I graduated from Stellenbosch University in 2005 where I studied HONS DEGREE IN BIOKINETICS and completed my internship at DBC back and neck clinic in 2006. I’ve been in practice for 8 years and we recently opened a fully equipped exercise and rehabilitation facility within the Manor Medical Centre in Gallo Manor, Sandton.
We prescribe safe and individualised exercise and rehabilitation programmes for conditions such as: Diabetes, hypertension, cardiac rehab, coronary diseases, cholesterol, osteoporosis, osteoarthritis, back and neck pain, post-operative rehabilitation, and metabolic conditions incl. Obesity, diabetes and metabolic X syndrome. We also cater for young children with low muscle tone and poor postural control. We also do consulting work for attorneys and perform medico legal assessments for third party RAF claims. I was an avid sportsman myself and played provincial rugby and received provincial colours for athletics all at senior level.
Biokinetics is for all ages, the young and the not so young alike. We also do blood pressure monitoring and heart rate monitoring during rehabilitation and exercise sessions. Often Biokineticist’s work hand in hand with other health professionals, including GP’s, physiotherapists, podiatrists, orthopaedic surgeons and other specialist physicians.
