What is Biokinetics?

Bio = Life

Kinetics = Movement


Movement is a part of everyone’s daily life, no matter what age, gender or level of fitness. However, our ability to move can be affected or lost due to injury, disease or age. As biokineticists, our aim is to prevent, maintain or improve ones physical functionality and health care by prescribing scientifically-based physical activity program prescription.

We use exercise based rehabilitation for people who suffer from chronic disease, orthopaedic injuries (pre and post op) and for people who want to improve their general health and wellness. In order to do this, we evaluate and measure the individuals muscle strength, endurance, power, fitness, flexibility, lung function, blood glucose and blood pressure.
