BIO + KINETICS = LIFE + MOVEMENT = LIFE THROUGH MOVEMENT
Biokinetics is the profession concerned with health promotion, the maintenance of physical abilities and final phase rehabilitation through scientifically-based physical activity programme prescription.
Simply put, our primary function is to improve physical functioning and healthcare through exercise.
What We Do
At Dhansay and Roberts Biokineticists we strive to provide quality, evidence-based injury rehabilitation services. Our goal is to treat people as individuals and provide them with rehabilitation strategies that are tailored to their specific injury needs.

There are 3 main types of injuries that Biokineticists and Physiotherapists treat:
Depending on the type of injury, a Biokineticist and Physiotherapist will intervene at different stages of the rehab process.
Because Biokineticists specialise in exercise therapy only, we intervene at the stage of these injuries where exercise is the main form of treatment.
What’s The Difference Between A Biokineticist And Personal Trainer?
Biokineticists use exercise with the primary goal of treating injuries. We might also focus on using exercise to target other physical goals that can contribute positively to injury recovery (E.g., weight loss, cardiovascular fitness, muscle bulk etc).
Personal trainers use exercise with the primary goal of achieving the desired physical goals of their clients (E.g., weight loss, cardiovascular fitness, muscle bulk etc). They often have to work around their client’s injuries, but do not treat injuries directly. Minor injuries can often be managed well this way. For injuries that are not improving or are more complex to manage, a referral to a Biokineticist or Physiotherapist is recommended.
