DO YOU NEED BIOKINETICS?
If you have any of the following then you may need a Biokineticist…..
Pain in a joint or muscle
Lower back pain
Poor sporting performance
Frequently injured with exercise
A stroke or heart attack
A spinal cord injury
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:
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.
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.
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.
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.
