    Frequently asked questions

  • What are the common symptoms that your patients tend to present with?

    They either present with acute sports injuries or long-term injuries that limit them with daily activities or with sports participation. It's a range of conditions I treat – ankle, knee, hip, shoulder injuries and low back pain.

  • What are the treatments that you're able to offer your patients?

    The most important thing is I tailor my treatment to each specific complaint and to each specific sport. It's basically founded and based on what their limitations are and what their perceived limitations are and what they want to get back to.

    For example, if they are limited in running and they want to run a half marathon, but they can't because their hip is hurting or their knee is hurting or their Achilles tendon is hurting, then I will provide them with exercises and advice and tips on how to deal with the things they experience that limit them, but also how they can take care of their body in the best and optimal way to ensure that they don't keep the injury or risk long-term impairment.

    It's a very goal-oriented approach, which is very specific to each sport. I don't hand out the same exercise sheet to each patient and say this is what you need to do. I really try to reason it from their perceived limitations and their question to me or the things they want to get back to.

  • What are your areas of sub-specialist interest?

    I've recently qualified as a Masters in sports physiotherapy. I graduated from a university in the Netherlands. That's also the reason why I started working in London because I used to work in the Netherlands before. My subspecialties are related to sports such as long distance running, marathon running and any type of high-impact or team-based games, like rugby, football, handball, cricket, etc.

    I think my subspecialty is making a movement analysis of what that patient has problems with. For example, an ACL rehabilitation, that will be very often changing of direction, turning or twisting, accelerating or decelerating, things like that. Therefore, my subspecialty is getting them back to safe return to play and preventing their future injuries.

    Basically, getting people back to good movement within their sport and my subspecialty focuses mainly on running, endurance sports and contact sports.
