Rodgers masters included the study of South African triathletes. The study evaluated and compared racing and training triathletes and their previous six months of injuries by partaking in a questionnaire, followed by being tested on the functional movement screen with the aim of assessing possible injury prevention.

He is also an avid mountain biker and partook in triathlons for three years, being apart of the Trifactri triathlon team, where he made the Gauteng triathlon team.

The practice of Biokinetics is “life through movement”, and we at Samantha Dunbar Inc. strive towards this end to not only achieve this but guide our patients through it.
