At Zilke Kolenić Biokineticists, we believe that exercise is medicine! As a Biokineticist, my passion is to guide the world towards a healthier lifestyle. Everybody is unique, with their own strengths and limitations. We hope to achieve results by using monitored, scientifically based exercise programmes within a safe and controlled environment, specific to each individual patient’s needs and goals. This could then allow the patient to either return to activity after injury or, in the case of the elderly, complete activities of daily living with confidence and increased ease. I aim to transform your lifestyle and influence you to make more mindful decisions when it comes to your health. 

WHAT WE DO - what is biokinetics? 

Biokinetics is defined as the science of movement through the application of exercise in rehabilitative treatment. Biokineticists are medical professionals who use specific exercise prescription in order to improve a patients’ physical condition and their quality of life. Their main concerns include health promotion, maintenance of physical abilities and final phase rehabilitation of orthopaedic injuries and chronic conditions.
