Lander & Pursad is a biokinetics practice that operates within the Sport Science Institute of South Africa and enjoys a close relationship with the University of Cape Town. As biokineticists, we utilise physical activity as the main therapeutic modality in preventative health care as well as in final phase rehabilitation of the following population groups:

  • CardiacPractice small
  • Orthopaedic
  • Chronic disease

Our clients can expect a comprehensive assessment, which evaluates:

  • Cardiovascular function
  • Respiratory function
  • Muscle weakness and imbalances
  • Flexibility and instability
  • Neuromuscular co-ordination

This is then followed by the prescription of a scientifically and evidence-based exercise programme that is geared toward the improvement of function, performance and quality of life. Our association with the University of Cape Town provides us with insight into the latest exercise science research and the most advanced tools in exercise rehabilitation. Although one-on-one patient to therapist interaction is our central focus, we also offer group Pilates, Healthy Spines and Healthy Moms sessions.

Our expertise as a world class biokinetics facility encompasses a number of physical conditions, including:

  • Orthopaedic injuries
  • Stroke and cardiac patients
  • Arthritic conditions
  • Osteoporosis
  • Joint replacements
  • Back and knee problems
  • Neural conditions
  • Head and spinal cord injuries
  • Pre-operative strengthening
  • Injury prevention
  • Aquatherapy
  • Posture correction
  • Kids pilates
