Kinesiology is the study of human movement with a goal of discovering strategies for human health and performance. It is concerned with the nature, causes, and consequences of physical activity and sport from the anatomy, biomechanics, physiology, tissue pathology, psychomotor behaviour, and social and cultural perspectives. A kinesiological approach applies the latest evidence-based medicine principles to preserve and enhance human movement in all settings and populations.
