The mission of the American Kinesiotherapy Association (AKTA) is to promote Kinesiotherapy and improve recognition of the profession through the pursuit of legislation and public relations. The AKTA will serve the interests of its members and will work to enhance the standard of care provided by Kinesiotherapists through educational opportunities.
Kinesiotherapy is defined as the application of scientifically based exercise principles adapted to enhance the strength, endurance, and mobility of individuals with functional limitations or those requiring extended physical conditioning. A Registered Kinesiotherapist’s (RKT) interaction with the patient/client typically is holistic and occurs following the acute stage of an illness and/or disease acting as a bridge between acute illness and physical wellness. Kinesiotherapists have training to complete assessments and develop treatment plans for a variety of populations but we specialize in those with functional limitations. We specialize in both individual and group therapy and exercise prescription for someone with spinal cord injury, MS, Parkinson's, orthopedic limitations, or really just anyone that needs that extra help before they exercise on their own.
