Biokinetic Therapy

Biokinetics can be defined as the science of movement and the application of exercise in rehabilitative treatment of performance.  We concern ourselves with the promotion of health, maintenance of physical abilities and final phase rehabilitation by means of scientifically-based physical activity programme prescription, whether it be land-based or water-based.

Aqua Therapy

Aquatic therapy refers to treatments and exercises performed in water for physical rehabilitation, fitness and other therapeutic benefit. Fish & Field are qualified biokineticists with a special interest in aqua therapy, providing constant attendance to the person receiving treatment in a heated therapy pool. Methods practiced include bad ragaz, watsu and halliwick.

What We Treat

Cardiac Rehabilitation

Cardiac rehabilitation is a supervised program that helps improve the health and well-being of people who have heart problems. Rehab programs include exercise training and education on heart healthy living to help you return to an active life.

Chronic Conditions

A chronic condition is a human health condition or disease that is persistent or otherwise long-lasting in its effects, and includes obesity, diabetes, arthritis, osteoporosis, and more.

Neurological Conditions

A neurological disorder is any disorder of the body’s nervous system. Structural, biochemical or electrical abnormalities in the brain, spinal cord or other nerves can result in a range of symptoms, including those associated with Parkinsons, MND, Stroke, Spinal Injuries, etc.

Orthopaedic Rehabilitation

Anything that is concerned with muscles, ligaments and joints is considered orthopaedic.  This can range from ailments, injuries or diseases that cause knee problems, whiplash, dislocated shoulder, torn cartilages, foot pain, only to name a few.

Paediatric Conditions

A paediatric disorder is any disorder that effects children and could either be congenital or acquired during early development.

Prenatal

Exercise during pregnancy is important and the perfect path to faster postpartum weight loss and recovery.  Prenatal aqua therapy is a safe medium for normal and many high risk pregnancies, and includes benefits such as reduced back pain, less edema and reduced risk of postpartum depression.

What our clients say

I really enjoy hydrotherapy, being in the water is great. It is the perfect environment as there is no pressure or strain on the joints, so it is safe. I am wheelchair bound, so I look forward to my hydrotherapy sessions every week. I firmly believe that the hydrotherapy has contributed to my continued mobility and overall good health.

Kevin Jordan

“I am a 65 years old male.  Following two cardiac bypasses, Jenna-Lee assisted me to return promptly and effectively to a state of fitness and strength – and since 2010-2011 I have been able to exercise circa two hours daily.  She has also been of tremendous help with strengthening my lower spine and neck muscles, and thus avoiding spinal and neck surgery.”

Niko Shefer

“Hi, my name is Freddy Ntumba.  I was involved in a motorbike accident in February 2008 and sustained a spinal cord injury (C6 level) and became paralyzed from the chest down.  In 2009 I started Biokinetics therapy in the pool and have gained a lot of core muscle strength and my endurance has gone sky high.  I am still doing Biokinetics therapy today.”

Freddy Ntumba

Having contracted polio at an early childhood age, I need to maintain a high level of fitness and muscle strength. Aqua-therapy was recommended and I have been doing aquatic exercises for the past 7 months. I would recommend Nicole as she is capable of evaluating your objectives and will identify the aquatic exercises needed to treat your specific condition and help you to achieve your ultimate expectations and objectives.
