As a psychosomatic physiotherapist I treat complaints related to stress and tension. For example, headache, burnout, hyperventilation and panic attacks.
I myself really enjoy exercising in nature, such as walking and cycling. I also liked badminton, until I suffered a serious sports injury. A long period of rehabilitation followed. I then felt what it is like to be a patient myself. I still carry that experience with me when I treat people. That’s why I think it’s important to really listen to what patients have to say. After thirty years of working as a physiotherapist, I still think this is the best profession there is.
I think it is important that there is trust between you and me. That’s why I always take plenty of time for the first conversation. I will not only ask about your complaints, but also about social and psychological factors that may be of influence. Then we draw up a treatment plan together. You yourself play an active role in this.
