About Medipoint Parkstad
What is exercise therapy Mensendieck?
Exercise therapy Mensendieck is focused on treating and preventing symptoms which can emerge from an unfavourable posture and movements during daily activities. Certain disorders or diseases can also cause musculoskeletal symptoms. Typically, the exercise therapist looks at the entire posture and physical activity. The cause of symptoms is thus tackled structurally which makes them disappear or diminish, or they are prevented. The ultimate goal of therapy is to enable the patient to see, feel and judge whether his/her posture and movements are being executed correctly. The patient becomes the therapist!

The Exercise Therapist Mensendieck helps when experiencing back- and neck aches, pain in joints, chronic disorder symptoms to the musculoskeletal system and posture, postural abnormalities, headaches, stress and incontinence. The Exercise Therapist is a specialist in teaching healthy physical activity and together with you assesses your lifestyle, posture and way of moving in daily activities. Medipoint in Heerlen (Parkstad) is at your full disposal.
