Body controls kills pain

Specialist areas

1. Pathologies

  • Orthopedic injuries, especially injuries of the tendons, ligaments, joints and muscles (athletes and non-athletes)
  • Post-operative rehabilitation
  • Back and neck and problems originating from spinal discs
  • Back exercises
  • Improving quality of life by reducing pain for a range of osteo-arthritic symptoms
  • Lymphatic drainage
  • Cardio-related exercises and post-operative recovery
  • Migraine
  • Vertigo, in particular BPPV
  • Respiratory physiotherapy

2. Method

  • The patient is screened with regards to their injury and any other underlying problems. A specific therapy is then designed, which also takes their medical history into account.
  • In the course of treatment, the patient is closely observed and instant feedback provided on the healing process.
  • Where manual therapy and techniques are required (this happens in most cases), these are undertaken by Wim.
  • Jo then does training therapy in the gym in order to stabilise the problem and to prevent it from recurring. Most patients will therefore see both Wim and Jo.
  • The manual t echniques are a highly effective combination of manual therapy, osteopathy and classical physiotherapy, depending on the nature of the injury or complaint.
  • Training therapy is based on the principles of exercise training, combined with a particular focus on the entire kinetic chain. For each case, the most appropriate type of exercise is identified, depending on the latest scientific information. This could, for example, include eccentric training therapy (stretching), closed chain exercises (i.e. squats, push-ups), dynamic balancing exercises, core stability training, and other relevant training. As in the sports world, training is geared to the patient’s functional needs and objectives. Last but not least, is the aspect of prevention of recurrence. This is done by providing information and guidance about every-day movements and specific therapy.
