What is Biokinetics

As described by the Biokinetics Association of South Africa (BASA) whose motto is “Life Through Movement”, the term biokinetics is defined as “the science of movement and the application of exercise in rehabilitative treatment or performance.

 

Biokinetics is the primary health care profession concerned with:

  • Preventative medicine
  • Physical activity as medicine
  • Orthopaedic rehabilitation
  • Sports performance
  • Total well-being
  • Functional movement

This level of care is achieved by the prescription of scientifically sound, evidence based exercise science.

To qualify as a Biokineticist, one must have an undergraduate degree in either Sport Science or Human Movement Science with a post graduate degree in Biokinetics. This requires a minimum of 4 years of study in addition to a 1 year internship with a practice that is recognised and accredited with the Health Professionals Council of South Africa.

A Biokineticist is a clinical exercise specialist that has several roles within the health care sector. Their job involves the promotion of general health and wellness through comprehensive testing and screening. This is used to identify any relevant health risk factors that may be present in addition to educating patients on the importance of these risk factors, encouraging healthy lifestyle habits and implementing strategies to improve these risk factors.
