Christie Smit

BSc Sport Science
BSc Biokinetics

I grew up in Hartenbos and started my academic journey in 2019, studying BSc Sport Science at Stellenbosch University. My dedication led me to pursue an honors degree in BSc Biokinetics at the same institution in 2022. In 2023 I completed my practical year in Stellenbosch at a private practice.

Now, in May 2024, I started working at this practice and decided to move to George, closer to my family. I’m passionate about sports, finding joy in triathlons, which continuously challenge me both mentally and physically. I have a deep appreciation for the entire scope of Biokinetics, particularly in orthopedic rehabilitation. I have a special fondness for working with the elderly as well as children. I really believe in the saying “exercise is medicine,” and I try to practice what I preach. Additionally, I’m excited about never-ending learning and growth in our field, believing that staying curious and adaptable is key.

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.
