If you have any of the following then you may need a Biokineticist…..

  • Pain in a joint or muscle

  • Nerve pain

  • Poor posture

  • Lower back pain

  • Scoliosis

  • Poor sporting performance

  • Frequently injured with exercise

  • A stroke or heart attack

  • A spinal cord injury

  • Constant headaches

  • Neurological condition

If you constantly have a niggle or just can't exercise without pain, then you need to see a Biokineticist. One of our qualified Biokineticists will do a thorough physical assessment to establish the underlying cause of the injury and prescribe an appropriate course of treatment to improve your quality of life and performance! There are a number of populations that would benefit from a biokinetics programme:

Healthy Populations:

If you participate in physical activity, and would like to improve your performance in a particular sport, you can book a biokinetics assessment and receive a personalised biokinetics programme. You may want to start participating in exercise, and having an initial consultation with a biokineticist can put you on the right path in terms of your needs. Aspects involved in the assessment involve posture, physical fitness and a musculoskeletal examination to assess strength and flexibility.

Chronic Disease:

You may suffer from a chronic disease such as asthma, diabetes, coronary artery disease or hypertension, and may not know which exercises you should be performing and at which intensity. A supervised exercise programme is highly recommended before you engage in physical activity on your own or in a group. A biokineticist has sound medical knowledge to guide you through initiating an exercise programme. Exercise will boost fitness, improve circulation and improve your quality of life.

Orthopaedic concerns:

You may want to recover from a spinal injury or a muscle disorder, reduce pain in a joint, rehabilitate following surgery, or improve your musculoskeletal strength. Our Biokineticists will tailor a programme for your specific needs following a musculoskeletal examination.

Neurological disorders:

We cater for a range of neurological conditions such as autism spectrum disorder, spastic cerebral palsy, MS, Parkinson’s, brain injury rehabilitation and stroke. These disorders require a specialist familiar with the disorder in order to conduct a neurological assessment and to conduct a rehabilitation programme that addresses weaknesses in the neuromuscular system.
