Rehabilitation is the process to regain full function following injury and involves restoring strength, flexibility, endurance and power. It is achieved through various treatments, exercises and drills. Rehabilitation is as important as treatment following an injury but unfortunately is often overlooked. The aim of a rehabilitation program is to regain pre-injury levels in all aspects of physical fitness. A full rehabilitation and strengthening program are essential to ensure full recovery and in order to prevent re-injuries. Biokineticists are exercise specialists trained to conduct a detailed physical evaluation. Based on the outcome of this evaluation they are able to determine specific strength and conditioning needs. Whether the goals are sport related or merely to improve quality of life. The Biokineticist will perform appropriate tests for each individual.
Management of Chronic Conditions:
Chronic conditions are classified as any pain or illness that lasts a long period of time, and often occur co-morbidly with other conditions. Many chronic conditions tend to occur as a result of long-term exposure to a combination of health-related risk factors, including:
- Non-modifiable risk factors – Age, sex & heredity.
- Behavioural risk factors – Physical inactivity, unhealthy diet & tobacco and alcohol use.
- Environmental factors – Pollution or exposure to infectious agents.
Many common behavioural risk factors such as smoking, drinking, physical inactivity and unhealthy diet are strongly and directly associated with increased risk for developing many major chronic conditions.
As Biokineticists we provide Chronic Disease Rehabilitation aimed at educating the patient about their condition and improving their functional capacity with the goal of improving their quality of life and reversal of modifiable risk factors.
