What does a Biokineticist do?

A biokineticist is a specialized exercise therapist that operates within the professional scope and ethical standards governed by the Health Professions Council.

Biokineticists often work in multi-disciplinary teams for optimal outcome and are concerned with preventative healthcare, the maintenance of physical abilities, and final phase rehabilitation, by means of scientifically-based physical activity program prescription.

The primary function of a biokineticist is to improve physical functioning and health care through exercise as a modality. This can be for performance enhancement in athletes, for general health promotion or for regaining functionality post injury or -operation. They are also trained to conduct comprehensive physical assessments for cardiovascular, orthopedic, metabolic, and neuromuscular health.

A Pivotal Role in Health and Medicine

Biokineticists serve a crucial function within the allied health professions, working in close collaboration with a diverse array of other healthcare providers. Recognised by and registered with the Health Professions Council of Namibia, they are integral to the medical field. Their expertise lies in the use of exercise as a therapeutic modality - a cornerstone for maintaining and enhancing physical health and function.

They work in harmony with physicians, physiotherapists, dieticians, and other medical professionals, delivering a comprehensive, multidisciplinary approach to patient care. This cooperative approach ensures that patients receive a holistic treatment plan, addressing various aspects of their health and wellness.

In addition, Biokineticists collaborate with sports coaches to optimize the performance of athletes, providing them with exercise regimes that improve physical conditioning, aid in injury prevention, and facilitate recovery.

Whether it's managing chronic disease, rehabilitating injuries, or enhancing physical performance, Biokineticists play a pivotal role in Namibian healthcare by designing and implementing tailored exercise protocols that lead to better health outcomes.

Biokinetic Services in Namibia: Relevant for All
