BIOKINETICIST - Lee-Ann Nieuwoudt

"Life through Movement"

Biokinetics is defined as “life through movement”.  Movement is a valuable part of our everyday life.  It can be lost due to many factors such as age, injury or disease. 

Biokineticists aim to achieve optimal health and wellness through exercise therapy and prescription.

 

Physical activity is an essential component in the prevention, treatment and management of diabetes, specifically type 2 diabetes.

 

Biokineticists are trained to prescribe exercise and movement programs specific for diabetes patients.They tailor the programs to reduce patient’s glucose levels and fat mass, while taking into consideration their individualised state of health.If the patient has any diabetes complications, these are taken into account when developing the program.
