WHAT IS KINESIOLOGY?

Kinesiology is the study of human movement. Rather than supply a one-size-fits-all form of recovery, kinesiology is practiced as a means of improving your lifestyle, preventing and reducing the impact of serious health conditions, and creating an active rehabilitation program based entirely on your own individual needs. This is especially helpful to those who have been in a car accident or to assist with various and complicated medical conditions. Some benefits of receiving kinesiology include: increased strength, increased flexibility, greater cardiovascular fitness, better posture, and improved movement patterns. We offer hour-long one-on-one kinesiology sessions so that all of your recovery needs are completely met and fulfilled.

What Our Patients are Saying

Nova Active Rehab was a vital part of my rehabilitation from a recent car accident. Prior to this I was undergoing treatment but not achieving the results needed to get back to where I was before the accident. I thank Thomas and Nova Active Rehab for the detailed program tailored to my needs to get results.

I have finished my rehab program with Thomas. Looking back on my progress, I really want to thank the Nova staff and Thomas for their help and support. Rehab is not easy. Thomas has been very professional and detail oriented in figuring out my muscle weaknesses and finding ways to improve them.

I really want to let you know how wonderful working with Matthew was.  I am stronger than when I first came to work with him, but more so, he taught me stretches and movements to continue my healing beyond active rehab.  Most importantly, Matthew was very personable, took the time to listen to me to ensure I was getting the best out of my exercises, and was always so encouraging.  I want you to know Matthew is an amazing therapist, and I miss seeing him every week!
