Kinesiology is the scientific study of human movement, performance and function - also known as human kinetics. Kinesiology applies the science of anatomy, physiology, biomechanics, psychology and neuroscience to human movement and function. Kinesiology employs evidence based scientific research and assessment to assist in the prevention and rehabilitation of injury, lifestyle diseases and other physiological conditions, along with the enhancement of human performance, in environments such as work and sport.
Kinesiologists are "human movement specialists". Statistics Canada defines Kinesiologists and related professions under the National Occupational Classification (NOC) 2011 defines kinesiologists and related professions (Category 3144).
