How Our Unique Vancouver Kinesiology and Active Rehab Services Will Help You Get Your Goals on Track

Our consults and initial visits normally begin with the Selective Functional Movement Assessment (SFMA). This rapid head-to-toe assessment helps us understand how the whole body and local areas affect your issue. Detailed assessment guides effective program development designed to rehabilitate injury and reoptimize function. 

Our kinesiologists aim to educate clients in order to safely and effectively perform all exercises within an individualized program. Exercise program design is based upon current standards of practice backed up by current research and tried-and-true methods. 

Our coaches bring considerable experience, studies and mentorships in strength training, mobility and a wide range of sports. We also offer active rehabilitation services for those who want to move pain-free and get back to pursuing their goals. Our goal is to help anyone who is ready to move beyond pain and into performance – however that is defined for your lifestyle.

Speaking of the SFMA head to toe assessment, our physios, chiros, massage therapists, and kinesiologists have ALL studied to ensure we can see the body through the same lens. With this ability, we then apply our unique individual skills to help you reach your goals. In time, clinicians learn to understand one another’s strengths and the client wins.

Here's what they say:

I highly recommend Johnny (RMT) as I have been booking sessions with him for hip/lower body issues. My posture, flexibility, and movement have drastically improved within a few sessions. Big thanks to Johnny as I believe these results were made possible by his massage techniques, patience in listening to what I want to achieve, and his genuine desire to help get me to where I want to be. Johnny has an athletic, multi-sport background and was able to educate me on ways I can improve my movements in hockey and golf via stretches, therapy, and muscle groups to target, which I found to be very valuable. Thanks to Johnny, my experience at the clinic has been excellent. In addition, the clinic is very clean, online booking system is straightforward, and parking is convenient.

As an ageing athlete holding on to whatever years he has left doing sports, I consider Heather to be one of.....if not, the BEST Physio therapists I've ever had. Professional, Considerate and Respectful.

I’ve been doing strength training with Shauna after an injury — this is my first time working with a strength coach and I’m beyond blown away. Her knowledge and expertise are so valuable, and her approach runs totally counter to all of the toxic diet/fitness culture stuff I was afraid of encountering. I feel safe and strong and supported. Can’t recommend enough!!

FAQ - things people ask us about Kinesiology / Active Rehab

Kinesiology is the science of human movement and it’s impact on health, society, and qualify of life. It is a very broad field of study that includes:

  • Physiology
  • Biomechanics
  • Psychology
  • Motor Learning
  • Sociology, and many more! 

Kinesiologists / strength coaches and personal trainers may seem very similar. They both are trained to help clients work towards their fitness goals through individualized  exercise programs. Sometimes the names are even used interchangeably, but there are some key differences:

  • Scope of Practice: Personal trainers are trained to mostly work with healthy, uninjured clients Practicing kinesiologists have in-depth knowledge of exercise prescription and active rehabilitation that can be applied to both healthy and clinical populations. 
  • Education: Kinesiologists undergo a 4 year bachelor’s degree at an accredited university, with specific core content and are required to continue their education on a yearly basis. Personal trainers are required to complete a certificate that can be completed in as little as 6 months (or less). 

What are your goals? What would you doing if you are at 100%? These are just a few questions we ask our clients when they first come to see one of our practitioners. You can also ask yourself this when deciding who to book with. If you are pain-free and your aim is to improve your fitness or exercise technique, you could start with a strength coach. If you’ve got some aches and pains or a persistent injury, other disciplines may be better to start.

We strive to provide  seamlessly integrated collaborative treatment. Our clinicians work together on a regular basis to understand what each us bring to the table. If you start in one discipline, you may be referred to another. At the end of the day, we want to provide you with a plan of care to best meet your needs.
