What is Kinesiology?

Kinesiology is the scientific study of human movement, often encompassing the anatomy, physiology, biomechanics, and psychology related to physical activity and exercise.  Kinesiology explores how muscles, bones, tendons, and joints work together to produce coordinated and efficient motion. Kinesiologists may apply their knowledge in diverse areas, such as sports performance, rehabilitation, ergonomics, and exercise physiology. Programs in kinesiology may cover a wide range of topics, including exercise science, sports management, motor control, and physical education.

Kinesiologists play a multifaceted role in promoting health and wellness by studying and applying principles related to human movement.
