The main difference between a Biokineticist and a Physiotherapist is the phases of an injury that you would see the practitioner. You would see a Physio in the first phase of treatment where he/she will use more “hands on” therapy to modulate and treat pain, inflammation and other acute and chronic conditions. Once you have regained your range of motion, you would then visit a Biokineticist. Biokinetics uses exercise and movement as a treatment modality to not only strengthen and improve function but to also correct the cause of the problem/injury.
