ROBYN TORR BSc Biokinetics
Biokinetics means Life or Body through Movement.
I started my studies at Stellenbosch University in 2010, doing my undergraduate in a Sports Science degree majoring in psychology, I also specialised in Disabilities in my final year. I then continued studying up at the University of Zululand, doing a BSc honours in Biokinetics. We did a lot of practical work at the various biokinetic practices as well as the surrounding hospitals in the area. I was awarded DUX of 2013 BSc Biokinetic honours.
In 2014 I did my internship learning under Jimmy Wright, working at the Sharks Rugby Union, Prime Human Performance Institute, Centre for Sport Medicine Umhlanga Hospital and Sharks Medical. After my internship I moved to Hilton and worked under Morne Booysen for one year. I then opened up my own private practice and now practice from Hilton as well as Nottingham Road.
Biokinetics is the use of exercise as medicine. Biokinetics uses exercise to help with almost any body/joint/muscular problem, such as chronic diseases (Parkinson’s MND, etc), postural problems, all types of joint injuries, acute or chronic, as well as pre and post-operative rehabilitation. We work with all types of populations, from young to old. As well as special needs populations.
Assessments consist of looking at the body as a whole as well as your gait mechanics and posture to find out where the current problems stem from as well as preventing future problems of any sort. Everyone can benefit from a biokinetic assessment as most people have some sort of pain or injury, whether current or old. Biokinetics really focusses on fixing the cause of your pain, problems and injuries as well as preventing future problems, pain and injuries. Often one is compensating without even being aware of it, often these compensations whether it from previous injuries or underlying imbalances of muscles etc, cause further injury or pain down the line. Biokinetics via various tests and analysis finds out where these compensations are and corrects them via exercise. Most of the exercises are very functional body weight exercises, therefore you are able to do it in your own home, which makes it easy to maintain, maintenance of the program is imperative to its success!
I look forward to changing your life through exercise!
