Faber & De Jager Biokinetics

Exercise Components:

Biokinetics is the Science of movement and the application of exercise in the rehabilitative treatment, with the
primary function to improve the functionality and health of patients through exercise in the final rehabilitative
phase, by means of scientific based exercise program prescription (ExRx).
During the rehabilitative process there are specific components that are addressed to assist in the healing process
of orthopaedic or acute injuries which include:

Controlling pain
Establishing core stability
Re-establishing neuromuscular control (NMC)
Restoring postural control and stability (Balance)
Restoring flexibility and range of motion (ROM)
Restoring muscular endurance, strength and power

It is important to mention that these components are optimally achieved through the combined efforts of a
multidisciplinary team.
