If you experience a problem in any of the above regions but your complaint is not mentioned, please get in touch with us so that we can discuss it with you. Our practice offers the possibility for a 15 minute  consultation in which we can judge whether or not we can assist with your complaint. This consultation is frees.

Baby's

Our practice is specialised in treating babies because it is equally troublesome to parents as well as their child when a baby is experiencing pain or discomfort, especially for reasons that are unapparent. A frequent complaint is excessive and inconsolable crying. It is important to find out the cause for such crying. Are there intestinal cramps, is there overstimulation or is the baby experiencing an acidic stomach? Also reflux, regurgitation of food, can lead to excessive crying due to overstimulation of the esophagus. Not alone the wrong kind of food but also  a stomach disorder or a trapped nerve can bet he reason leading to reflux. By means of gentle manual treatment we can resolve such complaints with your child. Nutritional advice is also included in the consultation in order to assure a quick recovery for your baby.

 

Gabe Sanders

Following my study and training as a physiotherapist, I underwent a year of practical experience in the USA and worked until 2006 as a physiotherapist in Valkenswaard. I was, among others, physiotherapist to the Dutch men’s national water-polo team. I began studying osteopathy in 1998 at the Sutherland College in Amsterdam and after qualifying in 2003 started my own practice in Eindhoven after qualifying in 2003. I have a special interest and knowledge in human nutrition. My personal quest is to find: the right nutrition for man and understand what influence nutrition has on our health. Other special areas of interest are: irritable bowel, migraine, whiplash and burn-out. In my free time I enjoy running and tennis.
