What is biokinetics?

Biokinetics is about more than exercise. It’s about using science to promote healthy lives.

A Biokineticist is a specialized exercise therapist who works alongside allied health and medical practitioners and is recognized by and registered with the Health Professions Council of South Africa.

We aim to improve a person’s quality of life through individualized assessment and exercise prescription in both clinical pathology (acute and chronic) and performance enhancement.

Biokinetics is concerned with the rehabilitation of injury or diseases. We use exercise to balance muscle strengths, weaknesses, lengths and tightness around joints.

About Jaco

"I developed a tremendous passion for biomechanics – the way and the why behind the body’s movement. As a result, I find great joy in working with orthopedic (joint related) injuries, sport injuries, adolescents and developing sportsmen and –women, irrespective of experience or age. If you partake regularly, competing or not, you are an athlete.

Over and above my love for the work that I do, I enjoy the outdoors and all things natural. Technology has some perks. Load shedding might be one of the best things that have happened to our relationships. My family and friends are the most precious things I have. I take time to indulge in good wine and succulent food. Pastries are my Achilles heel.

 

A good workout is the best medicine for a bad mood. Spending time in Mother Nature gives your brain space to breathe. I am inspired by people who step up to the plate and beat the odds. I value knowledge and books. I have a special place for silver-haired adults, as they have the best advice for most things life brings your way. 

Above all, I am extremely passionate about the people that come into my practice: the history, the injuries and the goals that come with them."
