Straight after finishing my study Physiotherapie, I continued with the specialisation for Manaul Therapy (SOMT, Amersfoort), again the jaw joint was discussed, in relation to headache and neck pain. Therefore, I decided to continue my scholar program after completing Manual Therapy, and started the education for orofacial therapist. A 1,5 year study, in Nijmegen (HAN), in cooperation with Radboud Hospital. Since then, I started following courses and studies in the head-neck-jaw regions, including dizziness and tinnitus. For the actual (followed) courses, I would like to refer to my LinkedIn page.
Subsequently on the orofacial therapy course, I started the Master Manual Therapy (MSc) which I finished in 2014. The exam consited a case report, which I wrote about a patient with jaw problems (trismus).
Within the region of Leiden, I am cooperating in a network with other specialists, focuessed on treating patients with temporomandibulair dysfunctions. This network contains a gnathologist, 3 physiotherapists and a psychologist. Thanks to the network, we have short lines with eachother, so discussing about and treating the same patients are easy.
