Biokenetics – A new type of functional exercise

Biokenetics is the study of the Science of Movement and the application of exercise in rehabilitative treatment and performance. It is a South African qualification that requires 5 years of education and its primary focus is to improve movement, physical functioning and health care through using exercise as a modality. It incorporates understanding of the latest research in orthopaedic, cardiac and chronic disease rehabilitation and therefore can offer assistance in management and recovery in a wide range of health conditions; from those suffering musculo-skeletal injury to those with diabetes, neurological conditions and chronic cardiac issues.
