Our Kinesiologist – Jordan Javier takes the times to answer a question he is often asked.
What is a Kinesiologist?
by Jordan Javier
Kinesiologists are human movement specialists who work with individuals with injuries, pain and chronic disease and help them regain their overall fitness through exercise prescription. I am certified to perform a functional movement screen to determine dysfunctional movement patterns and asymmetries. With the information gathered, a Kinesiologist will provide corrective exercises to improve movement patterns by ensuring proper mobility and stability are utilized by the joints that require them so others do not compensate. By correcting your movement patterns, you can reduce pain from old injuries and prevent new ones from occurring. Whether you’re recovering from a current or previous injury, an athlete trying to make it the next level or just trying to improve your overall fitness, understanding how your body moves will lead to proper exercise technique at the gym and in your daily activities. With proper movement technique, the correct muscles will be activated which will positively translate into your exercise regime and daily activities and at the same time decrease your risk for injury.
