Specialisations

Do you have any injury resulting from exercise participation and/or sports? I can help you in your discomfort. Through targeted exercises, physical therapy treatments and advice we’ll get you as soon as possible back on the playing field. – For all ages and levels of ability.

Due to a variety of causes – such as an injury or trauma, disease, medical treatment such as surgery and their side effects, a developmental disorder, etc. – you might need to get back, keep, or improve abilities that you need for daily life. I’ll help you improve your physical functioning needed to perform different activities. During the therapy sessions we’ll work towards specific and individual goals.

A loss of physical condition due to inactivity might be caused by the loss of function in a certain part of the body, or simply by a long break from physical activities. An individualized exercise program will be designed to build up your strength, core stability, endurance, flexibility and mobility. A conditioning program will be personally coached and provided as one-on-one fitness training.

Preventing an injury or a re-injury is an important aspect of sports physical therapy. Are you planning to return to specific physical activities after a long break? Then you might benefit from an exercise program and targeted advice. Are you very active in sports participation? Prevent most common injuries or any re-injuries with a sport specific exercise program.

Complaints due to postural and hormonal changes during a pregnancy or recently after delivery can be addressed through physical therapy. Usually after 4-6 weeks post-partum you can start an exercise program to get you back in shape.

Taping might be used with certain injuries to relieve your pain or to help your moving pattern. It is commonly used to improve joint stability, enhance your athletic confidence, facilitate normal movement, reduce injury recurrence and to prevent injuries.

Dance Injuries

Excerpts - Based on pieces of Truus Bronkhorst, directed by Marc Van Loon - Fontys Dance Academy

As a dancer you might encounter all kinds of injuries that limit your dance abilities. If you find yourself in pain with a certain movement, I can help and coach you back on the dance floor. It’s also possible you have trouble achieving a specific movement or have postural difficulties. As a former dancer and dance teacher I have a great understanding of a dancer’s body. I also recognise the movement abilities needed to perform at your best level. Come find me if you have any problems that hinder you to dance at your best.

Musician Injuries

Marie De Bry - www.mariedebry.com

Particular problems, often chronic due to repetitive movements, frequently plague musicians. During my physical therapy studies I focused my attention to such repetitive strain and overuse injuries. These are typically developed over time due to excessive stress on muscles and tendons. They can have a negative impact on performance or even career. If you find yourself suffering from such injuries, chronic or acute, don’t hesitate to contact me. I’ll help you get back to unhindered music making.
