Latest In Physical Health Care 

Parkway Physiotherapy + Performance Centre offers the latest in physical health care for families and athletes.


Our Approach to Kinesiology

The most common way clients access the kinesiology team at Parkway is through what we call the “Team Treat model”.

In this model, your physiotherapist will work with you to establish a diagnosis and plan of care, provide manual therapy treatments or IMS needles, soft tissue work and some home-based activity.

This rhythm of physiotherapy and kinesiology can continue through the entire healing continuum.



What is Kinesiology?

Kinesiology is the study of human movement. Kinesiologists study biomechanics and human physiology to improve and maximize people’s efficiency and quality of life. Our kinesiology team is also trained in functional testing. This is especially important when your work or life demands certain levels of strength and flexibility to perform and avoid injury (or re-injury).

It makes perfect sense that kinesiologists form an essential part of the Parkway team.


Our Kinesiologists

Our kinesiology team has vast amounts of expertise in working with all these clients. Communicating closely with your other Parkway clinicians, the kinesiology team will ensure the best care to promote healthy living and improve your quality of life.

Front end staff are always friendly, helpful and knowledgeable and I’ve seen 3 different practitioners over the years and they have all been wonderful! Such a nice environment too.

Our Kinesiology & Personal Training Services

The Team Treat model is not for every Parkway patient, but those who have gone through this type of care have been overwhelmingly enthusiastic. Your therapist will discuss various options that best suit your needs, and this may be one of them.

Beyond the Team Treat model of care, many people visit our kinesiology team solely for creating a strength and conditioning program.

These patients may have a physical challenge, chronic illness that must consider various other factors or they might be athletes looking to prevent injury during an off-season window.
