives to be the leader in prevention of injury and chronic disease. Integral Kins employ exercise as the tool for management of injury and chronic disease and are dedicated to improving athletic performance, health and the overall quality of life.

As university trained professionals, Kinesiologists can help prevent and reduce the risk factors for some of the most common serious medical conditions that affect Canadians, such as coronary heart disease and diabetes. Integral Kins know that exercise and physical activity are keys to a healthy life. This helps you recover from your injury properly and helps you move better, live longer & be healthier.

Testimonial

FUN, FRIENDLY AND PHENOMENAL…

Those are the three words that best describe the treatment you will get from Adam. Adam is a genius when it comes to physiotherapy!

I would highly recommend Adam to anyone with any type of skeletal problems such as those I had exhibited. He is very thorough and very knowledgeable…and he gets results!!

Jade is the best! She kept me safe while recovering from a back injury and working full time. I found she was really great at adapting exercises and treatment to my pain level.

It is easy to see that Adam loves his job and genuinely wants to help his patients. He brings a sense of humor and a huge amount of knowledge to his work. I would recommend Adam to anyone looking for a great physiotherapist.

Jade in particular was an exemplary PT with an unprecedented aptitude for combining treatment with compassion. It’s rare to see someone so passionate and so dedicated to delivering exceptional care every single day. I would certainly recommend her services to newcomers because she explains the etiology of injuries well and works hard to facilitate recovery during sessions and offers good advice to work on after the session is complete.

Thank you Adam, you are the most educated professional I have ever worked with and without your help and teamwork, my members would not be able to sustain the quality of life that they deserve!
