Physical Therapy

What is Biokinetics?

 Bio = Life            Kinetic = motion

Biokinetics is movement-based therapy, where selected exercises are prescribed for injury rehabilitation, chronic disease management, enhancement of physical health and performance. 

A biokineticist completes the clinical team of practitioners, typically working in the final-phase of a patient's rehabilitation process. We address the functional demands for safe participation in your desired activities, as well as environmental factors that might contribute to re-injury or disease.

The first consultation typically involves:

  • Discussing your medical history, the presenting problem and physical demands of your daily life.

  • A physical assessment of the affected area and functional movement, as it relates to performing your daily activities.

  • A prescribed treatment plan which considers the appropriate timeline, your environment, lifestyle and functional goals.

 

Comfortable exercise clothes are recommended for ease of movement.
