What can you expect from manuel therapy?
A manual therapeutic diagnosis is made on the basis of an interview and a physical examination. Based on this, the therapist will give you an explanation of the possible cause of your complaints and a treatment plan will be discussed. If necessary, a (back) referral to the general practitioner or specialist will take place.
The treatment of this therapy may consist of:
- Homework exercises
- Back training
- Muscle strengthening exercises in our exercise room

Manual therapist Dorien van de Winkel has years of experience in treating this therapy. “In recent years I have increasingly combined manual therapy with dry needling. The direct muscle relaxation that this treatment method provides helps very well to further loosen the spine afterwards.”
