Kinesiologists in the News and Considered essential to Health

This is from "The 3rd Rendez-vous de la gestion des maladies chroniques (chronic disease management conference) was held in Montréal on November 25 and 26, 2010. At the dinner on the last day,

Quebec’s minister of health and social services, Mr. Yves Bolduc, said the word “kinesiologist” at least three times during his speech.

In fact, he stressed the need for a multidisciplinary approach (preventative as well as secondary) in which kinesiologists would play a key role. In his opinion, kinesiology is one of the health professions that will be essential to managing chronic diseases. He also stated that physical activity is not being utilized to its full potential  and encouraged the participants to take greater advantage of this tool. Several doctors were seated at my table, including a Diabète  Québec director, a member of the Collège des médecins du Québec
and a senior official from Quebec’s department of health and social services. All were nodding in agreement and saying, in a friendly tone, “We are counting on you kinesiologists”. The senior official
even asked if there was a labour shortage in our profession."

To read more about why working with a Kinesiologist, such as Smart Athlete, visit the Ontario Kinesiology Association Website 

To support the further formation of the College of Kinesiology and move towards integrating Kinesiologists into a holistic Health Care approach, including Medical benefits / insurance please voice your concern to your employeer, insurer and local government.

Question via Email - Posterior Knee Pain

Hey Peter:
 I have been riding for a few months now pain free and then suddenly got a pain behind my knee the other day. Do you have any idea on what it might be ?  I can't think of anything I have changed, done differently or strained in the last week or so.

1) ICE 3-5x daily for at least 15min, you eat 3x a day so thats a good time to do it (wrap it on with a compression bandage)
  ... i wouldn't stretch it too much till your over the pain/inflammation phase
   ... then looking at calf / hamstring flexibility / mobility could be good idea
    ... some light calf stretching and working on the hips now is likely good idea to work above and below 

2) check your cleats are aligned and not pushing foot into weird angle ... feet should go where they want generally (ie. toe in / out) 
     ... first check would be that nothing has changed or the side that is bugging you hasn't shifted/come loose/bent. 

3) saddle height to high ? or sadddle to far back ... might be worth moving saddle a bit further forward ... you looked too far back on our ride

4)  excessive cleat float or worn out cleats - if its jiggling around or not enough support can cause some issues in the support tissues . 

5) just watch you haven't increased intensity/volume too fast or started strength/low RPM type training too fast/soon.

Let me know how it goes!
