Lana Lourens

BSC BIOKINETICS HONS (NWU)

After finishing my studies at the North West University in Potchefstroom (2014) I moved to George to complete my internship at the practice. The Garden Route has been my home ever since. I m married to an amazing horticulturist, and we live on a flower farm together with our three Bordercollies. I like to think we live a life of adventure and excitement and I believe being outdoors brings fulfillment on a whole other level. The scope of Biokinetics has taught me to love the heart behind the patient and I enjoy working with a variety of people on a daily basis.

The goal of our Biokinetics practice is:

To offer thorough and current assessments and then rehabilitate appropriately and specifically. Rehabilitation is based on the Kinetic Control system that has been developed by physiotherapists and specialists in the sport field from UK, Australia and Nieu-Zeeland. With this system the Therapist determine the uncontrolled movement (give or restriction) and whether it is a high load or low load stabilization issue. According to the findings an Exercise Prescription (Rehabilitation Program)is given to the patient as a tool to control his/her own uncontrolled movement, which is progressed into functional daily activities or sport specific exercises.
