Frequently Asked Questions
Why see a Biokineticist?
With a biokineticist you have the opportunity to train with a specialized exercise therapist that functions in a holistic manner with other professionals and health specialists. A biokineticist is registered with the Health Professionals Council of South Africa and is also a member of the Biokinetics Association of South Africa. Therefore, a biokineticist is fully qualified and registered to give rehabilitation related advice.
What can I expect?
We start with an initial consultation and thorough assessment. During the initial consultation, a full medical and orthopedic history will be taken and the condition will be discussed thoroughly. The biokineticist will perform appropriate tests to obtain a better picture of where the weaknesses or imbalances are. Based on these findings and the consultation a treatment plan will be discussed in detail.
What happens during the consultation?
A variety of assessments, depending on the conditions, will be done during the evaluation. Hereafter a treatment plan will be drawn up accordingly. These assessments include a range of functional movements to determine muscle strength and/or flexibility imbalances as well as to identify instability and faulty biomechanics. Hereafter, an exercise program specific to the clinical pathology will be prescribed.
