Meet Kate Hayes, one of our Biokineticist & Physical Rehabilitation Therapists.
As part of the launch of our new clinic, we are profiling some of our key practitioners. Find out what they do behind the scenes.
What role do you do?
I am the Biokineticist at the Practice, I use exercise as my form of medicine to help individuals achieve full quality of life. I look at movement patterns, muscles activations and Biomechanics to solve the current pain or limitations that an individual may be experiencing.
What inspired you to become a Biokineticist?
I have always have a love for sport and being active. When I was young I said to my mother that I do not want to work behind a desk and stare at a computer all day. I am a creative person so Biokinetics gave me to combination of exercise, sport and a form of creativity. A great blend of all that I love.
