  • Clinical/Chronic Rehabilitation


Cardiovascular disease (CVD) is a general term for conditions affecting the heart or blood vessels. These conditions include high blood pressure, coronary artery disease, peripheral artery disease, stroke, and abnormalities of the heart such as arrhythmia and heart failure.
Cardiac rehabilitation can have many short & long-term benefits:

  • Strengthening your heart and body
  • Relieving symptoms of heart problems, such as chest pain
  • Building healthier habits such as being more physical activity
  • Reducing stress
  • Increasing your energy and strength to make daily activities easier.

Pulmonary Diseases:

Chronic respiratory diseases (CRDs) affect the airways and other structures of the lungs. As a result of shortness of breath/dyspnea many people avoid/decrease physical activity leading to deconditioning.
The beneficial effect of exercise occurs through adaptation in the musculoskeletal and cardiovascular systems, which reduces stress on the pulmonary system during exercise.
Some of the most common conditions affecting the pulmonary system are chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD), asthma, occupational lung diseases and pulmonary hypertension.


Metabolic Syndrome:

Metabolic Syndrome is a term used to describe a cluster of cardiovascular risk factors such as diabetes, hypertension, obesity, high cholesterol.
Physical inactivity could lead to a higher risk of Metabolic Syndrome, training with a Biokineticist we can take all special considerations to these risk factors into account and write an individualized program to your needs.
Regular physical activity is associated with reducing visceral fat, increasing muscle mass, better insulin sensitivity, lower blood pressure and better lipid profiles, which is why physical activity can help treat Metabolic Syndrome.


Neurological conditions such as Parkinson’s, Alzheimer’s, Stroke, Multiple Sclerosis, Epilepsy etc. are all conditions that often presents with muscle weakness, poor balance/coordination, muscle spasms and tremors or a loss of function/sensation.

Biokineticists can help with treatment of people diagnosed with these movement or function disorders that originated from problems with the body’s nervous and neuromuscular system, by prescribing safe and effective exercises to individual needs.
