Bio + Kinetics = Life + Movement = Life through Movement
A Biokineticist can provide treatment to people from all walks of life. Athletes, the elderly, children, those with certain chronic conditions such as Diabetes and heart disease can all benefit from the assistance and guidance of a Biokineticist.
Biokinetics helps you with the following:
Biokinetics helps to prevent chronic conditions and injuries. Exercises are used as movement therapy based on how your body reacts to exercise. The exercises our biokineticists suggest help with overall health and physical problems.
Maintenance of Physical Abilities
Biokineticists have the knowledge of how your muscles, bones, joints and ligaments function. They understand the part that they play in allowing you to move well during everyday activities as well as during sport.
Doing the right exercises in the correct way is the right way to solve biomechanical problems after trauma or surgery. Biokineticists know how to do this correctly to ensure that you get back to full health again.
Physical Activity Programme
A biokineticist has the sound medical knowledge to guide you through initiating an exercise programme that will improve physical wellbeing, boost fitness, improve circulation and improve your quality of life.
