PHYSIOTHERAPY AT PHYSICUM IN AMSTERDAM OUD ZUID

PHYSIOTHERAPY AT PHYSICUM IN AMSTERDAM OUD ZUID

Do you have an injury or any problems affecting a muscle or joint? Have you been experiencing these kind of problems for some time now and looking for a long-term solution? Then Physicum is the place for you!

Physicum is a practice for physiotherapy where the physiotherapists work in a different way than in regular physiotherapy. We mainly work with techniques from the Mylogenics method and from Neurokinetic Therapy (NKT). The combination of these techniques have been proven to be very successful.

For what does our approach help?

  • Pain during training or exercise
  • Hip pain
  • Neck pain
  • Pain appearance in but or leg
  • Shoulder pain
  • Knee pain
  • Pain appearance in the arm
  • Ankle pain
  • Lower back pain
  • Tendon inflammation
  • Upper back pain
  • Bursitis inflammation
  • Elbow pain
  • Sports and muscle injuries

 

In what cases our approach does not help

Our approach is not suitable for complaints and limitations that have occurred immediately after an operation. The number of sessions after an operation is longer than we normally do. This is not our expertise. For these cases, you may have the right (at another practice) for long-term guidance with physiotherapy. Please contact your insurance company to ask for this. If it is about a surgery of a few months ago, and if the complaints are still present, then our approach may be very suitable.

Are your complaints caused by a trauma (for example, a sudden injury), and has this happened quite recently? Then the recovery taking its natural course is advisable. Physiotherapy is often not necessary in the first days after a trauma. If you are not sure or have any questions, feel free to contact us.

What makes us different?

To find out why someone has pain, we will always do some tests first. We do this because we are particularly interested in where the pain comes from. It is important to explain that where the pain is felt and where the cause of the pain is, are almost always different locations. You can only find out by doing a series of tests. At Physicum, we are specialists in testing at what causes your pain. These tests take place on the treatment table and as long as the client has comfortable clothing, this can be done fully clothed.

After the research is done it is clear what needs to be treated. At Physicum we’re not only looking at muscles or joints. The body is a whole and also moves as a whole. Also ligaments, tendons, vertebrae can play an important role in the pain you experience. Each area must be treated in a different way. That way we can work holistically. The treatment can also often be done with clothing. In some cases, the outer garments must be removed.

The treatment takes about 50 minutes. The first time an extensive investigation will be done followed by a treatment. Subsequents treatments will also be subjected to a number of tests before the treatment. This is in order to map the progression. We would like to emphasize that we are not going to treat area of pain straight  away. We always first identify what the cause is of the pain and see which tissue structures play a role at that moment. We will then only deal with those structures. We therefore work extremely efficiently and effectively. The advantage of this is that no endless journeys are needed to treat complaints. Most complaints can be resolved within 4 to 8 treatments.

Costs and insurance.

A treatment costs 75 euros. You can pay this amount by card. Physicum physiotherapists are not affiliated with your health insurer and that is a conscious choice! Every year the requirements of the health insurers regarding administation become more severe and this hinders our ability to offer clients the highest quality service. Instead of spending time on administation we prefer to use that time for the client.

Physical Physiotherapists are registered in the quality of the physiotherapy profession and therefore meet all requirements! After the treatment you will receive an invoice that you can submit to your health insurer. You’re reimbursed half to 80 or 90 percent of the costs (provided you’re insured for physiotherapy), but this is different for each health insurer. Please contact your health insurer for more details.
