Kinesiology is the study of the dynamics of human movement, and its components (anatomical, physiological, neurological, biochemical, biomechanical, neuromotor, psychological) in interaction with the environment.. The term comes from the Greek word “kinesis” which means “to move”. The practice of Kinesiology is the assessment, treatment, and prevention of movement disorders, to improve the function in the areas of sport, recreation, work, exercise, and activities of daily living.
