Biokineticist is an exercise specialist who increases a person’s physical condition and the quality of life by means of physical assessment and rehabilitation through exercise.
Rehabilitation is the process to regain full function following injury and involves restoring strength, flexibility, endurance and power through specific exercises.
Rehabilitation is as important as treatment following an injury but unfortunately is often overlooked.
The aim of a rehabilitation program is to regain pre-injury levels in all aspects of physical fitness. A full rehabilitation and strengthening program is essential to ensure full recovery and in order to prevent re-injuries..
We identify postural changes and altered movement patterns that are placing an increased amount of stress on the muscles and joints and assist in rectifying them in order to reduce symptoms. This generally serves as a long term solution to musculoskeletal injuries, as well as prevention for reoccurrence.
Biokinetics is recognised by and registered with the Health Professional Council of South Africa.
