We regularly see in our practice children between the ages of 2 and 6 who have a specific complaint: middle ear infection. Most of them have already seen a GP and been prescribed antibiotics, and also taken Paracetamol to reduce any fever and/or pain. Unfortunately, in many cases antibiotics are not the solution and complaints often return.

Sciatica is something you often hear about or have experienced yourself. It owes its name to a nerve called the Ischiadicus. This nerve runs from the seat over the back of the leg to below the foot. Pain in this area indicates that the nerve is irritated and can become troublesome. We see patients with the above complaints regularly. This is also the case with Mrs de Boer, the administrative assistant. She had followed the entire regular trajectory (GP, pain relief, X-rays, physiotherapy, MRI scan) without any change in her complaints.
