The aim of biokinetics is to improve a person’s quality of life through individualised assessment and exercise prescription in both clinical pathology (acute and chronic) and performance enhancement.
Biokinetics is concerned with the rehabilitation of injury or diseases like cardiovascular. It uses exercise to balance muscle strength, weaknesses, lengths and tightness around the joints.
Differences Between Physio & Biokinetics
The rehabilitation process starts with Physiotherapy through assessment and diagnosis. The initial aim is to control pain and swelling, restore normal movement around the joint and initiate rehabilitation.
A biokineticist would then assess the ankle for problem areas and prescribe an exercise program to address the highlighted issues. The aim is to prevent re-occurrence or additional injuries due to the body over-compensating.
