BIOKINETICS

Biokinetics is the profession concerned with health promotion, the maintenance of physical abilities and final phase rehabilitation, by means of scientifically-based physical activity programme prescription. A Biokineticist is registered with the Health Professions Council of South Africa.
When the expertise of the biokineticist is combined with that of pain neuroscience education (PNE) and an understanding of the psychosocial, or rather psycho-contextual underpinnings of a patient’s story, this creates a meaningful platform to address the mechanisms that drive the pain state and thereby facilitate their process from disability toward autonomy, from pain to freedom in movement and resilience to complete activities of daily living.

MAIN METHODS OF BIOKINETICS

ORTHOPAEDIC REHABILITATION

ORTHOPAEDIC
REHABILITATION

Specific pre- and post-operative or injury related musculoskeletal rehabilitation is practised to obtain and maintain optimal muscular motor function and self-efficacy for activities of daily living.

When it comes to injury prevention and injury rehabilitation, it is important to have knowledge of timing of when to load, what amount of load and what type of load; in order to optimise performance. In addition, sports disciplines require specific skills, which can be harnessed and optimised. The athlete needs to be viewed as a whole, with various bodily systems acting on other systems. For example, systems that govern sleep and digestion and storage are examples of the major influential systems that act and influence each other.

EXERCISE MEDICINE

EXERCISE MEDICINE

Since movement and exercise are at the forefront of medical interventions that are showing excellent preventative results in long term studies about general (and specific) health, the inclusion of exercise into everday life is one of HHH most important missions.

MOVEMENT VARIABILITY

MOVEMENT VARIABILITY

Until we die, we should all aspire to move and function with ease. There are a few must-do’s and many unnecessaries that we can remove from our movements. Learn to mobilise, strengthen, function and build capacity and resilience for activities of daily living and more. The architecture of the athletes’ musculoskeletal system, as well as its functioning for power, endurance, strength and speed, play an important role in performance. Come and learn about which systems can improve your performance and bring about longevity in sport.
