What is kinesiology?

Kinesiology is a university-trained health profession specializing in the prevention, emergency care and rehabilitation of musculoskeletal injuries.

The professional field of activity comprises three niches;
1) health promotion and lifestyle coaching;
2) prescription of adapted physical activities and exercises and
3) sports performance.
