The treatment

In order to give the best possible treatment, we utilize knowledge from the physical/manual therapy, and acupuncture. Diet advice is also given. This means that during treatment, we do not limit our treatment to one technique or method. Each patient receives individualized treatment in order to get the best possible results. If needed, we also can obtain advice from specialists of the Amphia Hospital Breda or from our foreign relationships. We have had a close relationship with the Pain-clinic of Amphia Hospital since 1986. Many patients come to us with a referral from this Pain-department.
Normally the treatment takes one hour. Sometimes a longer time is necessary.
We have special interest in Whiplash, Posttraumatic Dystrophy, Pelvic instability and Crybabies. There is no waiting list for crybabies.
