If you’re trying to manage a chronic inflammatory condition, a local kinesiologist can help. A local kinesologist applies the study of human movement to their practice. That means they use scientific methods to treat patients, whether it’s biomechanics to improve your gait or anatomy to apply acupressure techniques. From muscle release and to fitness and nutritional advice, a local kinesiologist can help patients who have inflammatory conditions such as rheumatoid arthritis, vasculitis, gout, ankylosing spondylitis, psoriatic arthritis, osteoarthritis of the foot and ankle joints and pseudogout. A local kinesiologist is also a valuable member of your healthcare team following a surgery, such as a hip replacement due to arthritis. A local kinesiologist can work with you and your local rheumatologist to create an ideal treatment and nutritional plan for your inflammatory condition, whether it’s shoulder arthritis or fibromyalgia. They can also work with your other medical providers as needed, including a local massage therapist, nutritionist, family physician, chiropractor, personal trainer, endocrinologist or cardiologist.
