PHYSIOTHERAPY

Physiotherapy is a physical therapy and rehabilitation specialty that reduces impairments and promotes mobility, function and quality of life through examination, diagnosis, prognosis and physical intervention (a therapy using manual mechanical force and movements). We believe physiotherapy is a specialized profession, beyond usage of electrical devices, heat treatment etc. Based on our education in the Netherlands we take an "Nordic" active approach, resulting in individual treatment with high intensity during one full hour. This gives us the possibility to work on the right outcome for you, by actively involving you in your recovery and guiding you with exercises that you can do at home.

We treat a broad range of conditions, such as:

  • Back pain
  • Neck pain and headaches
  • Shoulder and arm pain
  • Knee pain
  • Sports Injuries
  • Sciatic nerve pain
  • Pelvic instability (pregnancy related) 
  • Chronic (back) pain
  • Muscle problems (sprains and strains)
  • Work related injury
  • Post surgery rehabilitation
  • and more...

MANUAL THERAPY

Manual therapy is a physical treatment primarily used by physiotherapists, chiropractors, osteopaths and osteopathic physicians to treat musculoskeletal pain and disability.

A manual therapist is specialized in the diagnosis and treatment of the musculoskeletal system, specifically the joints, muscles and nerves and its relations among each other with the aim to improve movement.

To influence this regions the manual therapist can use different techniques. This may include moving the joints in specific directions and with different velocities (joint mobilizations or manipulations), muscle stretching, passive movements of the effected body part or letting the patient move into the resistance of the therapist to improve muscle activation and mobility. Also medical training therapy, soft tissue techniques and advice to prevent future injuries are part of the treatment of a manual therapist.

DRY NEEDLING

Dry needling is a relatively new and effective method within the physiotherapy for the treatment of muscle pain (myofascial pain syndrome).  A thin needle is inserted into the affected muscle to provoke a local twitch response and create a relaxation of the muscle fibres. Dry needling uses these needles to reach " trigger points " inside the muscles that are stimulated for a short moment.

A trigger point is the sensitive part of a muscle that becomes painful when compressed and which can also often cause stiffness and referred pain in other body parts away from the trigger point itself.

Dry needling makes use of a 'dry' acupuncture needle which means there is no liquid injected into the muscle. The effect of the treatment comes by the needle itself. Dry needling works with western anatomical and neuro-physiological principles and therefore shouldn’t be confused with acupuncture, even though both make use of the same type of needle.

Trigger points can arise by various reasons, e.g.:

•  Acute, for example after a wrong movement or an accident

•  Chronic, through e.g. a prolonged poor posture

•  Through repetitive strain of for example arm, shoulder and/or neck as during computer work

•  After overload and/or injuries in athletes

•  In spasm of muscle like after meniscus injury or a herniated disc

•  After prolonged immobility e.g. as caused by bracing or a sling

•  Through psychosocial factors such as stress and depression

•  Sleep disturbances 

•  ...
