Working with children gives me a lot of energy. To get a child involved in the game, I provide variety and place myself in the child’s perception of the world. If this works, it makes me feel good. We are working in a fun way to solve the child’s problem. This creates a beautiful collaboration between therapist, child and parents. Often with good results. It is great to contribute to this as a children’s physiotherapist. I do not only treat the child, but I also have intensive contact with the parents and, if necessary, also with the school, general practitioner, remedial educationalist or other specialism.
I treat children from zero to eighteen years, for example infants with a preferred position or delayed motor development. Or children in toddler age with problems in fine motor skills or gross, but also orthopedic or neurological complaints. Children who are a bit older can also have these complaints, but they can also suffer sports injuries, for example.
By the way, I don’t just treat children. Adults also come to me, for example after knee or hip surgery, with a sports injury or with complaints related to work.
