What can you expect from an appointment with a biokineticist?

The first appointment consists of an evaluation (personal to each individual’s needs), which may involve one or more of the following: Recording a person’s general, medical or condition-specific history to determine any risks of exercise, a physical work capacity test, specific musculoskeletal tests, an electrocardiogram (ECG), blood pressure, range of motion and muscle strength tests, and the evaluation of body posture and body composition. Thereafter individualised exercise program prescription and guidance is provided, along with one-on-one sessions and follow-up assessments.
