My Story

I am a young, vibrant and sports loving woman, fascinated by the human body. Our bodies are fascinating machines especially our ability to create force, become stronger and even tissue healing.

I love working with people, hearing their stories, learning different things and spending quality time with the people I care for. As a biokineticist I am devoted towards treating my patients with the most effective treatment that is evidence based. Thus my search for experience regarding healing and rehabilitation through movement and exercise therapy, will continue to grow. I believe that movement prevents injuries and helps with healing.

My training background

I’ve danced for 17 years. The obvious decision for me was to continue pursuing my passion for dance by studying at Tshwane University of Technology, where I received my BTech Degree in Performing Arts and Dance (Cum Laude). Although I loved dancing, the treatment of injuries and medical side of sport interested me too much. So, I completed my Sports Science Degree (BSc) at The University of Pretoria. Then I completed my Honors degree in Biokinetics (Cum Laude).

I completed additional qualifications such as a First Aid Level 3 and Physical Ability Analysis (PAA), used in industrial and ergonomic settings. More recently I completed a BTE Primus RS qualification. This allows me to understand and test orthopaedic patients with specialized equipment. As a biokineticist, I enjoy expanding my professional knowledge constantly. I’ll never stop learning something new.

My interests

I find purpose in my profession when treating patients and seeing the progress they make. A long-term dream is to pursue neuro-spinal research and how exercise as a therapy could affect the brain during rehabilitation.

Partnership with Well Health Pro

I’m inspired by the people I work with at this private practice. I work alongside a range of experts and we’ve built a strong relationships with each specialist in their field, to bring you the some of the best world class treatment protocols that’s been researched, trailed, tested and proven to work.

Where does the biokineticist come in?

Many of the physiotherapists’ patients need additional therapy alongside their physio treatment in order to enhance and encourage healing. This is where I come in. I am able to assist you after the physio has treated your pain, swelling and loss of movement. I improve, built and reinforce the correct movement pattern, distribute weight across other areas, strengthen and so much more.

So, we need to tackle the cause of your injury. I do an evaluation and see where I can add to your program. Depending on your evaluation results I prescribe an exercise treatment program for you to assist in the long-term management of your condition.  Thus, I see myself as part of a great team who works towards providing the most effective treatment that work for your body, build, type, stage of healing, etc.

As a Biokineticist I’m skilled in techniques of human movement analysis, posture analysis, orthopaedic evaluations, chronic disease management and exercise / treatment program prescriptions. I am constantly increasing my knowledge regarding physiological, anatomical and biomechanical aspects of the body. Increased knowledge allows me to apply the most relevant treatments. I am professional, friendly, trustworthy and eager to learn.

Labarre’s Bio interests & experience

My Bio Practice

I completed my biokinetics internship at BMW. My biokinetics practice was established in 2019, where orthopaedic injuries or chronic conditions is my special interest. As part of my treatment I prescribe exercise programs, and I’ve done additional training in industrial biokinetics. This includes ergonomic assessments of the workplace.

Many years of dancing, both recreational and professional allows me to understand the demands on an athlete and the rehabilitation process when an injury occurs. I enjoy hiking and squash to stay active and keep my body healthy.
