Why is Kinesiology Important?

We are all designed to move! Movement is life. Without health and being able to function, people miss out on playing with their child or grandchildren. They watch as others go do and then wish that they could go too. The process of movement isn't always easy, but the joy of living life as a result has a value beyond measure.
