Sports physical therapy is for all ages and all levels of fitness.

Sports Physical Therapy

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.

Rehabilitation

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.

Injury Prevention

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 might benefit from an exercise program and targeted advice.

Taping

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.

Pre- and Postnatal Physical Therapy

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.

Reconditioning

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.

With both degrees, a Bachelor’s in Dance Theatre – Modern Dance and a Master’s degree in Physiotherapy and Rehabilitation Sciences, I am very well informed about how movement works and with that also dance movements. Often a dancer comes to me with a certain injury where an error in the dance technique is the basis for the problem.

For injury prevention, recovery or simply to improve your dance / ballet technique, I offer personal guidance for dancers who would like to work on it. Together we discuss your request and create a personalised exercise program for your specific problem.

For more information or to make an appointment, you can contact me by telephone or e-mail. An appointment can also be made online!
An appointment lasts about an hour and is not prescribed by a doctor. If you have a prescription, please make a physiotherapy appointment.
