Lephalale Biokineticist a great achiever

Winile Mothsoane was born and raised in Hluhluwe Kwa-Zulu Natal. She studied BSc Sports Science and did her Honors in Biokinetics at the University of Zululand. She first moved to Lephalale to do her internship a few years ago, and it has been her home since. She then did her Masters in Sports and Exercise Medicine through the University of South Wales in the United Kingdom (UK).

She is running her biokinetics practice that is situated at SrixZone Gym in Onverwacht.
She works as a senior consulting Biokineticist in the Limpopo Academy of Sports based in Polokwane, where she is involved with under 18 Blue Bulls rugby team that plays in Craven Week. She has worked with the Limpopo Baobabs, provincial indoor lady’s junior volleyball team that has been national champions four years in a row and a beach volleyball team that represented South Africa in Namibia during zone 6 games. She has also worked with the junior softball team where some of our provincial players were selected to be part of the national team that played internationally. She has had an honor of being selected to represent South African Rugby Union (SARU) as a strength and conditioning female coach in the World Rugby women’s high-performance training with other coaches from 16 different countries.

She is currently serving in the Biokinetics Association of South Africa (BASA) board as the international director. They are busy preparing for their first “International Biokinetics Week” where we aim to promote biokinetics globally.

“As Biokineticists, we have a broad scope of practice, we are trained to treat patients with orthopedic conditions, sports injuries and chronic diseases through preventative and rehabilitative exercise programs that are scientifically based and suited for each patient. Patients do not always need to have a referral letter to consult, be it with back pain, a struggle with diabetes or hypertension or they just want to improve their quality of life and make lifestyle changes. Like other medical practitioners, we register with the Health Profession Council of South Africa (HPCSA) and patients can use their medical aids to pay for consultations. “

“I enjoy the thrill that comes with the involvement in sports, where our athletes go out and perform after months of preparations. The beauty that comes with seeing postural changes and transformation on a patient who has been struggling with pain because of scoliosis, or an elderly who couldn’t walk from their bedroom to the bathroom without holding on to the wall due to pain and muscle weakness finally driving themselves, dancing and taking ownership of their lives again. The work we do as Biokineticists is rewarding on many levels, we use exercise as medicine, appreciating and promoting life through movement,” she concluded.
