What Is Biokinetics
Biokinetics is concerned with the rehabilitation of injury or disease. Biokineticists prescribe scientifically and medically based exercise and movement programs as a tool of rehabilitation. This form of rehabilitation is also utilized as a means to educate, empower and equip individuals to take control over their physical condition. Megan Thöle Biokineticists in Bryanston and Sandton.
