The musculoskeletal system
Our bodies are made up of various structures and systems that when working, will produce bodily movements and functioning as seen and experienced daily. One such system is the musculoskeletal system which is made up of 2 sub-systems as the name denotes. The two subsystems are known as, muscle and skeleton (the bodily structure made up of bone) with all their accompanying tendons, ligaments, cartilage and connective tissue.
The muscles of our body are attached to the bones of our skeleton and a stimulus or information sent towards this system will either result in the wanted movement of certain joints or the restriction of unwanted movement.
Biokinetics and the musculoskeletal system
The musculoskeletal system has an amazing ability to rapidly heal after injury or to restore function after having been compromised. Overuse, underuse or abuse of this system, either at the gym or at the office, are all factors that disrupt and compromise normal functioning. However, if the correct stimuli are provided, proper functioning of this system will be restored and maintained.
Biokineticists are trained exercise specialists, who are able to prescribe exercise of the correct type, intensity and duration to provide the best stimuli for addressing the specific musculoskeletal conditions
What to expect at a biokinetic assessment and treatment/rehabilitation session A Biokineticist will use movement as the primary treatment modality for a musculoskeletal condition. His or her emphasis will be on treating the cause of the problem rather than the symptoms. For this reason, the Biokinetcist will look at all parts of the body (static and dynamic) that can have an influence on the symptoms. After having identified the factors impacting on normal function, the Biokineticist will determine the interventions (exercise protocol) that’s safest and best suited to the individual for restoring function.
It is important to remember that upon execution of the exercise protocol (under the supervision of the trained eye of a Biokineticist), after the initial assessment, the Biokineticist will continue to assess movement in order to refine and adapt the exercises. The Biokinetic consultation or assessment is a continuous process which never stops until the desired outcome of the restoration of patient confidence and physical ability is achieved.
