Biokineticists are scientific exercise specialists. They are experts in human movement and will prescribe specific exercise routines either as a preventative health measure or to help correct specific health problems.
As a biokineticist, your clients and patients will include people who’ve had an injury that limits their movements due to a sports injury, age, or those who are recovering from a disease or operation.
The field of biokinetics is based on the principle that movement is an essential part of everyday life, for people of all ages. Loss of the ability to move parts of our bodies can affect all aspects of our lives including communication, learning, development, health as well as affecting general quality of life.
