A lot of sports are practiced in the Netherlands, both professionally and recreationally. This results in more than one million sports injuries per year. From a changed vision of health care, patients with a chronic condition are also encouraged to exercise more often. Sports physiotherapy therefore has both curative and preventive aspects. For this reason, rehabilitation of athletes and prevention of sports injuries requires a specialist approach.
Within our team, Robert Vlek, Bouke Hepkema and Laura Bergstra have an affinity with sports rehabilitation.
