Our bodily systems internally and externally rely on movement. Movement affects development, learning, communication, work capacity, health and quality of life. Thereby making movement an essential part of everyday life, for people of all ages. It is through movement that people are able to navigate and remain focused and interactive within their environment, be that work or recreational related.
Movement may be decreased or lost gradually over time due to hereditary, aging, injury or disease. Such conditions of movement loss that are linked with chronic and disabling diseases pose additional challenges for patients and their families. Therefore, from a public health perspective, development of improved disease prevention, detection and effective treatment and rehabilitation methods must be a global priority.
The profession of Biokinetics has evolved as a primary health care profession in response to a universal need for quality, accessible, cost-effective health care.
