Chronic Illness

Chronic Illness treatment in Amsterdam

How we age is partly determined by our DNA but our lifestyle also plays a crucial role. Alcohol, lack of exercise, smoking and poor nutrition all heavily influence the amount of muscle mass and strength and therefore the possibility of developing chronic illnesses. Whether cardiovascular problems, diabetes, COPD, or any other chronic issues…. It doesn’t matter what illness you have; exercise is at most times one of the best solutions.

What is a chronic condition?

A “chronic illness” is defined as a disease which is generally has no prospect of full recovery. A chronic disease is usually accompanied by pain, limitations in function or other symptoms. The extent to which people are hampered varies by disease and by every individual.

Chronic illnesses occur at all ages. Over 90% of people aged 75 and older have at least one chronic disease. Nevertheless, there is prevalence among people younger than 40 and that is up to 30%. Unhealthy lifestyle and too little exercise causes a higher risk of problems such as osteoporosis, life-threatening diseases such as cancer and chronic diseases such as cardiovascular disease, muscular dystrophy, asthma and COPD, Diabetes Type II (diabetes), obesity, stroke, arthritis and rheumatism.

Limitations in function and pain are central to chronic conditions such as tearing and fractures after an accident or surgery. Consider cross ligament injuries (knee, elbow, ankle) meniscus, whiplash, herniated disc and frozen shoulder. Functional movement is obviously not for everyone. We at GOH believe it is absolutely worth all the effort and energy to live as healthy and happy as possible.

As a sports person myself,  I understand how important it is to be fit and injury free and since I like helping and supporting people, I figured GOH concept would be the right place to be. As a physical therapist, I take all the time for my clients. I am professional, analytical and I have a holistic approach.

After getting my high school diploma, I realized I had a passion in sports and the best decision I ever made was to start the CIOS (Central Institute of sport leaders education). During this training I found out that caring for people resonated more with my character and therefore i decided to pursue further education, namely Physical Therapy.

Besides my work I also play professional basketball on one of the highest levels in the Netherlands. I spend my spare time with family and friends enjoying long walks, playing sports and watch movies.

"Ik ben naar GOH fysio gegaan voor mijn spanningshoofdpijn dat ontstaat vanwege nekklachten. Hans heeft mij uitgebreid onderzocht, hij neemt echt de tijd en is erg zorgvuldig. Daarnaast geeft hij zeer goed advies voor wat ik verder preventief kan doen om klachten te voorkomen."


"Ik begon zowaar plezier in het rennen te krijgen tot er langzaam een terugkerende zeurende pijn in mijn heup sloop. Ik had mijn hardloopschoenen al bijna aan de wilgen gehangen tot ik bij Hans terecht kwam. Met dagelijkse oefeningen ren ik weer vrolijk, pijnvrij rond."


"Ik heb een afspraak gemaakt vanwege knieklachten. In plaats van zich alleen te richten op het probleemgebied, werd er ook veel aandacht geschonken aan de oorzaak van het probleem. Doordat dat goed voor mij in kaart werd gebracht wist ik waar ik op moest letten tijdens de trainingen om zo andere blessures te voorkomen."


"De fysiotherapeut van GOH heeft mij bijna een jaar geholpen bij een zware revalidatie van mijn arm, zelfs de artsen hadden niet kunnen denken dat we dit eind resultaat zouden boeken. GOH fysio heeft erg veel kennis en zet zich volledig voor een ieder in! Kortom een fantastische fysiotherapie praktijk!!"


"The physiotherapists at GOH guided me very skillfully. In a few sessions my complaints were diminished. Very friendly team which I can really recommend!"
