Active rehab is a program designed to address injuries and help the patient to regain their physical strength as it was before the injury. Active rehab includes the initial assessment which includes checking posture, core stability, muscle balancing, and functional movement.

Then Kinesiologist will plan a custom corrective treatment or exercise program to focus on the specific issues. The therapist will also monitor your progress during the workout to ensure that you’re using the correct form and protocol.

Physiotherapy VS Kinesiology

The main difference between Kinesiology and other physiotherapy treatment is that kinesiology involves a patient’s active involvement to improve overall movement and fitness into consideration. However, physiotherapy is a treatment where the major focus will be on recovery from injury and accidents.

Physiotherapy vs kinesiology
  • Focus: Kinesiology is a treatment that not just focuses on only one part but ensures to focus on the entire body. However, the physiotherapist has their focus on either one or two parts or just targeting the injured area.
  • Practice: Kinesiologists render services in clinics, hospitals, gyms, or wherever the focus is on overall fitness and long-term health. Physiotherapists practice in private clinics, hospitals, or even home.
  • Treatment: Kinesiology provide personalized services for assisting the clients to achieve the desired goals. Physiotherapist provides medical assistance focusing on the injuries and helps to restore patients’ health and movement.
  • Session timing: The sessions of the Kinesiologist are one on one which lasts for approximately 60 minutes. Whereas Physiotherapists can be one on one or could be in a group as well that might last for 30 minutes.
